I have been asked by my neurologist to scale my headaches from 0 to 10 while I come off caffeine, with 0 being no headache whatsoever and 10 being the worst of my headaches. I am up to day 54 and all is going really well, I have even reached up to 30% headache free, i.e. my headache tablets are actually working for the first time. It is bliss on the headache free days for the first time in my life. I am on a 3 month strategy … a man with a plan.
However this week something has gone horribly wrong from Sunday with a headache rating of 4, Monday 4, Tuesday 2, Wednesday 9, Thursday 9, Friday 7. I thought I had slipped up and done something I shouldn’t have done. My headaches were getting as bad as they have ever been. It wasn’t until I started analysing everything I was eating, doing and not doing that I suddenly realised I just had a seasonal head cold. Good luck with all my friends who suffer colds this time of year.
