Migraine
Migraine | Oliver Sacks
24 posts | 6 read | 1 reading | 18 to read
The many manifestations of migraine can vary dramatically from one patient to another, even within the same patient at different times. Among the most compelling and perplexing of these symptoms are the strange visual hallucinations and distortions of space, time, and body image which migraineurs sometimes experience. Portrayals of these uncanny states have found their way into many works of art, from the heavenly visions of Hildegard von Bingen to Alice in Wonderland. Dr. Oliver Sacks argues that migraine cannot be understood simply as an illness, but must be viewed as a complex condition with a unique role to play in each individual's life.

Hi Litsy friends—quick non-book-related post! This is my friend Amber & her wife Elizabeth—two of my closest friends & also two of the most generous & caring people I know. Amber suffers from occipital neuralgia (chronic migraines, vertigo, nausea, light sensitivity). Recently all treatment that had helped stopped working. She‘s an ideal candidate for a surgery to cure her—with a 90% success rate—but insurance won‘t cover it.
#litsymigraineclub

BarbaraJean My husband organized a GoFundMe to raise funds for the surgery & help Amber get her life back. Please check it out & consider helping however you are able (give, share, pray, send good thoughts—any/all are appreciated!). https://www.gofundme.com/f/painlevel10 (edited) 3y
Crazeedi I will do what I can, prayers especially for this dear friend 3y
BarbaraJean @Crazeedi Thank you so much! 💜 They are so thankful for the prayers and support. 3y

Not book related..

As I know, many of you have headache or migraine, I wanted to show you this.

I've downloaded to app on left. It's really great. It counts your hours of sleep and you can tell the app, everything about your pain. Where is focused, if you took medicine, if you have other pains etc. The one on the right seems to be an equal app in English.

Stay healthy Littens.

P.s. my head burns today...

I've been battling a headache that has made the leap to migraine. I'm going on day 5 of head pain. I've gotten very little reading done. Audiobooks don't work for me when I have a migraine because I prefer to sleep and I hate missing part of my audiobooks. Hopefully this will pass today, if not doctor tomorrow.

Please pardon the rant...I appear to be in an epic book slump, which I'm blaming on the last four weeks of near constant migraine. I'm trying to just read a chapter a day of Persuasion for the buddy read, and while Six Four is ok, not a lot is happening and it is very easy to put down and not pick back up. I've only finished 1 audiobook (hated it), 1 comic (not impressed), and 4 kids books this month. I want something unputdownable! 😭😭😭

My_novel_obsession I was trying to think of a book to recommend that was unputdownable...I think you need a book that you can just sink into...like anything by Kent Haruf or Ivan Doig or either books by Anthony Marra - A Constellation of Vital Phenomena or The Tsar of Love and Techno. The writing will suck you in. Or something that keeps you going because you just have to find out what's going on - The Last One by Alexandrea Oliva 6y
DGRachel @Anovelobsession Thank you for the recommendations! I read The Last One last year. I'm going to give the Marra a shot, since my library had the eBook available for instant download. 6y

A few of us have noticed that Litsy has a lot of migraneurs (migraine sufferers) among its members. I brainstormed a few hashtags for us to use. What others have I missed? Tagging a few folks I remember having migraines recently.

BestOfFates I hate when that happens - though now I find audiobooks work bc can chill in a dark room and listen! 6y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @BestOfFates I'll have to try that. Mostly I just have to sleep when the vertigo hits. 6y
Gezemice I have headaches too but I find diet helps. Still, this seems like a book that would give me a migraine... 6y

BarbaraTheBibliophage @Gezemice Yea I follow a specific migraine-preventing (mostly) diet as well. But sometimes it's unavoidable! 6y
Gezemice Yeah, it is not perfect, unfortunately. :( 6y
BestOfFates @BarbaraTheBibliophage Ah, I usually can't sleep so audiobooks have been a godsend! 6y
Bibliogeekery I'm a chronic migraine sufferer and have had a bad one for almost two weeks now. Feeling this one so hard! 🤕 6y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Bibliogeekery I'm sorry for your pain. Migraine just sucks! 6y
Bibliogeekery @BarbaraTheBibliophage Thank you! They really do! 6y
