Comments: Take Two Bayer and Call Me in the Morning

Argh. That sounds awful. Hopefully, you don't get these too often. But in case of vomiting emergencies, I always carry some plastic grocery bags in my car...close at hand. (I went through a period of time where vomiting became a regular hazard. Long story, not for now.) Also, I've found that ginger...in almost any form (candied, candies, or juice)... relieves nausea better than anything else. I don't know if it would help in your situation, but might be worth carrying some ginger chews with you just in case.

Hope you are feeling better.

Gaah! Migraines! My husband gets them, though fortunately as he has gotten older they have diminished. The daughter and youngest son also get them, so I feel for you! I know they are miserable.

We have found that for our family, Excedrin Migraine or Extra Strength Excedrin work very well if they are taken soon enough. (And of course, a dark room, a bucket, and sleep!)

DDP- I usually have them in the car, plastic bags, but I'd just cleaned my car and it was CLEAN. No bag... it would have seriously sucked to have had to have thrown up in my lunch box. My Mom has some sort of ginger candies I thinks she says really works. I need those in my stash. The headache went away, but it took 2 days this time for the nausea to subside.

Peggy- My Mom has the Excedrin! I took it the one time I suddenly went blind in one eye. No kidding, I was standing in her kitchen and suddenly I was dark black blind in one eye, no pain, just blind. She told me it was another form of migraine, had me take an Excedrin and it went away! Craziest thing!

Bou: Going blind in one eye (or both) would freak the living hell out of me!
