    Oh Shelley, I'm so sorry you've been feeling horrible. :sad: :sad: I haven't been on the site often lately because I to have had a three day Migrane from going back to work. I knew it was going to happen and just went to bed when I got home. I use ice on the back of my head or on the area that hurts sometimes it helps. I know that ice doesn't always help all that use it but it numbs my pain even if it's temporarily. I wish I could be there for you so much and I feel so helpless. It is the most frustrating thing not to know what's causing all those headaches and your dizziness. It also sucks when your stomach gives out too. : :sad: Nothing makes sense to me anymore as I continue to read all the posts. It's so overwhelming and agrevating to see all this suffering. It's even more agrevating to be helpless. I hope you feel better when you get up this morning. Please take care and I'm sending lots and lots of soft hugs. Linda
