This morning, Weez and I went for a gorgeous, brisk, fall run. We had a great breakfast and hydrated well beforehand, but something odd happened while I was running.
With only a few miles to go from home, I started to see auras (the first warning sign of a full blown migraine). I immediately knew what was going to happen, so I booked it home as quick as I could, but there was nothing I could do but grit through the rest of the morning.
Unfortunately when I get migraines, it’s pretty gnarly. Nausea (sometimes vomiting), auras, sensitivity to light and sound, intense head pain. I’ve seen several doctors about this and have a few prescriptions to lighten the blow, but it’s still rough. And by rough, I mean, incapacitated for 2-4 hours/fetal position/hangin’ near the toilet.
Fortunately I only get migraines a handful of times per year, but what’s most odd, is that the past 3 that I’ve gotten have ALL started while running. 3 in the past 2 months, all while running.
Does anyone know anything about this? Have you gotten migraines while running before? I’m going to speak with a doctor about this ASAP, but if any of my readers have insight, I’m all ears.
I’m worried that one day, I’ll be running a marathon and one will hit. I’m worried that one day, I’ll be running trails hours from home and one will hit. That’s a scary thought.
But I’m all good now! And psyched to have some friends over to watch football. I love hosting. It’s my fav. Have a great Sunday night!
