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.
