I’ve started getting migraines. Actually, that should be ‘I’ve started getting the start of migraines’. As soon as I get that aura-y thing, I take a couple of nurofens and it seems to head it off at the pass.
Speaking of that aura-y thing, the first time it happened I described it to ManFriend and he quickly handed me his migraine pills. I thought it was an acid flashback. I’m disappointed that I don’t get acid flashbacks. Good times.
Each time the migraine starts, I can’t just let it happen so I know what happens, because I’ve got something to go to or do. Yesterday (aura-y number three) had to be stopped because we had ManFriend’s birthday dinner with his parental artists (I haven’t thought of a pseudonym for them yet).
I have no idea what sets it off. So, rather than exercise my google finger and end up in some depraved place of quackery, I thought I’d ask you: do you get them, what are they like, and what sets them off?
Update: How does a post about migraines end up at synchronised fisting as an Olympic sport?
