Migraine Info

I've been logging my migraines on Google Calendar, taking extensive notes on what I've eaten recently, if I've had any alcohol before, and so on. The recent 27-hour migraine was pretty inspiring for that.

Bad news.

While there are some things I can still do that instantly trigger migraines, like drinking red wine, otherwise my migraines are very regular. Every 4-5 days. No dietary or sleep influences. 4-8 hours each, generally, with the run-up full of mild queasiness.

This means there are no other triggers I can remove to deal with the problem. So yeah, it'll be good to see a doctor again when I'm insured. Also maybe to check in with a cardiologist about the tachycardia, and to see a dentist, and ... other regular maintenance I haven't been doing since leaving CMU. Sigh.

Oh well, hopefully most of this stuff is fixable.
