migraine watch

I got sent home from work due to migraine again. Off my food and felt nauseous at lunch. I restarted paramax a couple of weeks ago, which contains the anti-emetic metoclopramide. I've been trying to take this four times a day, but I've sometimes missed it on account of really needing codeine instead and not wanting to take too much paracetamol. (And in any case, it has über-drowsy reaction with codeine).

But I am not sure it is helping anyway. And I was getting akathisia a couple of weeks ago when I had to be sent home the first time, and I appear to be getting drowsiness symptoms. Perhaps I should stop it now and then go back to spot use migraleve, perhaps I should persist properly and try to stop the codeine entirely?

Work have tried to reassure me, and there's some talk of just sending me to a neurologist. I'm sick to worry with it, still. But I've now done what I should have done years ago and self-referred to the City of London Migraine Clinic

I've not sorted my glasses out yet. I might try doing that at weekend if I feel up to it. If not, then soon. I have ordered a thermostatic valve of the sort that I believe ought to fit on my bedroom radiators - it may arrive tomorrow and I will try installing it.

I have people coming round soon. I hopefully am going to be OK with light company and TV watching. I had planned to cook, but I don't think that's likely now.
