Also, btw, and I know this sounds out of the box, but I've found that sucking on a popsicle helps with migraines. I guess it kind of makes sense since there are nerves that go directly to the head- hence brain freeze- but it really has helped me, just try to avoid the brain freeze;)

I go through the same thing. My theory is that after experiencing all that pain, our brain needs to kind of rest by blocking out anything that uses energy or feeling what the body is going through, I think it is a reaction to trauma. I find that with rest it does get improved. Also it helps to watch chick flicks or romantic comedies or anything that is a happy no drama tv show or movie. I hope you kick this thing. Btw there are birth controls that make it so that you only get your period every three months, I found that that really helped! Much luck to you!!

I find when I’m in a flare I can’t concentrate at all, even something as simple as writing a shopping list! There’s no point in me trying because it’s hopeless so I just kinda go with the flo. And I get totally exhausted after the first day of horrible pain so yes it takes awhile even after the flare up to get physically and mentally recovered!! This illness is relentless!
