Over on Facebook I fell for one of those "7 books I love, day N" memes. The seven were:  read more ...

I talked here before about using my friend's sumatriptan injector and how successful it was. She actually gave me two more so when the migs flared up again I used one and, although it wasn't as quick as the first time, the whole episode last only a couple of hours rather than the usual ten to eighteen.  read more ...

As my last post said I was, at that point four weeks migraine free. That continued for seven weeks and then, seven weeks to the day after my last migraine, I had another one.  read more ...

I've just wasted a couple of hours banging my head against the wall trying to track down an obscure issue in an old PHP script. Essentially this script appended text to a file in /tmp - it was to provide me with some debug.  read more ...

You'll remember that my last post was about using injectable sumatriptan to rid me of a migraine. That was four weeks and a day ago. Since then I've been completely migraine free despite being exposed to various things which would in the past be likely triggers. Beth and I have speculated as to why this has happened and the shortlist looks like this (in order of likelihood):  read more ...

As I've mentioned here many times migraines are the biggest problem for me post stroke other than the epilepsy. The most effective drug for these is a triptan. I started on Maxalt Melt (rizatriptan which you place under your tongue) but when the local CCG were tightening their belts they made my GP switch me to sumatriptan (which is now off patent so a lot cheaper).  read more ...

When I last upgraded the fonts used on my pages I said that I was looking to the New Yorker web site for inspiration. I found a good font for the body text but struggled to find a suitable free substiture for their all caps headline font which is their own design NY Irvin and was created by Rea Irvin, the first art editor of the magazine.  read more ...

Today I moved onto phase two of the great Keppra switchover having been on full dose for a week. Moving to Keppra has been relatively painless, certainly compared to Epilim where every increase in dose would leave me like a zombie for a couple of weeks. With Keppra I had one bad day two days after going to 750mg and 1000mg a day but that was it.  read more ...
