It is the never ending migraine

I have been fighting a migraine for days. Tried Axert, it came back. Tried T3s, just cut the edge off for an hour. Tried aspirin, as to prevent a rebound and got quite sick... so ulcer... still there. Tried nothing and sleeping, and not so effective. Yesterday was like torture. I made it to work, thinking I would be able to win the fight, but I was lost the moment I woke up. I took an Axert as soon as I got to work, but it was only fifty percent effective, cut the pain down and reduced some of the painful light sensativity, but that migraine kicked in full strength a couple hours later. I waited as long as I could, but I had to take the second abortive. It worked a little better and a little longer, but made my heart rate go weird and gave me chest pains. At that point, so glad work was finished... I do not remember what I did at work, all I remember is trying to focus on one task at a time and being so drained it was hard to keep my eyes open. When I got home I used two T3s spaced out during the night to dull the edge off, took a long nap and wondered if it was ever going to quit. Well, it did not quit. This morning I was just drained, hot, sick and in a lot of pain. So I called in sick, just unable to contemplate repeating the endless pain of Monday. And I have slept till now and this migraine is still here. Status migraine. Migraine hell.

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…
