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

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.

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…
