My migraine brain is strange and frustratingly emotional. One aspect of this is state I now dub “pudding hysteria.”
Sometimes after a migraine when I am still feeling terrible I have incredible cravings for particular foods that I do not have in my house, usually dessert. Today I became so upset at not having butterscotch pudding that I had a bit of a breakdown. After a few minutes of sobbing, I realized how ridiculous it was to be crying over a lack of pudding and I started laughing while still dealing with all the snot and tears. Pudding hysteria, ladies and gentlemen – a little known, but serious symptom of migraine!
