Has your migraine ever felt this BAD?
It stabs my eye with an ice pick
to the core of the meat
twist and yank
cracking temples in a vice grip
hammer through bone and gristle
take that sharpened fork
heated sear my tender neck
claw it off my tightened shoulders
with dull saw my jaw ragged
twist out each tooth, nerves alive
melting into the numb oblivion
sensitive flesh shivers
mouth waters with contained spew
taste of rot and bananas
every little sound so deafening
chews off my ears
is this what death feels like.
just a Migraine
Mine have never been that bad, but I have told people my head would probably feel better if they smacked me in the head with a hammer.
I used to have severe migraines when I was a teenager. The doctor called them adolescent migraines, but I discovered later that they were linked to my poor eyesight. They tapered off significantly after getting glasses. But they were so bad that I couldn't do anything other than lay in bed with the light off for at least two or three hours. I was always baffled when someone would say they have a migraine and yet they were walking around doing their normal routines. With my migraines, I couldn't function at all. I just had to grit my teeth and bear it until it was over. I still go into a panic when I think I feel one coming on.
Mine has felt like my brain was trying to get out through all the exits on my head. I have had them since I was 9 years old . I am almost 57.

Yesterday, I had one of the worst migraines of my life. I was alone, at home, with my eleven month old daughter and I was so sick I was afraid. My head hurt so bad I was dizzy. I couldn't lift my daughter, much less bring her downstairs. I ended up having to call my mom to...
