Yeah. I used to get migranes a lot when I was younger. Did exactly what you suggested Squid. The one I'm getting now is not as bad. I thought getting something to eat from the café would calm it down. It did, but only a little.
Weird post. I'm never sick but this morning at about 9:30 am I started getting all these floaters around my eyes. They annoyed and worried me until about 10:20 when they went away. At about 10:45 a headache started and I really thought that was going to send me home. I took two ibuprofen and at about Noon it finally went away, just leaving me sort of nauseous, which finally faded about 10 minutes ago, leaving me sorta shaky, but I think I'll be able to finish my day.
I really was going to dodge out of here by 1 if it all continued.
I had a migraine (a minor one) this morning too. Breakfast, coffee and Midol got rid of it mostly. It's still lingering there behind my left temple, but I can deal with being at work, thankfully. Hope you feel better soon, Smirk & anon!
And thanks for the info, Ginny. I never thought of myself as one to get migraines, nor did I know that about the eye troubles, but I guess maybe I'm getting prone to them.
I do recall one time when I was a teenager getting floaters and within a few hours was puking sick with the flu for a week. I've always associated with that. A few times a year they'll show up, followed by a headache, and I'll get all worried I'm about to be deathly ill for days. But that flu thing hasn't happened since the first time.
Sometimes they are hormonal (I get one without fail, a day or two before I start my period. Sometimes just annoying and sometimes really really bad). But, some people just get them. My dad used to get them bad.
I've had the floaters in my eyes for as long as I can remember. Sometimes they get so bad it can be maddening. But I've only had one time where I had a major visual migraine. It was like watching a psychedelic film in my head. Very weird. It happened right after eating bad Chinese takeout. I've never eaten Chinese food since.
Linds was diagnosed with migraines (with aura) at 12. Puberty (hormones) is a prime time for them to appear .
She can get a bad pain near her eye, get fuzzy vision or even feel weakness or tingles in one hand. Soon as that hits she knows she's going to throw up within 30 minutes and been in bed for about 4 hours.
Neurologist said Advil Liquigels - 2, asap would help. They do, we are never without them
I get migraines occasionally. They suck. The best thing for me is a cold wet cloth over my eyes, Excedrin Migraine, and a dab of Vicks Vapor Rub on the tip of my nose. It sounds weird, but the vapor rub does wonders to open up my breathing and calm the nausea.

Im addicted to caffeine (literally literally) and if I do not drink enough I get horrific headaches. Ive been working at the bakery at 3am and by 5:00 I am on my second cup of coffee. If I am not working and happen to sleep in then I wake up with a pounding head. Because of this, Ive been trying to ween myself off of coffee and am starting to drink more tea. The headachesa get so bad that if I even lean forward it will feel like my head is going to splode.
My schedule is changing and Ive been coming in later (like 5 or 6) so maybe that will help.
