Is this normal?

Okay, for some unknown reason, that appointment yesterday has triggered one of my migraines from hell. Yesterday was awful. Today, there wasn't as much head pain but it felt like I still had the migraine. Again, no pain but was having extreme sensitivity to light and sound only on the right side. Like every single noise was magnified 10 fold. Even resorted to taking 2 Vicodin last night. That stopped for the night but it's back.

Amanda I am sorry to here that you are having trouble with migraines again. Hoped you start feeling better. My Neuro put me on CQ 10 x a day. It has helped me I don't have as many as I used to. Will keep you thoughts and prayers.

Weezie, is CQ x 10 a day available over the counter or is it prescription?

Hope your migraine gets better and not worse. They're horrible! πŸ™πŸŒΌ

Well FlappysLady, I thought it was getting better now, but it is just kind of hovering in the middle of my freaking head despite medication. It just won't break already.

I think maybe there's a weather connection because I've had a headache every day since Saturday and 3 have triggered migraines. I'm much better at identifying them early now. Try to get some rest and maybe it will ease up. I use Midrin, which has caffeine and acetaminophen and a third ingredient I can't remember. Praying you'll have a better day tomorrow! πŸŒΌπŸ™

Amanda, that's great! Take it easy today and if a headache starts note what you were doing just before. Praying it will be a pain free day for you! πŸ™πŸŒΌ

Amanda, I'm so sorry you are having this migraine. I had a CT Scan this morning and my head hurts so badly right now, I'm feeling like I'm going to throw up and I'm dizzy. I'll find out on Wednesday what the story is. Meanwhile, the ringing in my ears is so loud, it's deafening. I also had to skip meds this morning so the pain is beyond the meds. Please take it easy today and rest. You'll be in my prayers. πŸŒ»πŸ™πŸŒΊ

Amanda you can buy CQ10 3 x a day at Walmart it's with the vitamins and minerals. I usually buy it in a 2 months supply box. If I remember right the box is red and gold.

I think it was possibly a menstrual migraine because along with that I've been having the most insane hot flashes with it(like stick your head in the freezer type). It finally broke last night ptl but still taking ES Tylenol 500 mg a.t.c for the next 2 days just to keep it away and at bay. Pleasant dreams. Hope you guys have a light pain night or day.

Thanks Amanda I hope you have a good night's rest. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Amanda I see where I have put this 3 or 4 ways I don't mean to be confusing. I mean CQ 10 and take 3 x a day.I belive that I have been getting the Ultra CQ 10.
