Okay, so I wasn’t kidding about a headache yesterday. About 2:30, I was just sitting at my desk when my stomach kinda sank and I got this SUPER dizzy feeling, like I wasn’t even sure if I could move if I wanted to. I tried to keep working, and at about 3:00, I got up and turned off the lights because my eyes were too sensitive. Just moving around was making me nausuas (?sp?), so I sat back down. By 3:30, I couldn’t move, my head was pounding so bad, and my equilibrium was way off - I was having to hold onto things while I walked. So I called E and told him to come and get me - he was there by 3:50, and I slowly made my way to the car and the motion of the car moving was so bad that I had to close my eyes all of the way home. We got home and I went STRAIGHT to bed (about 4:10).

I just now woke up. And its still not all of the way gone - tingly face, pulsing vein in the corner of my eye, weird feeling in my tummy - part of which could be hunger since I didn’t eat dinner. I can’t tell if its just the after-effects of a bad migraine (cuz I’ve never had one that lasted this long), or if its going to be tolerable for most of the day but kill me by the afternoon? I took Advil Migrane at 8:30 yesterday morning, and I’m guessing that by 3, it was wearing off - but you aren’t supposed to take it more than once a day. I suppose I could wait until 10 or so today to take it, then maybe it won’t wear off before work is over.

*sigh* I don’t know what to do.
