Just a 'hello' post. I'm whistlemytune, 31 from Kent UK. I'm a nurse, and live with my husband and our two gorgeous children.
I joined up today because I've noticed my migraines become more frequent. In the last year, I've had 4 or 5 (not entirely sure - I may start charting them), and 3 of those have been at work.
Yesterday was a particularly busy day on my ward and I was in the middle of a drug round when I noticed the blind spots (aura). I quickly had to tell the nurse in charge and take painkillers. Really not an ideal time at all! I had to abandon my day at work (luckily I only had about 1.5hrs left of my shift), and leave for bed.
Because they're getting more frequent, I'm thinking of going to my doctor about it... though I'm not sure what they'll do. My migraines aren't close together at all, but the fact that they're getting more frequent may need to just be mentioned. Don't know. The only medication I'm on at the moment is citalopram 20mg for depression, which does help my depression for sure.
Anyway, I waffled on! Thanks for reading.
