So my headache was still hanging around when I got ready for work yesterday.  It was better, but not gone, and I was pretty sure it would get worse after a couple hours spent staring at the dual screens on my work PC.  So when Walker dug out a bottle of Advil Migraine, I figured it was worth a shot, even though I didnt have a true migraine.  Extra Strength Excedrin hadnt help edat all, and Aleve didnt help much.  My prescription ibuprofen would put me to sleep.  I was out of options.  I did read the full label, just to make sure there were no warnings about causing drowsiness or not to drive.  Nothing like that, so I decided to go for it.  The adult dosage was two capsules with a full glass of water, so thats what I took.

Big mistake.  Huge.

My headache did fuzz out pretty quickly, but so did the rest of me.  Within the hour I started feeling all cottony, like Id had a couple of glasses of wine.  Which I hadnt, of course.  By this point it was too late to call in sick to the office.  It was also too late to catch a nap, which I really, really needed at that point.  I had less than an hour until I had to leave for work.  What to do?  Bring on the caffeine. 

Yeah, I know, bad plan.

Honestly, I probably should have stayed home.  If Walker or one of my friends was in the shape I was in, I would have advised them to stay put.  Why do I push myself harder?  Probably because, miserable as I felt, I knew I could do it.  I could get myself to the office, do my job, and get myself home.  And that’s just what I did.  It was a long, painful, drowsy night, but I powered through it.

I drove home  - carefully - through freezing rain and was very grateful to park in my driveway, safe & sound.  Tomorrow is another day, right? Hopefully when I wake up this dang headache will be gone.


  1. Oh, so sorry you are still sick. Hoping sleep will help. Let us know.

  2. I used to get Migraines so often. After I got older they pretty much stopped. BUT NOW I FEEL SOME DAYS LIKE ONE IS COMING ON AND I TAKE EXCEDRIN MIGRAINE. It has asprin in it and I should not take it because I am on a blood thinner. Will see my Dr. the tenth and will mention the headaches to him. The pain pills for my Joints does nothing for the headache. Please be very careful. On top of it , an ice storm!!!~

  3. This is terrible. I am so sorry to hear that the headache is hanging on making you miserable. You should have taken the meds and gone to sleep, calling in at work. Looking at a computer screen and then the stress of driving in freezing rain, ARGH, indeed. If you're still suffering with this headache, tonight, into tommorrow, I'd go see someone about it. SERIOUSLY, they shouldn't LAST this long. Take care. Feel better soon.
