A Very Bad Idea - Knitting with a Migraine

I have been suffering with migraines since I am 16. It totally SUCKS. They have gone from awful where I take handfuls of medication to manageable with no medications to just needing herbal supplements to back to needing handfuls of medications which is where I am now. I have done all the allergen testing, the CAT scans, the MRIs, the battery of testing. It really sucks.

Last night I had one such horrible, no good, very bad, migraine. I still have some of the remnants this morning. I took some of my medication and thought I would try to knit. Boy was that a bad idea. Ever try to knit when someone was jackhammering your head? Probably not but, it felt like that. I had to put the knitting away :-(

I will try again to knit later today. Migraine, Migraine go away come back NEVER!

I do hope your Migraines get better. I hate when one comes on and even after taking something and going to bed I will wake up with one. Those suck. Happy Knitting Migraine free!

The voices in your head must be talkng too loud again and gave you a headache. ;)

Sorry abt the headaches, I totally understand. And yes it ISNT a good idea to knit with a brain draining pain, don't ask how I know.....

Mine are so bad sometimes that I'm sore the next day. Though I suppose they've gotten slightly better than they used to be after a car accident i had years back. I suck down Advil and Caffeine, and hope for salvation, mostly. I had some prescription barbituate/caffeine combo for a while, but I like to avoid habit forming drugs LOL

I do hope you're feeling better :)
