My migraines don't just hit me though - mine are progressive. They can start at midday (and I can tell straight away if it's going to lead to a migraine) and progress until possibly at 5/6ish pm I am curled up in a ball on the couch or in bed. I don't vomit (but I feel like I could!) - however I am extremely sensitive to light. And there is NO WAY I could drive or even walk properly in a straight line. I was becoming immune to mersyndol (night strength) but because I couldn't take them for 9 months whilst pregnant my resistance levels must have dropped because they now work better on me (but make me drop off to sleep almost immediately). Having 2 young children makes it really tough when daddy's at work and regardless of the migraine I have - I'm still the mum Those afternoons are soooooo HARD!
FH is not a migraine sufferer and because he doesn't understand the intensity of them (he honestly just thinks they are like normal headaches) he often tells me to "suck it up". Yes - that makes me quite mad.
I get those aswell,
I'm lucky when I first got together with Dh he had no idea and thought I couldn't handle pain, but after seeing me get them he finally understood,
and he goes my friends who said they suffer migraines are lying.
But I think I've given my dreaded migraines to Ayden
