[Owwwwww]

These damn migraines have gotten worse. I was really hoping beginning an exercise program would help relieve the annoyance, but no, I'm getting them almost every single day, and I've been getting more of the more hardcore headaches. Today, for example, I woke up fine, an hour later needed ibuprofen (which worked), and then 2 hours later and five minutes after seeing my less-than-ideal French test score, I got a hardcore migraine. I had a hardcore migraine on Thursday, and I'm pretty sure I had one the week before too. Used to be that I only got them every couple months.

I really don't want to go to the doctor about this. I'm fairly sure they're going to tell me again that there's nothing to be done. I have people praying for my migraine relief, I'm trying to take it easier this semester and not let myself worry so much about school, and I'm trying to be healthier with diet and exercise, but no avail. It's all gotten worse. I think this may be the thorn in my side, and I have to confess, I think I may lose it. If they were just periodic headaches, I could deal with it, but I get them almost every single day. Ibuprofen used to work, but it's definitely losing its effect. Tylenol hasn't worked for years, and Excedrine migraine only works for a couple hours.

I need to just suck it up and go to the doctor, don't I? Ugh.

Sorry if you're not a fan of complaint posts. I needed that off my chest.

When conventional medicine fails, explore alternative (the better bet in my opinion anyway). I stumbled on this site and thought I'd give it to you to look over. You may want to research the group, and the herbs that they list to make sure that this is a common opinion among practicers of alternative medicine. Hope this helps a little bit.
