I Have a Migraine

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 44 People

    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!!!
