thanks for the support!

April 24th, 2006 at 08:03 am

Thanks for all of your migraine support! I am going back to the chiropractor tonight. I am considering making an appt with a medical doctor. The weirdest thing about this is that it was affecting the left side of my head, neck and shoulder, and now that's fine and it's affecting my right side. It makes no sense to me, but maybe my chiropractor can get it all sorted out.

Last night I tried tennis balls under my neck, heat, cold, massage, pressure points, stretching, everything. It didn't do much. I had a massage and acupuncture on Friday night and that helped a lot. I can't wait for my appt tonight.

Band is over! Thank God! I am so glad. I can hardly believe that I made it through.

Yesterday we went to Target and spent $117 on groceries, $10 on cat litter, and $67 on miscellaneous other stuff (including a new ergonomic memory foam pillow for me). I also had two rolls of film developed, $15 (expensive!!). We spent way more than was planned, but I still think I can make my goal this month. My Groceries/Target/Eating Out goal was $300, and I'm currently at $294.

My first roll of 35mm photos turned out fairly well. There are a few that I am rather proud of! I need to work on lighting, because several of them are dark. I think I can scan them in and fix them up a bit with Photoshop. All in all, I'm pleased with my camera purchase, and I can't wait to take more photos. Smile My head and neck just need to cooperate!

    I hope the foam pillow helps. It really stinks when you are in pain. I hope the chiropracter is of help.

    I hope the pillow helps too. I know that when I don't sleep well - that is, when I am physically sleeping in a weird position - it can set off neck pain that goes straight to a migraine. I have one of those pillows, and the neck support can be helpful.

    I had two massages in one week a couple weeks back - I just couldn't break the cycle I was in. The second one helped get the thing to start breaking. I hope your appt. tonight works for you.

    I too have a Memory foam pillow by Temperpedic. It is my second one. I left one in a hotel and they "couldn't find it".

    I actually have two memory foam pillows, I bought a cheaper brand at Bed, Bath and Beyond that is a little bigger, but softer and my Temperpedic is more firm, but smaller. I use whichever one feels best when I have a migraine and use my Temperpedic for sleep every night.
