Blah! I feel nauseated just thinking about it.
“Jaqueca” is a form of saying “severe headache” in Spanish. If you have known me for sometime then you might have been around me when one of these (a migraine) hit me. Well I’m going to try to keep my dinner down as I explain what these are like.
First – blotchy vision, white spots
Second – sensation of something pushing one of my eyes in to my skull
Third – feeling of nausea and heightened senses (smell, light, etc)
Fourth – throbbing/pulsating feeling in head, dry heaves
Fifth – vomiting
Sixth – relief but a sore head for the rest of the day
*This all progresses over about an hour and a half.
Well that was my day yesterday. They happen without warning probably twice a year. I used to think whenever I thought about past migraines that it would provoke one so I would quickly change my stream of thought to avoid such outcome.
