What a rotten #migraine day...

I tried to eat small meals... just got IBS-D flaring all day instead so that didn't work out so well.

I work up with a migraine this morning and lay there an extra two hours just unable to function. Dragged myself out of bed and tried to get myself going. Did not happen. Got not a thing done. Just acute pain. And nausea. So eating maybe wasn't such a grand idea. Wasn't a fun one anyway. I distracted myself on the computer for a bit but that became a bit much and just ended up on the couch later. Unable to do anything.

So I resorted to the Cafergot which substantially increased the nausea but reduced the migraine for about three hours. So I was able to read for a bit. Now the migraine is back full blown and the nausea remains. I took one more Cafergot but not sure it is helping at this point so I think I might be back on the couch until the nausea is reduced. Might be a night for some extra sleep medication action.

Acute migraine all day means really no ability to function at all. And with my digestive system rebelling not sure that helped any... in fact it was likely a migraine symptom. But the Cafergot made the situation worse and I was unable to eat anything after that... so really ate very little indeed.

I think I might need to start a food journal. I mean I eat a meal and immediately have problems. I eat small meals have problems all day. Sort think I should begin to track everything and the migraines. I don't know if there is a pattern at all that I can find but maybe I can show it to my doctor and say 'what the hell should I be eating and when?'

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…
