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.
