Thursday Thought’s: Gaming With Migraine’s!

Lets face it, any level of pain sucks. Some tend to handle it better then others. However, let’s talk about migraine’s! I have, for several years, dealt with a varying degree of headaches to full fledged debilitating migraines. I also, for several years, played Warcraft. At times, these two things do not mix.

A couple times, for up to 4 to 5 days in length, have had my fair share of migraines. One time, a couple years ago, a migraine had me laying in bed for just about 2 weeks. Doctors do not understand why it lasted that long. I wanted to work, and game, and be a part of the community. I just could not sit up for more then twenty minuets.

Migraines for each person who has them effects them differently. For me it was a throbbing at my temples, forehead, and a cracking feeling on the top my skull. Every time I have a migraine, I experience dizziness, sensitivity to light and sound, and am nauseated. Trying to play Warcraft, or any of my various other favorite games, is very hard in that condition.

As for me now, I still get them. They still very in how bad they are and honestly I do not wish this type of pain on anyone. So, if you are suffering from these monsters, see your doctor, get them treated. Then come back to the games that you love.
