The never ending migraine

Or so it feels like. This migraine has been attacking me for weeks now. Every single day. Some days worse than others, but when it comes down to it, you have to start juggling how you treat them at that point. I am not sure if it the weather that has been dramatically changing every day, or just a killer migraine that is hard to treat. It means I have been useless. Can't do anything when I come home from work. I just want to sleep if I can. At work it has been off and on. Those days when you are just so hazy nothing seems to stick and you eratically forget simple things. Other days that sort of hopmania and shakes. And other days just cranky from the pain. I use up my reserves to get through, and then when work is done, I have already taken my meds and they are not working, and I am out ta lunch then. Even when it is not full blown, it is there, that lingering sharp pain and then the throbbing pain when you lie down. Lovely. Have not been sleeping well as it is and now it is worse.

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…
