Hippi, I've had migraine headaches in the past....the kind that are preceded by an aura and visual changes, that are really quite beautiful. I learned that with those, if I took something the instant I had the aura, the headache would not usually become a full blown sit in Bitzi's dark basement with a 2 x 4. If I waited for the pain to hit, thn I would have been calling Bitzi.
The headaches I have now feel much like a migrane, but without the aura and visual images, and, unlike the migraines I have had, they worsen and subside but never go away. They are usually worse in the afternoons and evenings, unlike Carol's morning headaches.
I'm going to discuss them with my rheumy when i see her in a week and a half. Tramadol just doesn't do the job.
