I began to get a migraine at our church's business meeting Sunday night. It was a stressful, emotionally charged meeting that lasted over 3 hours. I ended up leaving church sobbing. It was hard to see my pastors being unfairly attacked. The stress of that meeting carried over to Monday, I decided to deal with it by bingeing, yes...bingeing on a whole bag of Brachs Malted Milk Balls. Big mistake. Not just because of the huge amount of calories, but chocolate and migraines do not go together well. Last night, I went to bed with the worst migraine I have ever had in my life. I had taken all the Frova, migraine medication, I was allowed. I took extra Xanax to try to get me to relax and to make me "pass out" so I could sleep through the the pain. Nothing was working. Russ rubbed my head for 2 hours as I alternated from sobbing, to almost relaxing enough to fall asleep, when the next wave of pain would come and I would sob again. Poor man felt so helpless. At 11:00 he called Laurie while I stumbled into the bathroom to run a hot tub bath, hoping the warm water would help me relax, which it did. After calling Laurie, he called my doctor's office and talked to who was on call. They said if I can't get to sleep, to get me to the ER where they would give me a large does of antihistamine in shot form to help me with the pain. I am thankful we didn't need to resort to that measure, but it's good to know what I can do if I ever have a migraine that severe again.
