Migraines

Dear Readers,

I have been quite quiet recently due to suffering from crippling migraines. Unfortunately due to the lack of Oxygen in my body because of having Pulmonary Hypertension, I suffer from them throughout my life. However lately they have been pretty regular and it's totally ruining my days!

I get migraine with aura which means I get the blurred vision, pounding headache and sickness. All I can do is lie in bed all day in complete darkness and wait for it to pass. Due to the sickness, I can't eat anything and by the end of the day I manage to eat a bowl of plain boiled rice. For liquids I sip on an Original Lucozade all day as that is the only drink my stomach can handle. It's a bloomin' nightmare!!

I take Sumatriptan, but I have to take it as soon as the migraine starts, but most of the time I am too late and the migraine has taken hold and the tablets don't do any good.

If you are reading this and suffer from migraines and you can give me some advice on how to manage them, then I would love to hear from you.



Thanks for reading!
