    Has your migraine ever felt this BAD?

    It stabs my eye with an ice pick
    to the core of the meatĀ 
    twist and yank
    cracking temples in a vice grip
    hammer through bone and gristle
    take that sharpened fork
    heated sear my tender neckĀ 
    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.
    no. no.
    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.
