Sick Day

Migraine & TN pain

I stayed home yesterday b/c I woke up with a terrible migraine and trigeminal neuralgia facial pain.  I think I may have a sinus infection and maybe that is triggering the TN pain.  I have been drinking lots of liquids, taking a hot shower, using affrin, and trying to catch up on sleep.  I took a picture of my face- I wanted to see if I could see any inflammation.  I always over analyze - so who knows if there is really any difference though.... I see it though on the picture.  

I was able to go back to sleep which helped tremendously with the migraine, however I did notice the TN pain in my face most of the day.  After I went back to bed I noticed it wasn't the crippling pain associated with the headache- just an  annoying jolt here and there -the worst is/was the pain/pressure in my ear.   

My plan it to take it easy the next couple days.  I an not going to be chewing any gum on wearing eye makeup for a couple days, historically those have been triggers.  Just hoping it doesn't linger or progress to where I need to make a doctors appointment.  

Currently I am feeling really super duper tired.  I was able to sleep through the night last night -and still don't feel rested.  I also have no appetite.  I have no eaten breakfast today and and not hungry at all - but I will force a granola bar so I don't feel even worse. Ugh, I am so crabby.  Looking forward to leaving work and chilling out.  


  1. Sorry you're not feeling well - I have suffered with nerve pain in the past - not in my face but in my back/leg and it is horrible! Feel better.
