The look of pain and a high temperature…..

It isn’t pretty is it

I don’t know about anyone else with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue, but I’m really struggling at the moment. The air feels thick and my head is banging. I’m so tired, but yet I cannot sleep, no matter how hard I try. I am thirsty, then I need a wee, then I’m in pain, then I’m thirsty again, then I need another wee…… it’s never ending in a loop, and I am so fed up of it all.

We had a massive storm here on Saturday night, and my headache cleared almost immediately and stayed away for a few hours before returning again, but the relief for those few hours was much needed.

A few tips I can share to help with headaches/migraines…..

1 – make sure to drink plenty. It needs to be water/juice based if possible.

2 – take paracetamol (I think it’s Tylenol in other places) with caffeine as it makes the tablets work quicker.

3 – use ice packs on your forehead/neck.

4 – try a cooling towel, I love mine, also maybe a cooling mat to lay on.

5 – try a cold eye mask, I have mine in the fridge.

6 – if you have prescribed medication, take it as soon as you feel you need to, don’t wait until you are in severe pain.

Some thing you won’t think will help – I get horrendous vomiting with my migraines, my medication is administered via a nasal spray, as I cannot keep the tablets down as I vomit so much. I also use travel bands, they seriously do help with more than just travel sickness!

I have linked the products I use on a regular basis below, they can all be found at Amazon.

  1. Well I have another top that two of my friends who suffer bad headaches do.
    They both tell me they run a bath and Kay in it submerging they head . Apparently it seems to help a lot.
    Me I weirdly drink a coffee as for some reason it helps me I don’t know why. Xx

    1. I would get stuck in the bath! Lol! Also don’t have caffeine as a normal, ans I hate coffee so both off my list, but hopefully it will help someone else! The coffee is probably similar to why you should take paracetamol with caffeine as it activates the ingredients of the tablet some how xx
