The View From My Window

The world as seen from my window and through my eyes

My head doesn’t like cold weather January 25, 2007

The eyes this morning are the awful gray that says there’s a migraine coming on. I’ve suffered with migraines since I was a teenager, although they seem to be under better control these days. Weather still plays a big part in bringing one on– especially really cold weather.

I’ve been thinking about trying some massage therapy to help me continue to manage these headaches without resorting to medication. Although I take sinus headache pills and the occasional Ibuprofen, I’m not much for using lots of drugs. I’d rather manage my pain through other methods if I can. I read an interesting article this morning about massage therapy and headaches. Seems like a good course to follow. Anyone else try this and want to share what you thought?

    My therapy tends to be simple and possibly not the best option. When I get the “aura” before a migraine, I take a couple of pain relievers and down a cup of coffee or coke. Sometimes it works.

    I’m an ibuprofen sort of girl so I’m probably not much help. My doctor did refer me to a good massage therapist. I’ll get you the info if you want.

    Luckily for me I have a niece who went to massage school. I’m going to ask for the family plan…
