I know I get very frustrated when I have yet another Migraine, but I get such a potty mouth that I could put a truck driver to shame. There are times I can pretty much control my language, but at other times, I just have a hard time doing that. Maybe I just won't try so hard to curb my naughty words any longer.
Today I read a post by Dr Alexander Mauskop in his Headache News Blog. His post was about how Swearing helps pain, to a point. He said that a study showed that for most people, swearing reduced their pain and increased their heart rate. However, if you frequently swear, you may have less of a pain relieving effect. I guess maybe I am not so alone with my little issue.
I still find it very embarrassing to have such a dirty mouth during these times, but maybe I won't beat myself up as much as I have been if it's also a way that has been helping me. I guess a little bad word usage is ok as long as I don't overdo it and as long as I am careful of where I am and who is around.
I have finally confessed another one of my dark Migraine secrets. Do you use profanity during a Migraine? Do you do anything f'n embarrassing before or during a Migraine?
