Dealing with epilepsy

Morning headaches

A couple of days ago, I woke up with an incredibly painful headache. I wouldn’t categorize it as an “ice pick” headache because it lasted about 2 days.

It’s not a migraine, although, after googling around for causes, I was convinced that it was.

I wasn’t hung over either :).

What started as a splitting headache over my forehead (frontal lobes of the brain) slowly moved and grew. By the end of the day, my whole head was pounding, as if my heart was beating inside it.

The next day, from time to time, the headache moved to different parts of my head, but nothing as painful as before.

I imagined that it might be an aura, but, really, 2 days?!? It was just a headache, most likely caused by the increase in temperature here (now: 30 degrees Celsius = 87 degrees Fahrenheit) and the increase in humidity (up to around 60% today).

Took it easy, although my days was full of…things.
