{July 15, 2011}   Migraines

     Yesterday – it started shortly after I got on the computer.  I rarely get them, only when my neck is out of wack.  Maybe I slept wrong or twisted too fast.  I don’t know but I know it has to do with my neck.  First goes the vision.  Sometimes some dizziness.  Have to get to a dark quiet place quickly to head it off at the pass or could get nasty.  First thing I do is get as relaxed as I can and close my eyes and hopefully the vision comes back soon.  Sometimes it takes awhile.  Longer than I have time for when I’m working on something.  It didn’t go away fast.  Then comes the headache.  In and out for a while.  Then the nausea.  Most times if I get settled quickly it goes away.  Not this time.  It wanted to linger.  This time I was incapable of doing much at all.  Actually felt like i was going to pass out.  Finally had to lay down.  The headaches are different from normal headaches.  They are in waves like electrical currents and they feel heavy.  Head is too heavy to hold up.  They are very draining.  I was pretty much useless for the whole day.  Still feel somewhat drained even today.  A pinched nerve in my neck or it’s out of wack in some way.  Maybe too much continuous carrying of something or too much lifting.  Those are the things that cause my migraines.  Think my neck got messed up the last time I was hit by a car – suv.  So maybe whiplash can cause migraines.  There are other reasons for migraines but I know mine are caused by neck problems because that’s the only time I have them.  I just take two aspirin and wait it out.  The main thing that works for me is to get my whole body relaxed.  Untighten all muscles. 

Any tips are welcome on this subject.
