    I feel a Migriane headache coming on. So I took some excredian I hope it works, but knowing my luck it won't. I hate when its my time of the month, it seems like I was just getting over it, and now its here again :(

    Sudendly....

    All of a Suden I have a really bad migraine. It came on about two hours ago. I have taken two excredians for it, and I have also lowered the light on my laptop so it doesn't bother me. It really sucks, but I am doing my best to handle it.....

    It started at 3AM, I had to get up at 6

    and go to work. It's past 10 and that stupid thing still hurts....so annoying. And to make it worse I don't have much to do to keep me busy :(

    I have another migraine.

    It started on the left, so I know it is going to be a rough one. Right now I am nauseated and pain is radiating from my head down my neck to my shoulders. And this is an hour after I took my migraine meds!! FML....someone kill me now.....

    Ow

    I have a terrible migraine headache right now. Its really bad, I can't stand them, because I have no health insurance, so I am using over-the-counter meds, but I still can't take them... because they meds don't do ****. Ugh!!!
