The Menace of Migraine

It is something of concern.

One morning, when I went to see why she was slow to get up for school, I saw Arrow #3 still lying in bed, holding the side of her head with one hand and clasping her pillow with the other.

“What’s happened?” I remember asking and trying to keep the anxiety cum frustration out of my voice.

She had mumbled something.

I went closer, “WHAT?” I recall feeling my heart rate rise.

“My head hurts”

Now, when your normally chirpy, happy-g0-lucky child tells you that he/she has a headache,  you take note.

With my nursing background, I had sat down beside her and went through some questions.

The long and short of it is that Arrow #3 had migraine that day.

But that was not the end of it. She has since suffered from bouts of it on and off. We still haven’t found the cause but are glad that there is migraine relief available. It’s amazing how debilitating this condition can be.

And frustrating.
