I Didn't See This One Coming

Weather changes. Increased pain levels.

A storm front came through last night.
Normally, I keep an eye on the weather and do whatever I can to reduce my controllable migraine triggers, so that a weather change won't take me out.

I didn't see last night's coming.

I had trouble getting to sleep last night. But, that's nothing new.
I had an increase in pain last night. Again, nothing new.
I had a few prodrome symptoms, but they seemed minor and I didn't heed their warning.
About an hour or so after I finally fell asleep, I woke to booming thunder and pain.

Even though the temperature drop and storms have long since passed, the throbbing pain, fatigue, aching, nausea, brain fog, vertigo... they all remain.

I didn't see this one coming.
