I get the visual disturbances without the pain afterwards, just a bit of nausea. I get them about 2-3 times a month, usually when I'm tired or hungry. I was referred to a consultant and had an MRI scan which was clear. The consultant didn't seem too concerned about them and said it was up to me whether I wanted to take medication to try and stop them - apparently a short course of medication is sometimes enough to 'flick a switch' that stops them (it sounded a bit more scientific the way he put it...) So I went on medication without realising it was beta blockers and the effect on my running was awful - like running through treacle every time - so I decided to stop. I don't drive otherwise I'd be more concerned about them - they're annoying but bearable.
Morning all! Blimey - lots of exciting news round here!
Sorry to hear about Mrs Apps being made redundant, but how exciting to think of the possibilities. My contract ends in January so I could be out of work by then - trying to follow your example and think positively, and also considering relocating...
Yeo - exciting news! Sounds like a great opportunity to be nearer the family. I did voluntary work at Keele University many years ago and so spent a bit of time in N-u-L.
SL - hope your toe is ok, you poor thing.
hft - have you taken the 205 out for a test drive yet? I haven't used my Garmin since VLM but think it's time to dust it off again - I do find it very motivating, otherwise I just potter along at the same old pace all the time.
Cinders - sounds like a great evening! And I hope you have a fab holiday
I've been suffering a bit with migraines this week and the weather really isn't helping. 31c in London today - I think I'll be staying in the shade!!
