Migraines every day: Ouch. Taking pain pills every day: Guilty.
Then Friday night’s attack happened. It was so painful and so torturous that now I feel traumatized. It’s hard to describe a 10-on-the-pain-scale migraine attack. Or maybe even above a 10.
The attack was so scary. I was in pain all day, but around 9 pm was when it escalated. And it lasted until I finally took a Benadryl and fell asleep (passed out?) sometime around 1:30 am.
Does this happen to other migraine sufferers? Do you ever get an attack so bad that it makes your other pain seem mild?
Sometimes I forget that it is possible for these migraines to get this bad. I almost went to the ER, because it felt like my brain exploded. I was crying hysterically to the point of almost screaming.
Yesterday and today (so far) have been better. I’m in migraine postdrome, and every time I move my head I feel pressure and some leftover pain from Friday (but not even close to being as bad). It’s just enough to remind me of Friday and warn me that if I do too much, it could happen again.
C’est la vie.
