[The river is |annoyedannoyed]

So I woke up with a headache Tuesday. I 'm pretty sure it was travel related. I often get a headache within a day or two of flying. I took 1/2 a Phernegin and an Axert, and slept all day. The sleeping was mostly due to getting in late, but also to the meds and the headache. When I finally woke up, I felt fine.

Yesterday I felt fine all day and had fun zooming around Austin with G and Rich. In the evening I was very tired.

Then this morning at 5 am I woke up with a bad headache. I took 3/4 of a Phernegin and a whole Axert and went back to bed with a cold pack and a hot pack. But this was a really, really bad headache and neither drug nor thermal treatment could slow its progress. By about 6:30 am I was in the bathroom as sick as a dog. Afterward, I took a shower and a whole Phernegin and slept the day away.

Now I'm sleepy, spacey and bummed. Last night I decided that who ever invented migraines should be shot.

For the record, yesterday I had lunch at Bangkok Cuisine and a frozen Amy's Vegetarian Meatloaf with Mushroom Gravy for dinner. I also had a sort of giant glazed donut and some cranberry juice for an afternoon snack.

I'm going to try to remember to use a scale to rate the headaches. So, on a a scale of 0 to 10, with 0 being no headache at all and 10 being an unthinkably bad headache:
Today's headache was an 8.
Tuesday's headache was a 6.

Thanks for the info. I've heard of the shots, but when I have bad headaches getting a ride to the hospital and going through all the paperwork seems impossible. I can barely move.

When I get a migraine that I would rate a nine, I've always passed out and been unwakeable for a few hours.

I saw your canoe the other day. It has rolled itself upright, but it looked fine.
