I need a pep-talk. I was diagnosed with migraine when I was 12 or so, but we (my mom and I) opted against medicine as it wasn't all that often and we thought it was better for me to just stay home and sleep it off.
I have been migraine-free for a few years, albeit not aura-free, so I guess you can say that I've been having pain-free migraines. But lately I've been having more pain that usual, with light sensitivity and all that jazz. I'm also fairly active; 4 courses at uni instead of one, lectures 5 days a week, the paper and flying back and from to Copenhagen to be with my husband whenever I can. So... Something has to be done.
I found a pill based on NSAIDs when we were on England last summer which helps both with normal headaches as well as migraines. I brought one packet with me back, and later ordered one from a UK online-pharmacy. I ordered 3 new packs last weekend as the pain has increased, I'm back at uni and I can't have any days off. It was stopped in customs yesterday and there's no new update. I'm not afraid I won't get the pills - I'm not sure if I'm really allowed to import them, even though they are over-the-counter-drugs. I mean, one packet went through without any problems, but three might be pushing my luck.
Now, I had to stay home today due to pain and slept most of the day away. I got up around noon and made my 4pm lecture, although I feeling kinda icky. I'm thinking I should just pull myself together and book a doctor's appointment tomorrow. The problem is that I'm very afraid of doctors and am scared I'll be laughed at...
