PLAN B (or “Don’t Count Your Chickens Before They’ve Hatched A New Migraine.”)

My left eyeball wants to explode. Apparently dev/null was not where the migraine went. It got passed through some store-and-forward system as an encrypted zip file so I couldn’t tell what it was.

We (my headache and I) are taking the ibuprofen/acetaminophen/caffeine approach.

They say pain is all in your head. Don’t I know it.

  1. Hmm, newbie here, but That sounds horribly familiar. You might want to check with your doctor about the possiblity of a sinus infection. The pressure in them can produce affects like those you are describing.

    I speak from long, and painful, experiance.

  2. *raises a glass* Welcome to LJ, Mr. Tayler. Shame about the migrane, but I find that usually flonase, caffiene, and enough painkillers to make Sgt. Schlock woozy are what keeps them at bay for me.

    Fortunate I don’t get ’em often. I’d start to have liver problems.

    1. It’s what’s for dinner


      Tastes like kreelies.


      Yes, I’m actually a vegetarian, and, no, I have no idea what I’m talking about.

  3. My sympathies – I had to bail early from work yesterday because of a sinus migraine. Fortunately, a protracted unconciousness seems to have killed – or at least outlasted – it. I expect a repeated dosage will finish the job tonight.

    Hope you get to feeling better, and soon. And welcome to LJ.

  4. Welcome to LJ 🙂

    I’m sorry to hear your migraine is still going 🙁 I hope you feel better soon!

    Thanks for a great comic, I’m looking forward to more!

  5. Migraine, eh?

    I used to take this fantastic stuff called Migral, until the chemist ceased filling my scripts for the stuff. Anyway, the ingredients for that were: ergotamine tartrate, cyclizine and caffeine. It was without a doubt the best anti-migraine medicine I’ve ever encountered and had been on the market for about thirty years before I found it.

    Unfortunately the World Health Organisation and the Therapeutic Goods Administration have a couple of articles on its long term effects which aren’t that encouraging.

    A damn shame.
