Let me explain for those who don't have the pleasure of experiencing this. I think that I only know one Migraineur besides myself that gets this and that is my friend Heather, (please visit her blog The Journey of a Migraineur )
Ok so Migraine euphoria aka waiting for the other shoe to drop. It's when a couple days before a horrible migraine, I get extremely happy, euphoric, crazy, etc. I feel like jumping out of my skin, act like a freak, talk a mile a minute (ok, well that's normal), clean, clean, clean - jump around, dance and feel like my skin is buzzing.
This is both a blessing and a curse.
It reminds me of the days of "what the hell is a migraine??" Back before my life was turned inside out by this disease that I now feel I have to watch everything I do for the potential ramifications. I feel carefree and happy.
The down side is - this usually means a big mother is on the horizon. I very rarely get this way, but when I do - a big one is lurking around the corner.
So what do I do? Enjoy it? Take it for what it is? Analyze every second of it, waiting for it to stop and the pain to begin?
I used to almost force myself into a depression over it, knowing this is not a good sign. Now, this time around, I've had this feeling for 3 days. Maybe it's just that I am in a good place, I've been migraine free for I think 17 days now - (woohoo!!!). Maybe it's just that I'm finally feeling good.....am I waiting for something that won't come?
My usual prodrome protocol is nausea or heartburn, increased visual floaters, tinnitus, smells, sometimes hearing things. I have had none of this, well a little tinnitus, but that is about it. So am I over reacting? I don't know.
I've decided to just ride it out and enjoy feeling good.
At the first sight of pain though - I am popping a Frova as fast as I can get it out of it's stupid packaging!
Till then - Take care of yourself and be kind to each other.
