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

Signs the pain is getting the best of you

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…

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…
