4 Aspirin day

I woke this morning with migraine headache. To this point it's been a 4 aspirin day. Waiting for the pain to go away so I can get on with enjoying the good life.

  1. I used to work for a neurologist who specialized in headaches. Ht told me that migraines are sometimes caused by a relaxed portion of a blood vessel in the brain. That relaxed area collects more blood than it ought to, and the weight of the blood causes the headache. He prescribed caffeine for migraines, because it constricts blood vessels. Hey, a doctors prescription for coffee is okay by me!

    Hope you feel better.

    1. Thanks Kris, I don't do coffee so I'll have to find my caffeine elsewhere.

  2. So sorry John. I have chronic migraines so I know the pain. I have RX meds but for over the counter try generic migraine formula products - contains aspirin, acetaminophen, and caffeine. The caffeine really does help. If you have them often see a doctor - there is help.

  3. I can feel bad for you, since Donna suffers from migraines and has for years. No fun. Get over it soon! Take care.

  4. I used to get migraines when I was married then I left him and the headaches went away. All kidding aside they are not fun. Try a can of soda with the caffiene in it. Hope you feel better soon.
