Getting irritable

Post  pen on Mon Jun 14, 2010 9:29 am

I dont know if this might be more for the ladies.
I find that right when I get a better day or two I get really irritable.
My husband irritates the life out of me, but it is pretty general.

I dont know what the cause is. I
I hate it. A day or two of less pain and I am in a bad mood.

Does anyone else experience this please?
Is there a "medical" reason for it?
Is it my hormones?
Or am I just a bad tempered bitch sometimes??

That would be my guess, Pen. Wink But then, I'm a guy.

I wish I knew the answer! I get that way, too. Logically, when I'm not headachy, I should be happy and bouncy and enjoying life - instead, I can be quite the surly hag. Just want to poke people with sharp sticks and tell them to get back.

Maybe there is a hormonal component? I blame estrogen... Smile

Ah Hal, and I thought we were friends....
Actually I have never had PMS or anything and am pretty good tempered and dont have moods.
But this.....you might be right...

Hey, there (sorry dont know your name). You just described it.
Isnt it the pits when you want to be happy because you have less pain?
I try to snap out of it, but instead just snap... pale

Are you sure you're over it?

That's just it. I know when I'm on the back side of a spell or about to get one, it's best to leave me the h e double hockey sticks alone. I'm cranky and not feeling the best or recovering and just leave me alone. My poor dogs get the brunt of momma's crankyness - quit the dog gone barking! Good thing they know to shut up and just come cuddle with me. Smile

I think it is prodome. I feel like crap for a couple of days after the worst of the pain goes away. Cranky, achy, irritable.... It can also be a prodome. When I get irrationally irritated I know that a migraine is coming within the next day or two. It's frustrating because it is too soon to do anything and I just feel helpless... Which doesn't help the bitchiness.

It's odd you have the irritability after the mig. I have it during the attack but snap right into a good mood afterwards..

If it happens to you consistently then it certainly sounds bio-chemical. When I was on topamax it was real bad.

But with migs there is still so much mystery that finding the post mig irritability cause could be challenging.

Thinking about it, as I have had 3 days without Triptan and the irritability came on today.
It isnt right after, it is probably more like before. Guess will find that out tomorrow.
But it also isnt every migraine either. I shall pay closer attention.

Mainly I just wondered if it is just me, or just women?
Just got in a fight with my husband over nothing really, but I needed to vent maybe.
Sorted now anyway.

Its so dumb. I should feel nicer, I dont get much time in between.

Yes Pen, we are friends. I couldn't tell that to someone I didn't know? I get that way when I have a migraine. I still have the migraine that the guy gave me Saturday morning. Tomorrow to the MD to check it out. Today I had to go to the insurance company and get the insurance straightened out. They wrote the policy wrong. You just would not want to be on the other side of the desk from me when I have a "bad headache". So, it isn't just you women folk that can be a witch and I know it is the migraine.

Hi Hal,

Interesting, and sorry for your having it too.
I think we get so used to having "hormones" we tend to blame them as well as others complaining about them.
I am so old I shouldn't even have any anymore. confused

This morning, so far, the migraine isnt here. And I dont feel so irritable.
My husband described last night episode as a "minor skirmish".
It was over a pair of his pants.... cheers
See that even made me smile retrospectively...

I think I hold a lot in, and then maybe with the migraine changes I dont do such a good job of it.
Well it is nice to think it is not just another "woman's problem".
But dont know what to blame now, and too bad it is potentially all of us.

I just thought, one person I know, woman, cries a lot in her better days....
So maybe it is tension and she learned to let it out....

Answers on a post card please.... sunny

Hope today is better for you Hal, my friend.

Pen

I have arguments with Sweetie over his pants too. I want him to take them off. He wants to leave them on. Twisted Evil

Chris, you are absolutely bad. There is just no hope for you. Besides, it is usually the other way around.

I'm naughty, not bad. But you're correct. No hope for me.

You know, we suffer so much and so often. When I can go for the laugh, I do. It helps relieve the horrible anxiety. At least it does for me.

Pen, sorry. I'm not making light of your situation. I'm just poking fun at myself. It helps me cope.

there is also as well as the other possibilities the others raised pen the issue of meds youre obviously not taking any meds on the days you feel well, is it that your body is doing a crave for them??

Hi Dawn,

No its not medication. It makes no difference. I haven't had a Triptan for 5 days (thankfully).
And I didnt have any OTC for 6 days (thankfully), but this irritability can come regardless.
I checked my diary. It actually doesn't seem to be to do with migraine in any obvious way.
It does seem to be when I ought to be feeling better because I have less pain, but can be on or off Triptans.
And on or off OTC.

I think it must be hormones and given they have always seemed to be my only trigger, maybe that's it.?

Chris, the pants were not nearly so interesting sadly. It was a laundry issue, and he ended up storming out to the garbage and chucking them out......I'd say that was a knee jerk reaction, but maybe just a jerk...cheers

About as difficult as being married to someone who has chronic back pain, and other problems that they never seem to really do anything about Dawn. And who is quite deaf but wont wear the hearing aids they have been given.

Im not sure what exactly you are commenting on, but the pants row was a joke....
It was the lack of listening that started that, I just wasn't in the mood for it.

Wait until you have been married 40 years, it is bloody hard work.
But then its real life isnt it. Very Happy

Chris - you cracked me up. Smile I needed a smile and, well, in my experience it has been more as Hal described. Shocked Good for you though!

No one said relationships were easy. I haven't heard from my honey in a month! I know what he's doing though and why he is but there are days it gets hard. Lot of things I'd like to bounce off of him. But then some of the crap I've been dealing with would just tick him off...

Pen - could be hormones. We're women, why not? Wink It also could be that you've been trying to "be nice" because you don't feel well and now you're making up for lost time.... Sometimes it's a let down, have to deal with the stress you were under and was trying not to spew it out on the nearest target when you weren't feeling well.
