I woke up with a pounding headache and riotous nausea at 5:45 am. I tried to eat some cheerios (a far cry from my usual breakfast of eggs, cheese, and tea), and I couldn’t even keep the bland cereal down.
So instead of heading to the train station after that, I crawled back into bed, dealing with alternating crippling nausea, loud headaches, extreme noise and light sensitivity, this weird light halo thing was around everything, and the occasional vomiting.
Already in my second week of grad school, and I missed two classes. Yay.
So this was most of my day.
And then, we had the bright idea to call my dad. Cause he has migraines pretty routinely, and this sounded a bit like a migraine.
Turns out I have ALL THE SYMPTOMS!
So I tried his cure. Two cups of coffee and two advil.
And it worked.
Well, I still have the pounding headache, but all the symptoms are gone.
