Migraine Awareness Month #15 Harry Potter

Harry Potter:  Write and name a spell for getting rid of a Migraine/Headache attack.

I never read the books myself but I did watch the movies... my bf loves them. lol. So lets give it a go...

Vodium Migrainous- This is a void migraine spell that requires a very specific swirl of the wand and a delicate touch to the right temple... if this isn't done correctly rather than 'void' it can cause a 'Vacuum' which can turn into a internal brain black hole if not left treated with a counter spell. Not a novice spell by any means.

A novice might want to try treating symptoms first. I recommend these:

Adnauseum finitus: This potion is used to treat severe nausea. People tend to find it an unpleasant brew. Some say the peppermint and the ginger conflict... while others rather don't like the earth worms that must be applied after the potion has set and be still alive when the patient takes the potion. However it is the best known treatment for nausea known. However if it is mixed incorrectly it has been known to cause a lack of appetite that can lack for months.

I can see clearly now that the rain is gone: Now this spell has been vastly debated due to its informal language however Professor Flowerpetal has adamantly defended her creation of it in her thesis 'It is the semantics of the words, damn it, not the garble-gook language' and demands us fussypots reconsider its use. There can be no doubt it is useful for visual auras, visual snow and persistent migraine auras for the duration of one month. It only requires a swishing motion of the wand across the eyes as the words are said and a sharp tap against both closed eyes, which only causes some minor discomfort.

Advanced students might want to tackle vertigo or other non-visual auras spells and potions before moving on to Vodium Migrainous

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…
