That was some hours ago and Tony has finally gotten his daily bread/meds 'cause I crashed hard after taking the triptan--which never works fast enough and always seems to knock me out.
My lil fireman...
This is the second time (which I've noticed), that a harsh migraine has followed a fire day.
MmmmmmHMMMMMmm! [A la Florence from the Jeffersons.]
So, while this new likely knowledge is indeed likely power, it's with a sad soul that I likely bid farewell to future fires never to flicker.
And also on the subject of the burn, I coughed some this morning--as is the tradition post volcano-barf and noted the sputum was, greyish.
Reminded me of my ole chimney-sweepin' days.
On another migraine-trigger note: As I said, I've been migraine-free for quite a spell 'til today. I think that's in direct relation to my cutting out alcohol on days when I take tramadol. It seems that those days, all too often are followed by migraines.
(My R/x is quite mini, in the form of a tramadol/paracetamol combo of 37.5mgs/300mgs, 1/day.)
In regards to that booze-tram mix, over this past year I've been trying to take the tramadol less and less, making it as effective as possible when I do take it.
In the past, when on holidays and tramming daily, I've had minimal migraine issues--and holidays up 'til now at least, have meant a glass o' wine a day on average.
So what I see is: that unless I take tram regularly, I will likely have to deal with migraines following winey/trammy lunches--even if it's just a measeley glass and a half, ffs.
Or not drink at all on those occasions.
Or try paracetamol only on those periodic lunches out.
DAMMIT, JIMS, this knowledge biz is maaaaaaddening!!!
But if it helps anyone else out there dealing with the apparent mystery-hell of migraines, I gotsta share. (One in ten suffer from migraines out there, btw.)
And if on the next fire day, ('cause I just know I'll get freaky-cold enough to crack), a migraine follows, I'll note it here.
And then have a mental funeral pyre for the fire itself.
+++vibes to you All,
