I wrote a few days ago that I was going to start treating my migraines again and that I’m trying a medicine called Petadolex. Today was my first day taking it. I might not see effects for 3 months, which, in my experience, is typical for migraine preventatives.
I’ve been keeping a headache journal so that I’ll be able to tell if it’s actually helping, especially if my migraine frequency is only reduced by a small percentage. I’m going to be giving weekly updates. I’ll be recording days with headache and cloudy/rainy/snowy days, which are my major migraine trigger. What I hope to see is a decrease in days with headache, regardless of the number of days with bad weather.
December 3 – December 9
Days with headache: 5
Cloudy/snowy/rainy days: 4
