Okay I am again, the "invited" guest with another question. For those of you who don't remember me, I have "ice pick" headaches...not CH's. The wonderful, caring bunch of people here have graciously allowed me to remain, even though mine are a different variation of headache (and I won't go into the argument of whether mine are worse than yours...let's face it - if we are here...we are suffering beyond belief).

My question..I just returned on Monday from a cruise with my mother to Key West & Cozumel. The entire time I was on the ship, I experienced low-level shadows (the type of shadows that I experience with my ice picks). My mom is 76 yrs. old and not in the best of health so I remained silent and just "endured" the shadows by myself. Having survived that experience..I'm now home and am still having this very strange feeling throughout my entire body.

The ship rocked & rolled a little a couple of days, and although it didn't make me actually ill, I did notice it the entire time and wondered if that was making my head act up. Now I feel like I weigh about 300 lbs. and am dizzy, VERY tired physically, and disoriented at times. Is this jet lag? Is this just my body recovering from all the motion from the ship, the plane rides...etc. to get back home? Seems to be a little better today and my head seems to be settling down. Would just like to hear from somebody who possibly experienced some of this and can tell me I'm normal (well...normal as I'll ever be). :-)

Thanks for listening...hope you all have a wonderful PF day.
