Notes

Migraine was gone but I felt like I had been hit by a truck. Every joint in my body hurt. Hurt to move. Hurt to sit. Is this still migraine aura though? Since starting the Topamax my full blown migraines do not last 5 days or more, but now I have odd symptoms like these. It’s possible that they have always existed, but because of the severe pain in my head I have never noticed them before. It is also possible that because of the Topamax that the behavior of my migraines are changing. And it could also just be I’m much older now and I tensed up during the migraine, causing stress on my joints that my body can’t handle anymore. Either of these sound valid in my mind and tells me I need a new plan of self care for after a migraine.

Mood was slightly elevated in the morning but by the end of the day it was slightly down. I assume the slight mood shift is due to the full body pain.
