Changing weather... allergies... pain... migraines

I've never, to the best of my knowledge, been tested for any allergies. One of these days, I should.

I woke up this morning feeling fairly good. On the drive to work, I sensed an aural migraine beginning. Fortunately for me, I rarely get a full-blown migraine headache. 95% of the time it's just the visual disturbances.

I seem to recall feeling this same way last spring, but perhaps a little worse. With cold like symptoms.

After I got to work, I had a bit of a headache. More of a burning pain at the back of my head. I think it's due to the change in weather. It's been warmer lately. The spring aromas are beginning. Maybe I'm allergic to something?

I don't know... but the daily visual disturbances are annoying as hell.

Luckily I work with a few women on my team. Women are like mobile pharmacies. All three of them had different pain medications, and all offered me something. I accepted some kind of green liquid capsule thing (Advil, perhaps?) and was told to drink lots of water with it, or it would give me heartburn.

I still feel a bit of a headache, but that definitely took the edge off the pain. I can deal with this. She offered me another one if I needed it. I thanked her, but passed on it.

I'd better not get any more symptoms of allergies.
