I'm reading. I have a visual migraine and can't really do much else.

Curious about that. What is a visual migraine? I get monstrous headaches related to cluster and can't do anything when they're really bad.

I see double, even with one eye closed. The first time it happened, it looked like Shreddy (my cat) had four eyes. Spent the night in the ER: no it's not a stroke. Had a CT scan. They couldn't find anything wrong, so they decided it must be a migraine.

I used to get a different kind where I saw pretty rainbow colours.

I don't usually get much of a headache with it, but feel "delicate". Once in a blue moon, I get a monstrous headache with it.

Finally getting a bit of a break with the doxie. He was in much pain this morning so we took him back in to be seen.

Another x-ray showed serious arthritis in his neck with lots of inflamation. The back is better but now the neck is the problem.

So after they probed him from one end to the other, trimmed his nails, gave him 2 injections and the ride home he was pretty exhausted but wired up from all that happened.

Tonight he finally settled in and is sleeping.

Pillows help the pain and of course he's a doxie so there has to be a blanket involved.

Evidently you needed the extra rest. Listen to your body.

I know that delicate feeling. Usually when a headache is getting better, I feel for a while like any disturbance might bring it back.
