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!
