The blood patch to treat the headache that followed my spinal tap required an emergency room visit, so I waited until it became absolutely necessary. It didn’t! I skipped it altogether and felt better on Sunday.
Then the hormones from the birth control pills I started Sunday morning kicked in and triggered a massive migraine. It eased off today and I’m enjoying the break. My migraines will probably be more frequent as my body adjusts to the hormones. I’m trying to be extra vigilant so I can use abortives as soon into the migraine as possible.
It has been a tough week, but I’m in good spirits. Since this last migraine let up, I’m using my migraine-free moments wisely. I’ve spent four hours organizing the basement, made cookies and cleaned the kitchen. Now I’m working and looking through the picture window at falling snow. I have a pretty good life.
