Delirious is an understatement.

Today I had another migraine. I'm guessing my 25 minute work out triggered it. Which really sucks because now I'm a little hesitant to work out. This one was bad. Not the pain part, the delirium part. Seriously, for about an hour I felt like I was on an acid trip and I was losing my mind. Does anyone else experience this "phase" in a migraine. Nothing makes sense. My brother in law came over to drop the boys off, and told me something, and all I could say was "nothing you just said makes any sense". Nothing DH was telling me sounded right, so I asked him if he was okay... I thought for a little while maybe everyone was going crazy...

You guys. It really really sucks. All I can do is pray and keep telling myself everything is going to be alright. And of course, once it's passed and I'm thinking straight, I know I was overreacting and that everything was fine except me.

This is particularly disturbing for me because I have always been sharp, very logical and exceptionally in control of my thoughts. I have never taken any sort of mind-altering substance because I fear losing control of my mind. And yet, when these migraines hit, which seems to be happening often as of late, I go through a phase of completely delirium. I even feel embarrassed when I think about it and how nutty I must sound and act.

I am going to schedule an appointment with a chiropractor and hopefully that will help. There has got to be something I can do to fix the problem! I went for 9 years without a migraine... and I don't know what has triggered them again. I'm pretty sure it's my spinal alignment or something of the like. So I guess that's a first step...

Wish me Luck!

Shoot! Good luck. That would be weird. I get random migraines, but I just get the blurry vision and the killer headache. Hope it is all okay soon.

Oh Ackkk hon - I hate those!! I started getting them about your age when I was low on iron or ate anything with nutrasweet - yuck. Hang in there and try ice on the back of your head. Hugs, Sarah

I am new to your blog--found you through Emmy Mom--I get migraines all the time! And I can totally relate to that nothing makes sense. You simply can not think. It's horrible. I hope your doc can find something good that works well for you.

dang! you need to see a doctor...not just a chiro. Tell him exactly what happens. It could be something more than a migrane. Hope you feel better!

Has anything in your diet changed lately? Are you drinking diet soda? Artificial sweeteners can do wierd things to people!
