Migraine Jane; Later John. A limerick and more

Updated on October 27, 2012

When your woman in those tight jeans steer

“I got a headache dear, just stay clear”

Why, don't swing your head back

Calm down, zip up your track

Don’t want the Cat in your woman, dear.

What is a migraine?

Migraine as we know is a severe headache which is so horrible to have. Migraine relief is as many times effective with enough quiet rest at home. To see an aura is the first sign of migraine to some, while others feel a slight flicker above the eye or a light feeling of a headache. Migraine is particularly stronger in women during the onset of menopause. Migraines in other people start in their early twenties and before the age of 40. The good news in it for women is that migraine becomes less severe nearing or around the age of 50. Whatever cause it is for a woman, common claims of migraine in women occurs from menstrual cycle, her M cycle. If men are lost for a “Not now” response, I say, man, be wary, there is danger and she could be dangerous. Her M cycle will run you over, so better stay clear, stay out of her way.

What turns your woman into a Catwoman?

This painful migraine headache strikes a blow three times more women than men. If your woman suffers from migraine blows, her visions become disturbed sensitive to light with one eye in pain seeing auras and flicking. She retreats into darkness in broad daylight…total darkness in the bedroom, curtains and door shut; the dark sanctuary is her peace.

She gets irritant of sounds and smells. Hearing your voice and perhaps your smell will irritate her and could mistake you for a prey if you come near. She will hate music too and the screaming or yelling. She’d be feeling sick and nauseous and have no appetite for food whatsoever. For home remedies, some migraine sufferers choose hot ginger tea or really dark coffee, others, a glass of warm milk or vitamin drink or a fruity Gatorade. I would look for a cold orange pop and something sweet to nibble like pretzels coated in white chocolate. She also trembles in pain, feel cold, dizzy spells and all energy just taken away from her. She’d be in tears burying her face in her pillow.

If her wishes are ignored to giving her a total silence and tranquility, she’ll holler to the top of her lungs shaking the walls. She’s going to hiss like Catwoman.


Pounding Pain of a Migraine

When does your migraine occur?

See results

What helps her calm and purr?

A great loving and caring partner who offers to give her a good rub, gently trapping, pressing the knots moving like marbles on her stiff neck and shoulders, down to her back and to the sides of her ribs.

He will tuck her in, end it with a kiss.

She would give back a kiss and thank him and before she falls into the spell effects of a good rub, she would ask dearly: “Do not disturb me, Hon.” That literally means that you have to cook for dinner later and take the dog out.

He will then tip toe from the room, carefully closing the door behind him.

Migraines affect women in many ways as in men. But we ask our partners to be supportive and it surely makes all the difference. Give her all she needs at this stage and she’ll gladly return you “the” favour...purring like a kitty.

      Next time I visit Chinatown, I will look for Chinese herbal meds and the Chinese would probably know which one calms migraine (I hope they don't give me something that looks like chicken feet; that will make me run out of the store, lol). I heard ginger root is good through tea. I like ginger! Have to drink a lot of water too I was told.

      Herbal is always better. In the old days as we know, herbs, fruit and vegetable leaves were used even to heal wounds, bruises, on swellings made from getting "punched on the face", mumps, bad cold, insect bites and even toothaches. I have tried all those in my childhood days. My parents have a garden of fruit bearing trees and vegetable plants like the tiny Moringa leaves (some call it horseradish leaves), water spinach and Malabar spinach, and they do not have to run to a drugstore; first aid was right from their garden. My pa also used green onions as means for rectal suppository when we were kids (you know how kids do not drink a lot of liquid) :)

      Thank you for sharing too, xstatic. It is nice to hear that becoming a vegetarian, getting acupuncture, plus Chinese herbal meds is helping your daughter from killer migraines. I will surely check for Chinese herbal alternatives, eat more green veggies and less frying (hmm, got to work harder on the latter). Cheers!

      My 24 year old daughter has suffered from migraines for several years. She has the kind that puts you to bed after you get sick to your stomach. Now she is and has been a vegetarian for about a year and is getting acupunture treatments and Chinese herbal meds to combat the headaches. The good news is it seems to be working.

      Thanks for sharing this informative hub. Have had migraines about a handful of times in my life and they were a nightmare. Glad it is a thing of the past. Passing this on.

      Wow, you are really lucky then, always exploring. One of my girls don't get the migraine but stomach cramps, yes. I have not tried what she experiences during the M cycle and I really don't know which is more painful. What I know with stomach cramps, one can't get up too and attend school, do housework or even report to work. That's how bad it is. Probably, it is just equivalent to migraines then. And those Migraine over-the-counter medications advertised in their packaging does not work at all.

      Thank you always exploring. Happy to see you!

      I have stopped the migraine prescribed medications, aviannovice for it is only a few tablets and very costly. Even with the drug benefits that will give you back your expenses on this medication, you have to wait for a few more receipts to submit an expense report saving time in your part. It is true and sadly, no over-the-counter medications help, but I still take it because the pain in unbearable. Other times, it is too strong that it makes me run to the have an idea why. I have to press my head onto something harder in bed and there were times I have to tie a necktie around my head like I'm one member of the Japanese drummers banging the Taiko drums with all their might, lol! Yeah, my head is the drum too!

      Thank you aviannovice. I'm always happy to see you.

      I have had friends that used to have horrid migraines. Not even medications could help.

      So men say "back off" too? I've not heard of it before. But I had a boss who suffers from migraine and when it hits him at work, he would crunch his head in the corner of his office. I feel so bad when I see him like that and that time I was still in my 20s so I didn't understand yet how bad this killer headache can be, until I got it myself.

      Funny limerick there, Rick! Thanks!

      Pain so bad that will drive you mad

      throbbing aching explosions had

      loudly head pounds

      Ear splitting sounds

      Come closer now I'll hurt you bad!

      Great job, Tess! This male suffers occasionally from migraines, too. Two words of warning is all that's needed when they occur... "Back Off!" : ) Well done!

      Thank you Mhatter. Stress kills, ughh! I get easy migraines too in a car that brakes suddenly (these bad cab drivers, you know) and especially taking the subway, and the train does a quick halt. Man, I feel that my head is going to roll down the aisle! I have to hold my neck together.

      Good work, all around. I used to get migraines when coming down from stress too fast. Arlene rarely got them. I messaged her a lot. I couldn't keep my hands off her.

      I am a migraine sufferer too. In fact, I have not done much and missed reading hubs here for three straight days. It is really hard when we can't function because we get bedridden of migraine. Thank you and glad you enjoyed the limerick!
