Apparently, the NEW new book (K-III) doesn't like Messiah music. It wants Beethoven.
Darn uppity manuscripts. ;)
Hmmm... I had a minor migraine yesterday. I chalked it up to stress and sleeping at a motel, but maybe it was the weather. Whatever it was, I hope your headache got better as quickly as mine did.
I have one now. I can't find a decent preventative, and I really need the time these are stealing.
The OTC headache medicine that my neurologist recommended is Aleve. She was right. Aleve turns out to be the only OTC headache medicine that doesn't give me a headache.
If you decide to try it, check with your doctor to get a recommended dosage.
I already take it for other problems (I have scoliosis, JUST under recommended surgery curvature) so that's not likely to help. Tylenol or Excedrin (migraine or tension headache) often helps, but not a full blown migraine already.
I've tried a couple preventatives, Topamax and Inderall. Topamax causes too many intellectual deficiencies (I also don't have time to be that stupid) and Inderall doesn't stop making me exhausted, no matter how I vary dosage and time of day. At some point I'll have to stop taking the hormonal birth control, because I know that's exacerbating them.

I don't know if you've tried Maxalt. Imitrex was worse than the migraine proper, but Maxalt, if taken right as my migraine starts, seems to stop it cold.
I'm on a maintenance dose of Aleve. It's great for reducing inflammation, but it did nothing to prevent a recent two day migraine, and it's not much of a pain reliever, either. It wasn't clear whether Maxalt could be taken with the Aleve.
You know I wonder if I had a migraine headache on Friday. The light hurt my eyes a lot, which it doesn't usually do, but I know it was sinus pressure. I've been told that mountain cedar is starting up. I'm VERY allergic to it. Despite taking year around allergy medicine, I still have a horrible reaction to the pollens I'm horribly allergic to.
Anyways, I understand light sensitivity is the key thing to migraines. I usually ignore headaches, but I finally had to take something for this one.
