myluckyseven: (they just can't get my nose right :()
man i suddenly remembered that a doctor once suggested that i just take OTC painkillers til my liver fails/the pain ~*~magically stops~*~ to cure a chronic headache

that was a real thing that a medical professional told me to do

i did not do it, obviously, because that would have been a terrible idea and i had already established that OTC stuff didn't do diddly or squat but still it's kind of hard to believe that was an actual thing that happened.


in other Augh Pills news, i got some supplement stuff that is supposed to be good at quelling the physical urge for self-destructive impulse habits. here is hoping it keeps me from scratching all my skin off/chewing all my nails off/insert various other more embarrassing habits here.


i don't know what's wrong with me i just know there's a substantial amount of it

On my migraines

I haven't really talked or thought about it heavily in a while, so I'm gonna do some wordvomiting on my headache problem!

For those not up to speed, because I talked about it in like three different places and never consistently, I've had a migraine problem that probably started in 2010, but didn't get noticable until early 2011, and I didn't get treated until it blossomed into a month-long headache in September 2011. My doctor still has no explanation for that event, my CT scan came back normal, and there's really no known reason why I have the fucking things at all except "hormones maybe????" which is the answer to all my various health failures, it seems.

For the rest of 2011 and a good chunk of this year, I've gone on and off lots of pills, and finally after deciding "let's just try ditching absolutely everything, because at the very least you won't die horribly when your migraines + OBC cause an aneurysm," I stabilized out from "ridiculously chronic" to "once a month" migraines, which was my "acceptable-ish" point.

At least, I think they're migraines. That was under question for a while, cause I don't get auras. Which is nice, because major sound & light sensitivity on top of horrible pain would be awful, but also sucks because I have little to no warning before said pain hits. It ramps up a LITTLE from "low to high" but even "low" is shitty.

Anyways, like I said, these days I'm down to the one headache a month, and I have working painkillers, so things are a TON better than they were this time last year. I lucked out HARD there, if this site I'm looking at is right, because they leave me pain-free if fuzzy, and apparently they only work to kill pain completely for 20% of people? Holy crap. Sumatriptan has been good to me. I've come a long way from desperately hoping that the Excedrin I just took wouldn't make me vomit and would hold the pain off for an hour AND I could fall asleep in that time, just to try to escape the constant throbbing.

I mean, I still am popping pills, fucking up my sleep, and not getting much done on migraine days, but it's better.


This started as a reaction to something I saw on tumblr, but halfway through I realized it really has been almost a year since I started trying to treat this shit. And I've lived in nigh-constant fear of the headache starting and then never going away.

Heck, I'm worried right now the little niggle in my forehead will blow up.


But at least it's better than it was, I guess.
