A six week migraine? That's horrifying. I'm very curious to know how you coped with it. I mean, that kind of pain for six weeks nonstop; I may have gone stark raving mad. I'm not exaggerating.
It actually makes me thankful for my own. I used to get them all the time when I was younger, starting around the age of 7, two or three times a week. Eventually, they petered out and seemed to follow my cycle. Now I get them once a year or even less. Relatively speaking, my migraines are very mild; I don't get auras or throw up, and the headache part only lasts a few hours, but boy is it intense. The hours before the headache strikes, I'm shaky and hungry but don't feel like eating anything. After the pain is gone, I get this bizarre euphoria that lasts for hours. And I eat like a cow. The euphoria feels good, but it's also so intense that it, too, is almost painful. I don't know if that makes any sense. I get so happy that I don't know what to do with myself, and I'm prone to acting a little crazy. I've learned not to go shopping in this state. Does anyone else get this?
