Migraine hangover is totally a thing. It’s totally a thing I’m dealing with today.
Last night I had an unexpected restaurant dinner, because my sweet husband forgot to inform me until about 3pm that there was a Masonic thing followed by dinner and he wanted me to come. So I went, and I did my best on choosing food, but I may have opted for a couple of glasses of Prosecco, and so today I am paying for it. I woke up around 4am and fumbled around in the medicine cabinet looking for imitrex and since it was dark I took the 50mg by accident instead of the 100mg, so migraine was in full force still when I woke up. Shot a nasal imitrex up my nose and the headache is gone but the migraine hangover remains.
Shoulders are sore, neck aches, feeling a bit grainy and tired and stupid and cranky. That’s a migraine hangover for me.
On the other hand, I’m still dropping. This morning’s weigh in, which I didn’t want to do after eating at a restaurant last night, was 190.5. Four down, four to go. I’m developing a theory about the difference in pounds my body holds on to based on unusual foods, like baked goods which I almost never eat except in usual situations, because those seem to drop off really quickly when I return to normal eating. But of course I don’t want to rely on this knowledge to manage my weight. Just an interesting observation. To me.
I’ve also started qualifying my statements even more today because I’m getting really sick of seeing people post things like, “This thing I do is the best way to do X thing in the whole world and totally better than any other way of doing it!” while I read it and think, “That sounds like hell to me, maybe you ought to modify it to ‘This thing I do is the best way to do X thing FOR ME, ‘ ya self-centered idiot.”
Migraine hangover makes me a bit judgy, apparently.
