Weather trigger... guess that was the answer to that migraine. Mystery solved.

It's raining, its pouring... pain, pain go away come back some other day. Or not. Not saying you have to come back some other day. It was actually quite the thunder boomer... heavy rain, then hail, then rain, then hail... some good thunder and lightning. And two of the cats of course were in the basement for hours. For one of those sudden spring storms it lasted longer than I thought it would actually, but those are the worst though... if it is rainy all day, not an issue. Rather like cloudy, rainy days. I actually love storms as well... just my brain isn't fond of them.

I managed to get rid of a three day migraine with some heavily medicated sleep so I woke up feeling pretty good. The first indication I was getting a migraine at all was just the sudden bout of vertigo.

Wish i could have caught a picture of the downpour of the nutty hail, but I was resting my brain before the Migraine Misfits Chat... or I would have been real brainless by then! The vertigo and that first pressure of pain did give me some good reaction time and the pain isn't nearly as intense as yesterday.

100 Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

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.

Getting through the high intensity pain flares #Blogboost

The crowded me out of the brain. Making no room for anything else. Distraction was impossible. You feel almost frantic with the pain but must be still.

What do you do? To get through it when you have no distraction?

I ask me this as I am really in the depths of a 9 level frantic level of pain right now. Hoping maybe some writing will be a distraction, but it isn't. As I said, the pain crowds the brain. I have to focus real hard to write and my head isn't clear. Too much pain to focus well. Things become quite difficult to do. 

I will say this: We cannot function. We have to just cope with the pain.

But we are Immersed in the pain, we what do we do?
We can and should rest and get through it the best we can. Here are some of the things I do to get through it.

Relaxation breathing: I can't meditate when in high levels of pain. It just makes me think about how much pain I am in. Just not a good idea. But I do do relaxation breathing. I close my eyes. I focus on my breathing. I even…
