Melissa, you didn't say how you are feeling. My Niece tells me morning sickness is awful. No throwing up for her. Just a horrible and constant nausea....oh yeah and heartburn from everything!

Thanks for asking Vickie. I'm feeling much better. The nausea got eventually better and the headache also slowly went away. I don't know if it was a migraine or a stomach bug or what. It was really terrible. I didn't tell you all when I was driving to work this morning I also had trouble with the vision in my right eye. I've never had migraines before so I don't know if that was one. It was something though! Thanks for asking.

Wow, Melissa! Thanks for the links. I'm going to read them more carefully, do some research and talk to my Internist about it. Very interesting from what I skimmed in the articles. One says that it may be effective in treating Alzheimer's (what my mother died of) AND obesity! I love learning about new things. I don't think I'll start taking anything new though until after my test.

Wow, you know I just had my first migraine ever. It was the vision disturbance that scared the living daylights out of me. It was my right eye. Fist my vision got a little blurry. Then the lower right corner got wavy and it was moving like how the heat shimmers off of hot pavement during the summer. I was a passenger in the car when it happened. At first I thought the wavy vision was things moving by in the side mirror. Of course, I blocked the mirror and soon realized it was my eye. My Eye Specialist says usually you get the vision disturbance and then the whopper of a headached that can last a couple of days. I hope I never get another.

Vickie, that is EXACTLY what happened to me. The heat waves is EXACTLY how I described what happened to Aaron. That is really freaky. And so crazy that you describe it in exactly the same way. That makes me think that I may have had a migraine!! How bizarre!! Don't some people also feel naseous when they have them?
But my headache went away with only two advil, so that makes me wonder. I mean, it was a few hours, but it did eventually go away kind of on its own.

Most people feel nausea. Are you near your TOM? For a girlie your age, the cycle or stress are usually the causes. You don't have any stress do you?

The Niece has had them for years. She tells me that if you get the ibuprofen in quickly it can shorten the duration. Also she says that caffeine and/or chocolate helps. I told her that it was just an excuse to eat chocolate. I bet you had a migraine.

Wow, that is so crazy. I hope that I don't start getting them a lot, that was really horrible. And yes, you know I am stressed. And TOM will be next week! Maybe the combo was too much?

Did you read what I wrote to Frouf about the Family Circle article I read. Other triggers besides the TOM and stress were red wine (I know you don't drink), chocolate (I don't get it since the Niece says this helps her), and dehydration.

Hmmm...interesting. I woke up with the headache coming on this morning, and then by the time I got to work it was horrible. Strange. The only one I can think would be dehydration--I woke up feeling really thirsty and probably didn't drink enough.
