Well, today I went to the doctor about the headaches that I have been having.  We sat and discussed everything  for close to 45 minutes, which I thought was pretty good for headaches alone.  We have a plan of attack.  She has given me a medicine to take daily to help prevent the migraines.  She also gave me a prescription for another medicine to take when I feel a migraine start.  She gave me a few suggestions of little changes to make in my day to day routine that could help as well.  I will go back to her in 3 months to follow up.  If the medicines are not helping, we will start doing different tests to see if there is something else going on that is causing the headaches.  I have a feeling that the medicine will work because it is the same medicine that my sister takes for her migraines.  Our family is blessed with the migraine gene.  I am pretty sure that my father gets them too, but he doesn't know that they are migraines.  He told me tonight that he had a splitting headache right over his left eye and that it hurt to be in the light.  Sounds like a migraine to me, but I don't know for sure.  Oh well, he wouldn't let that stop him from doing anything anyway.  I am just glad that I have something that I can do to help my own situation.  At least I don't feel so helpless now.
