Another Nasty Migraine

Sinus infections don't feel good. Migraines hurt. Combining the two is downright misery. Especially if it involves coughing. That just adds to the head pain. Then there is the stuffed up ears adding to the migraine dizziness.  Not sleeping well is bad for migraine sufferers.  So when nighttime coughing severely interrupts your sleep, there are some unpleasant consequences.  Since all of this came right after a very nasty 4 day migraine, I'm plum exhausted. 

All of this started on Saturday, April 26th.  This was the start of the 4 day migraine. So after getting some relief on Tuesday, I woke up Wednesday with what felt like a sinus infection. (I never ran a fever, so it probably wasn't.)  Between the sinus pressure and the coughing, I was not a happy person.  The pressure made my head hurt.  The coughing made my head hurt.  That led to a migraine.  The pressure is gone, but the coughing has been waking me up every night.  The last 2 nights I've actually gone out to try sleeping in the recliner, hoping that the elevation would help.  No dice.  This morning, I am already dizzy and having a hard time focusing on anything.  Looks like a trip to the doctor is in order.

Here I told you about a smoothie I tried in the hopes of helping.  It tasted wonderful, however, I didn't notice any difference.  I'm not saying it doesn't work, it just doesn't work for me.  

Yesterday was so bad that I just wanted to cry.  If I'd had the energy, I probably would have.  I hate feeling like I can't do anything.  I'm worn out from the pain and lack of sleep.

**As I was trying to add images to this post, I noticed that all of my pictures were gone.  I will explain more about that here.  I am trying to replace those that are gone, but I don't remember all of them that are missing.
