my sweetie the scientist reckons my headaches are due to sinus congestion, which tracks with what i know about migraines being caused by blood flow increasing through constricted vessels. if my sinuses are swollen, that might impede the flow of blood leaving the brain; thus, headache. the butterbur, which is a vasodilator, helped, but not enough. so i'm taking sinus meds, have tried a sinus spray and the neti pot. the p.a. i saw the other day seemed more concerned with treating symptoms than addressing causes, which reminded me of the m.d. that put my oldest daughter on amytriplene when she was in high school, which made her a zombie for like six months, when in reality it now seems she was just dehydrated from drinking no water and five cokes a day. duh.
hoping i can make it through the big rawk show at lola's 6th tonight, although i'm not sure i'll be drinking any beers.
