Thanks so much, Cranky and Pita. I've never suffered from any obviously environmental-related symptoms, so this has been weird...but I guess it's to be expected moving from arctic tundra to low desert. The prophylactic ibuprofen seems to be doing its job for now; no vomiting episodes, thank goodness!
Thanks again for the reassurance. I've booked an appointment with a family doctor (and alumnus of my medical school!) here on the first day my insurance kicks in. I'll ask her about some preventative meds, I can usually tell when the headaches will get really bad.
I feel extremely sympathetic for all of you. Migraines are simply awful. Tremendous kudos for all of you for dealing with this on a regular basis...
