FROM OUR EXPERTS
What do you think is the cause of waking up each morning with a migraine on my right side? I sleep on either side with one leg straight and one knee up (taught to me by a doctor).
An Eye Physician and Surgeon is suggesting I go to a sleep clinic because my husband says I snore softly but do not wake up.
Thank you for your insights. Nancy .
A sleep study isn't a bad idea. Snoring might indicate sleep apnea.
When people wake with a Migraine, sleep issues are the most common trigger. It can be too much sleep, too little sleep, interrupted sleep, an irregular sleep schedule, or poor quality sleep. Take a look at our video Migraines, Headaches, and Sleep . It's recommended that Migraineurs go to bed and get up at the same time every day, including weekends and holidays.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert

We had about 12 inches of snow or more and five foot snow drifts. The super cold air is coming down from Canada now. ( I don't know how you take that cold, cold air Lene! ) Wind chill to be -23 in the morning.
We bellied out our Arctic Cat today, so we started up the old backhoe and made one trip down the drive and back. The steering on the backhoe is messed up now, so we put it back in the out building and used the Arctic Cat to clean up the mess. That took a while, as our driveway is a quarter of a mile long.
I decided my husband had been out there long enough, so I grabbed a snow shovel and started in on a couple of five foot drifts. Then I carried in some fire wood. That finally got me. I have taken my Tramadol and my Soma and feel better now. I know I shouldn't do these kind of things, but it was a bit of an emergency.
Hope everyone is safe and warm. This was a big, bad blizzard and affected a lot of people.
