It's been a big week. I decided I need to seek more help with managing my migraines. Currently I average about 10 days a month with a migraine, I get through it ok, but it requires days of medication, too much codeine and sometimes a spaced out Mummy that goes to the supermarket to buy one thing and comes home with seven choices for dinner because she couldn't make a decision.
The doctor has suggested two options for me to try, one involves taking medication every day to try and prevent migraines appearing. I am still not sure I want to do that, but will give it a three month trial and see how it goes. There are two side affects of the medication, one it makes you sleepy, so I need to take them at night, the other, it causes weight gain. I wasn't too happy about this one so I decided that I need to start getting on top of that before I start.
I went and gave my all at a Body Combat class.
I can now hardly move. Throwing down voltaren like a crazy lady.
Yes, I am going in circles, I know, I know!
The good bit was that we discussed how I have pretty much given up alcohol to help with the migraines, doctor suggests that clearly that isn't working so I should feel free to drink in moderation again. Hello Winter Merlot with my soup dinners.
