Sensitivity 1 Paul 0

Friday, May 21, 2004

The title says it all. Some cluster sufferers, like myself, have days where light and touch cause pain. Similar to a migraine. Having both in my life I can this is worse, at least for me. I covered myself in icepacks and tried to get sleep. I never seem to get a deep sleep anymore. I may be out but I can't quite seem to get a restful night. I think Mindy was upset with me this morning. Everything just hurt. All my senses seemed became hypersensitive all at once. I understand its rare for those symptoms in a cluster patient but far from unheard of. I even missed my moms' 29th(again;) birthday. I'll try to visit as soon as I can.
My blog seems to be my outlet lately. Hopefully I can get back to where I was programming wise, and feel a little more useful. G'Night

Its hard for a someone who suffers from migraines to get sleep. The electrical storm in their head causes them to not get the REM they need. I have to always rely on some sleep med (i.e. ambien) to help me sleep. Sometimes that doesnt help. I do know that it is essential to us who suffer, to get enough sleep.

A proper nights sleep is paramount for dealing with the pain. For myself little or restless sleep makes the pain seem more intense as the body cannot recover fully from previous attacks.
