Migraines.

I apparently haz them.

Not like Jason's, thankfully. My dad had migraines from time to time, but I don't think he's had any in a long time, and I never actually knew what caused them.

I wasn't 100% sure. That Saturday 2 weeks ago that I went home, I was nauseous, slightly light sensitive, had a screaming headache and felt barfy. I went home and slept for 6 hours. I figured it was just a flu. The light-sensitivity probably should have been the main clue, but I dismissed it as an over reaction in combination with the other symptoms.

This past Saturday.. yeah. not so much.

This time it was definitely a mini-migraine, and most of it passed in about 30 minutes, probably took a total of about 2 hours. I took Tylenol and Maalox, turned off the TV, closed my eyes and sat still for about 30 minutes. I was determined not to go home sick 2 weekends nearly in a row and stick someone else with my shift. It's just as well, because I'm not 100% I should have driven home the way I was during the worst part of it, when I most wanted to go home.

I don't know if it was dehydration or something else, but Jason seems to think it's that. I felt better after drinking a cup of hot cider (packet style, but hot water and sugar, regardless). I drank a full bottle of water, but it was really the cider that helped the fastest and most, I believe. I don't think it was a low sugar issue, because I don't skip meals, and dinner the previous night-new years eve-was burgers, veggies and dip and chips, and I ate a lot, along with a big ass piece of chocolate cake, and Champagne. Wait, that was Thursday.. Friday.. I did the 4 mile hike and ate half a veggie burger for dinner. And s'mores afterwards. Well, I had 1.5 s'mores, one with chocolate and one with a reese PB cup (OMGYUM).

We'll see if it happens again. If that was a low-grade migraine (and I"m sure it was) I hope to gods I never get any like Jason's. I should email dad and see if he has any ideas on what might have brought his on.
