Clearly, I got another migraine (I guess that's the best thing to call it) last night. This one started just after 11, began with the vision and tingling symptoms, and I quickly just felt....weird. My right arm felt detached from my body, and I felt a general uneasiness.

I started to get a headache, so I went upstairs to lie down in the dark and quiet. The headache quickly became the worst I have ever had, and lasted for about three hours. It was absolutely miserable.

At one point I decided to go downstairs to get a glass of water so I could take some tylenol, and the light in the living room was nearly blinding.

Mike eventually came upstairs, and by this point I was nearly hysterical, I was in so much pain. All I wanted to do was go to sleep. He gave me some ibuprofin, a benadryl (to knock me out), and put a hot pack on my forehead.

That must have worked, because eventually, I fell asleep.

I feel okay this morning, but I have to go to work, and I'm wary about all the loud noises that working in a cafe comes with. I'll let my boss know when I get there, in case something happens, but that's really the best I can do.

Thanks for the concern, everyone.

You know what would be nice? If my neurologists office stayed open a) until normal hours, and b) until they were supposed to.

Apparently, they've changed their hours recently, so while I normally would have gotten someone, I'm clearly not, and they left ten minutes early. And they have no weekend hours. The operator offered to forward me to the neurologist on call if it were an emergency, but I don't think it really qualifies. Useless.

On an up note, I am going to try to have a nice night hanging out with some work friends and playing silly games. Hopefully my brain holds out.
