#MHAM #MHAMBC #Migraines "Monsters don’t sleep under your bed. They sleep inside your head."

 I'm doing an alternate topic today for Day 5:
Describe your Headache or Migraine monster – what does it look like in your imagination or your dreams?

"Monsters don’t sleep under your bed. They sleep inside your head."



It is the truth you know. There are thousands of invisible monsters sleeping in your head right now. Curled up around your neurons. And they will continue to sleep just fine but the weirdest things will wake them up. And you Do Not Want to wake them up. I would really recommend avoiding light.

And then they wake up and try to claw their way out of your brain. The movement makes you really nauseous at first. And you can feel them trying to get out the eyeballs right away… easy access point I figure. In some people this can cause a lot of visual distortions as they try to push your eyeballs out. Then they are pretty frantic when this doesn’t work and just go nuts. This causes a great deal of sharp pain felt through the brain region and throbbing due to the pressure they cause with their upward movements. Also because they generally are digging about so much the pain can be felt in many facial areas as the hit more than a few nerves. And I think as an alternate route some of them try to go downward and that results in a great deal of neck pain. Anyway clearly it is a futile effort on their part because monsters live in the head and cannot escape the physical confines of this area… however migraine monster cause an insane amount of pain when they try to escape due to their ability to stomp on and claw every nerve around them and the pressure induced by their movements. And they try to escape quite frequently in some people. Stupid buggers never learn.

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.




GENERAL
__ Fatigue, made worse by physical exertion or stress
__ Activity level decreased to less than 50% of pre-illness activity level

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…
