Surviving Springtime

Post  Ivy on Thu Mar 18, 2010 7:21 am

The party is over.
The prolonged winter time has finally turned into a warm springtime and my head has begun to hurt daily.

In this period, I wake in the morning and my head starts to pound. I get a mild pain all around my head. I also feel some nausea, but nothing compared to what I feel during a real migraine attack.

I can work, I can perform my normal activities but my head is so heavy and throbbing. It improves only when it gets dark and the temperature drops down.

My normal abortive is not a good option in this period. It makes the pain go away, but the next day my head is sore again, so I risk to take strong stuff daily for a mild (but annoying) pain.

I take paracetamol once a day in the worst days and rub all types of oils and tiger balms at work (they seem to help somehow). As soon as I get home from work, I spent most of the time on the couch with ice packs on my head.

I look forward to weather forecast every day. I hope to read that a wave of cold and rain reaches us from Siberia, it can still happen in these weeks

Till the end of April, I will be knocked out. It happens every year. Then, in May the situation improves. Probably my body finally adjusts to warm temps.

I want to move to the North Pole and remain there for ever....

Have a nice day Laughing

I used to love thunderstorms and wild weather. I was a trained tornado spotter and would head out with excitement with my binoculars in hand.

No more. I dread the changes in the weather that spring brings.

Bleah on spring.. I don't know if it was the pollen or the air pressure that triggered this one, but once again, I woke up with my head splitting.
