They used to be a regular thing. I think it’s flaring up from stress at work/home. I was prescribed medicine for it when I studied in Mexico, but I think it was just a sedative. It wasn’t something that is used in the US. I also have to be in complete darkness and silence until it passes. This last migraine lasted for a couple days, but I’m relieved that it’s finally gone.
I had some head trauma incidents and I never really got a scan of my head to make sure things were fine. Doctor always told me it was a tension headache despite me explaining that the pain starts from where I’ve banged my head multiple times.
Regarding your story, what genre is it and where does it take place again? Is it an apocalyptic setting?
