Don’t migraine and drive

I started to get a migraine after I taught my North Van yoga class this morning. Anyone who’s ever had a migraine knows that when you get the blurred vision at the start of it, all you want to do is get home to bed and turn out all the lights and somehow destroy the sun. So against my better judgement I drove home. It was all good until I tried to merge onto the Lions gate bridge and couldn’t tell which lanes were open to Southbound traffic. My migraine vision saw 3 red X’s and 3 green x’s… but I know there are only three lanes… so I just chose one and hoped for the best. It all worked out, but I wouldn’t recomend driving with migraine… next time I’ll wait till the vision returns.

    Ouch Tammy, so sorry to hear you suffer from migraines as well. I guess I’m lucky that I’ve never had to deal with auras. I couldn’t imagine how scary the blurry vision might be or the light shows I hear many migraineurs with aura describe.I’m glad to hear you made it home safely =) I do have the typical sensitivities to light so, when I was working full-time, there were times I’d drive home in the evening wearing sunglasses. Not very safe, and I don’t recommend it, but there are times when the pain is so bad you can’t think of anything except getting home and crawling into bed.

    I used to drive with migraines. Ditto on it not being a good idea. I rear-ended the car in front of me one time. I just couldn’t see it. Don’t do it again. Tsk tsk.
