Migraines and Godzilla




Haha,  Ha.  Ahh.

I'd laugh harder but it would hurt my head more.

Getting nerve blocking injections in my face and neck today.

Does it hurt?

It doesn't tickle.
 
But it hurts less than a migraine.
 
See, there IS an up side to (almost) everything.

Ohhh so sorry for the migraine and injections. I did a year of injections at my temple. They were not nerve blocking, rather a solution to help get rid of migraine. Did it work? NOOOOOO
Hurt???? AAAHHHHH Yeah it doesn't tickle. Sending healing energy your way.

love that meme! my ex husband would tell me, "oh just get up and take a shower. you'll feel better" He didn't get it.

I hope this treatment works for you. Hugs.

Sandra said...

i'll be borrowing this meme :)

Heather said...

((((Lori)))) I hope the injections help. Having been there myself, I'm not so sure I agree with you that Godzilla is worse.. ;)

Terri said...

Hoping you feel better real soon! That "You Card" is perfect way to try and explain the difference.
Hugs

So sorry you have to go through this constantly. I understand pain, but you have put up with too much <3

Barb Fernald said...

So true. People who don't get migraines have no idea what it's like. I hope the injections do the trick for you. Healing thoughts headed your way. I hope you can rest after your appointments today.

trying to explain a migraine to someone who's never had one is just a waste of time. They may listen, but they still just think it's a headache.

I clicked the link as I'm forever trying to find a way out of my migraine hell (I get them 3-4 times a week if I don't take a really horrible preventative drug which reduces them to monthly though I've had three this month already) and it said it only works for 6-8 hours - surely that can't work?

I managed to get a referral to the consultant neurologist at the hospital and he suggested that I try not taking any painkillers... my faith in doctors is greatly reduced and from now on I think I'm going to have to try to manage it myself...

Hope it helps - I hate even the smallest headache

Hope the relief from you pain is coming very soon. Very sorry you have this in your life...nice to see that you haven't let it reach your funny bone though!

I seriously hope the injections help. And my piece of virtual pie I'm sending to you, along with warm fuzzy slippers and hot tea. :)

Penny said...

"Oh, I have migraines too. A brisk walk in fresh air usually helps, you should try it!"
Sure, as soon as I have stopped vomiting.
Some people just don´t get it.
Hope you are feeling better by now!
P.S. Absolutely love your card!

I'm so sorry that you're dealing with yet another migraine. Though I've not had one in many years, I can sympathize. My migraine years were the worst times in my life.

I hope your injections give you some real relief. ((Lori))

I really hope that these work for you. You already suffer way too much pain.

Kayla @ TheEclecticElement said...

There's ALWAYS a silver lining to any situations, it's just a matter of being open enough to find and appreciate it :)

I certainly hope these shots help to give you at least SOME relief!

Jenn said...

Oh, dear Lori! My heart goes out to you! Hugs!

Jean A. Wells said...

I can't imagine what it must be like to live with constant migraines. You are one strong determined woman. Sending healing hugs your way.

Regina said...

Hope the injections help you feel better soon.

stregajewellry said...

Owwww! Never had one bad enough for those shots but have heard of this before. Hope you are better soon. I used to get horrid headaches and would have to lay down with an icepack on my neck to get rid of them and they were bad enough, I use this chinese oil fpr jeadacjes. Its called Yee Tin Tong oil and a tiny bottle will last a long time. Dont know how it would work on a migraine, but on a nasty sinus headaches, it will take about 30 seconds and its gone.

I hope you'll be migrane free in no time :-)
Sending you kind thoughts!

Migraine is definitely not "just a headache". I am so sorry you are in great pain. Hope the injections help and you feel better soon. Take care and thanks for working hard even under such circumstances. Hugs...

~well wishes for you this day and those that come forth...i did acupuncture for a few years and as long as i religiously went my migraines were kept at bay...sad part is insurance only covers 12 per year and paying out of pocket exhausts funds all to quickly...its really a shame...i couldn't imagine having nerve blocks nor epidurals as two were enough for me...but i guess we do what we have to in order to be able to function and get through the day...may you find relief today...be well~

sandi m said...

Lori, Hope you get some relief from this treatment and that it lasts for awhile this time. Feel better- soon!

Martha Aleo said...

Lori, I've been there. Never got the injections in the face though.

I hope you get some relief. Things will just have to wait until you are good and ready to get to them.

Lea Avroch said...

you poor thing! You've suffered so much, yet still maintain your sense of humor. Love ya Lori! Hope the injections help! <3

Maria Rosa Sharrow said...

Lori my heart goes out to you. I suffered for over a year with daily migraines just too much to handle after endless visits to various doctors. unfortunately nothing they did or gave me helped. I changed my diet and started taking several natural supplements and now they seldom occur.It has been a blessing to me. If this doesnt work for you I would be glad to share with You what has helped me and maybe it may help you too.

Love the card funny yet oh so true.
