Not Quite Steampunk

You know how it is, tablet after tablet, wanting to rip out an eye with the pain, staring at a computer all day as part of your job when all you want to do it lie in a dark room and sleep it off.
My headache started Saturday and know matter what I couldn't shake it off, Monday Morning came and I had a blind spot in my right eye, I got through a whole packet of Neurofen trying to shake off the pain, taking off my glasses and adding pressure to where it hurt most.
Rushing home knowing I was headed straight to bed, Chris made me dinner and I got back up, more tablets needed, and then I reached for my trusty friend.
A bit of steampunk and some menthol crystals then back to bed.
So this morning it is back to a dull ache, thankfully no work today, hairdressers at 1:30pm and hospital to see specialist after that.
I think another head steaming before I go.

I think the steam is one the most fabulous ways to clear a head, I have used it for years Jak. I do hope you feel much better, especially after a day away from close work...

Oh Jak, my husband is suffering too with blinding headaches, He's normally a happy person who laughs a lot, just now he's so grumpy and it's just not like him. He's tried all sorts of medication but nothing seems to work. He's waiting on an appointment at the hospital to see if they can help.

I do hope you get some relief soon. Take Care lovely lady.

I'm a great believer in Acupuncture Jak. Not that I suffer from Migraines anymore but go to an Osteophath for muscle pain relief. She puts needles in my upper back and right up onto my head. I do believe she said it alters the chemical balance in your body. Fairly helps me. Hope you find some relief soon. Carolxx

Hi Jak, I suffered with migraines for years and believe me when I say I tried every method of pain relief on the market -acupunture, osteo, cyropractor - nothing worked. 2 years ago I saw a consultant who put me on topirimate, i believe it has to be prescrbed by a consultant, but i had almost immediate relief. Comes with its own side effects like memory loss but I havent had a single migraine since taking hem ( unless I try to come off them)

Email me if you want a chat?
