I had a migraine at work today. I sort of wondered if I'd get a migraine this month, since my menstrual cycle was super weird last month. I get them occasionally when my hormones go on the fritz, but this was a lot later than I thought it would be.
I started to get the beginnings of migraine aura; I couldn't read the words on the computer, and I couldn't concentrate, which are my first big clues. I called my boss (I work alone) and said, "Hey, getting a migraine, may not answer the phone for a half hour until I can see again." Yep.
Don't get migraines, or don't get them with aura? Here's what aura looks like when I get migraines:
AND apparently migraine with aura is linked to possible brain damage later in life.
That's lame. My mom and I both get migraine with aura. Brain damage is DUMB.
So yeah. I'm sitting here at work with a tap tap tap tap OW tap tap tap tap in my head. And my vision is still a bit blurry. So that sucks. But at least I only get them once every few months. And now you know what aura looks like. I know. What an exciting post.
