LIKE many people, I am afflicted by the occasional migraine. As I write this I can feel the Naramig kicking in to try to stave off an attack.
I’ve been trying to work out if there’s a trigger: the usual suspects are chocolate, red wine and cheese – none of which applies to my current predicament.
Today I came up with a new possibility: breathing helium.
When I suggested this to Carolyn she gave me a withering look and asked if I had been doing it to amuse the children, or just to amuse myself? In my defence, there was a child present, though he seemed singularly unimpressed.
Anyway, since I removed the nozzle from my mouth I’ve been detecting the onset of the familiar symptoms. But I don’t think I’ll suggest my latest “trigger” theory to my GP.
