As I have mentioned Amerge is a triptan to abort migraines, and is one of the few things good for hormonal migraines. Tripatans are the things I should not be one cause of the whole angina with Imitrex. But you gotta try when it is the only thing that may work. So I tried to day. About then minutes later I had an asthma attack. Ten minutes after that the migraine dimmed and then was gone. Ten minutes after that I felt very wobbly and tired, with heart skipped beats and a ache in my chest. By nightfall, shortness of breath again, though not as bad as at first, took my med for that.

So ya, It messed with the asthma, or gaving me trouble breathing for some other reason. Yeah, it did some funky heart thing on me and I felt a bit out of sorts. But it got rid of the fricken migraine... the five day long hormonal bastard of a migraine. I think it is worth it... so I need to take my asthma puffer a few times and pay attention to my heart rate. No big biggy. The asthma thing does not faze me really, and the puffer helps, so I can deal with that. If using it gets me through those hormonal migraines it is all good to me.

Signs the pain is getting the best of you

100 Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

There was a site that had this and I had linked to it on Tumblr but it is gone. So I had to hunt down someone who found my post and posted the whole thing in a forum. Anyway it is around but I'm posting it here so I will not have to hunt it down to reference it. Now we all know the major symptoms are the wide-spread pain, but our pain isn't just muscle pain... it can be nerve types of pain as well, and the fatigue and the insomnia. And even among symptoms there are some far more frequent than others, but it should be said we have categories... like the cognitive dysfunction, which is a broad one that has more than one symptom and we often just say fibrofog. The insomnia... more than one sleeping disorder. So the list is interesting.

__ Fatigue, made worse by physical exertion or stress
__ Activity level decreased to less than 50% of pre-illness activity level
__ Recurrent flu-like illness
__ Sore throat
__ Hoarseness
__ Tender or swollen lymph nodes (glands), especiall…

When I say I am good

When people ask me how I am feeling 99% of the time I am lying. I often say 'not bad', because I feel it is slightly more honest than 'good' or 'fine'. Got sick of fine. Anyway, I lie for many reasons. 

I'm having a good pain day: They happen and I'll say that I'm good, fine, not bad. I even feel like I can accomplish great things... in moderation. In which case, relatively speaking, for Me I am not actually lying. This is a Good pain day, it is Not Bad for me and I am Fine with it. I just don't want to explain: I just don't want to explain how crappy I feel and in which way I mean. Because I am tired of it. I just want to deal with it, without having to discuss it, mention it or have any sympathy expressed about it. Because it can be complicated. It may be a migraine with specific symptoms. Maybe it is a FM flare though. Or both. And then I have to explain what it is because most people think my migraines are the main issue but I could be FM…
