Day 10 HAWMC: The answers.

Yahoo Answers Post – Pretend you are writing a question about your condition – it can be as silly or humorous as you want. Now answer it. (Remember: Your answer can be just as silly)


I heard if you cut your hair you can help your migraines, is this true?

Good question. I do in fact have hair that weights about 2 tons. Which causes a lot of internal structural pressure in the brain. Perhaps internal damage. I am not sure. I generally recommend, for safety sake, no women have long hair just in case.

I heard drinking a lot of water helps with migraines, is that true?

Good question. Dehydration is bad. So drink water. Migraines cause frequent urination. So drink more water. Which causes more urination. If you need me, I'll just be in the bathroom.

What triggers a migraine?

Good question. The weather. Hormones. Lack of sleep. Thinking. Not-thinking. Moving. Sleeping. Breathing. Existentialism. Existence.

Can you work with migraines?

Good question. Working with migraines is like riding a bike. Except the bike is on fire, and you're on fire, and everything is on fire, and you're in hell. And you get to do that the next day. And the next. And you have to smile while you are on fire.

How do you treat migraine nausea and vomiting?

First you take an anti-nausea med like Zofran. When that doesn't work you have some peppermint tea. When that doesn't work you throw up the peppermint tea and have a Gravol. When that doesn't work you eat some ginger. When that doesn't work you decide to just have a non-eating day. Then you get hungry, eat, and immediately regret that choice. And have more zofran. In other words have fun with That!

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…
