I've been doing OK recently. Think I had a migraine on Saturday night. We had a babysitter and I was excited about our evening out, and looking forward to a nice meal and even a glass of wine.
As we sat down in the restaurant I hit what I can only describe as a wall of utter misery - I didn't want to be there, I didn't want anything on the menu, I couldn't face any wine, I felt like crying and I felt really awful. I was annoyed with myself & dragged myself out of it, trying to make small talk. I drank my orange juice and ate my meal, which tasted of nothing (although I'm sure it was actually very tasty in non-migraine world). Then I got the wave of nausea and the chatter in the restaurant got unbearably loud, and I started to look for an escape route, thinking I might pass out. The thumping headache started up, and I rummaged for some pills in my handbag, whilst my other half dealt with the bill and told the waitress that we really didn't want anything else.
Fifteen minutes later, on the bus home, it all went away, except for the dizziness and the Alice in Wonderland syndrome (my fingers seemed massive and as if they belonged to someone else). I might as well have had a whole bottle of wine because that's how it felt - straight to "hungover".
All I can think is that the headache was on the opposite side to usual, and the tiny bit of botox I had there 2 months ago (as opposed to the massive bit they put in the other side) had really worked, along with a bit of ibuprofen. I was right as rain yesterday too. It could have been much worse.
