Is that true with you? Does your migraine pain trump any other pain your body’s experiencing? Mine does.
For the past few weeks, my right wrist has been aching off and on. I would feel a slight pain only when I performed certain actions, like pressing my manual water bottle pump – you know the blue one; or moving my hand from the computer keys to the mousepad on the laptop – I keep my wrist stationary, which I think may have caused this problem. I’d only think about the pain when I felt it and compared to my migraines it was nothing – until today.
Wow! Talk about aggravating a problem. I can no longer press the water pump with my right hand. I’m a curly girl, so I spray my hair every night with a mixture of bottled water and lavender essential oil, and then seal my ends with conditioner and gel. Tonight I could barely press the lever on the spray bottle. Huh! Had I not ignored the “little” pain I was feeling, my wrist, and all that’s affected by it, might still be fully functional. This means I have to get this checked next week, and in the interim I have to baby my dominant hand. Such a nuisance! I plan to go as soon as Monday.
Have any of you ever had an experience like this? I have a few others that I won’t bore you with :).
