Headaches During Heatwaves
Anyone who lives in the UK will be able to tell you we are currently experiencing a bit of a heatwave.
I have never been the kind of person who copes well in the heat. I have very fair skin, I have never had a tan, and I burn instantly even in mild weather. So I’m the kind of person who avoids sun and loathes heatwaves – I know I’m in a minority on my sun opinions.
Yesterday I woke up to a boiling hot bedroom and a terrible migraine which I suffered from for the rest of the day. For hours nothing seemed to relieve the horrible ache, it was awful. The ironic thing is, is that my epilepsy medication is Topamax which is also used as treatment for people with migraines…it didn’t help me yesterday!
The two unfortunate things about yesterday were that:
- It was Father’s day and I ended up making my dad worried about my health.
- I was asked to look after my baby nephew who also wasn’t enjoying the heat, and then decided to cry for ages – which just made my headache worse! 😥
It eventually passed after I drank plently of water and slept most of the day away. Thankfully I’m back to my normal self today.
although I was pretty miserable yesterday as everyone else was out enjoying the sunshine and having barbecue’s and stuff, I’m glad to say that I didn’t have any aura’s, so I am extremely grateful for that.
Today I’ve stayed in the shade and respected the 30 degree heat.
Hope you’re all enjoying the warmer weather.
