You might be wondering why I haven’t updated my blog since last Monday’s post. My blogging routine is to publish two or three posts per week, sometimes more than that if time permits. But I’ve had a headache attack for four days straight that’s been keeping me from blogging and staying up late. Monday was the worst cos I had to call the office and informed that I would come late due to a terrible headache. I went out and worked despite of this cos staying at home would only make me feel sick. I thought I’d caught colds and flu the following days but luckily, it was just slight headaches. Although bearable, the annoyance it caused was uncomfortable and distracting that I couldn’t focus on what I was doing.
I know for a fact that it’s not a migraine headache because I haven’t experience nausea, vomiting and other sensitivities at the time of the attack. I couldn’t exactly tell how and what triggered my headache but I know I am sensitive to smoke and odors. But hubby doesn’t smoke and we both don’t wear perfumes. The only place I could smell fragrances and smoke is in public places like at the bus stop and malls. Medicines help alleviate the pain but I feel dizzy when I take twice a day. In Davao, I used to let my sister massage the back of my head and neck and the headache would be gone fast. I did ask hubby to massage me once but he was like massaging a baby, afraid the skin might be stripped off the body.
It’s hard to tell what causes me headaches but one thing I can say for now – I’m glad it’s over! Until then, have a nice weekend everyone.
