CMCO Day 133 ~ Tuesday, 20 October 2020

CMCO means more baking and cooking at home, especially when there’s someone at home who’s always raring to try out new recipes!

Today Sherilyn made Naan bread from scratch to make Naan pizza and cheese Naan for lunch. She made a batch of pan-fried Naan last Saturday (without any oil) and the Naan turned out really well – like those from Indian restaurants! We all loved it, including low-carb moi and the persnickety matriarch who can be very critical on food cooked by other people!  🤫

Our in-house teenage chef also marinated some boneless organic Pineapple chicken thighs to make chicken satay for dinner tomorrow. And she did all these while listening to her Math teacher on loud speaker mode on the phone in the wet kitchen during online class 🤓

After bringing Sherilyn to the gadgets and accessories shop to get new earphones (for online classes), we collected Nasi Hujan Panas and chicken rendang from hubby’s shop. Dinner is now settled as well.

Nasi Hujan Panas (Rainbow Ghee Rice cooked with spices), chicken drumstick rendang, cili fish, stir-fried assorted vegetables and mushrooms and chicken curry for dinner tonight.

Get a Head Start on Migraine Pain Identification

Headaches come in all variations of intensity and duration. One of the more debilitating on the spectrum is the migraine, which is actually a significant neurological condition. However, since a headache can assert itself as one of the symptoms, migraines can be difficult to diagnose. Here is how you can determine whether the cranial pain you feel is a migraine rather than another headache type.

Vision Change or Aura

If you experience visual signals within the hour before your head begins to ache, you are possibly on the path to a migraine. Squiggles in your field of vision or other sight disturbances can also pair with auditory changes at the onset of a migraine; however, not every migraine sufferer is susceptible to these.

Unilateral Pulsing Pain

Many headaches spread uniformly across your head or around the neck and temples. The pain is steady. In contrast, classic migraines manifest as a throbbing pain often on one side of the forehead. The pain often lasts between 48 and 72 hours. Because this pain is usually intense, it is essential to seek pain management Jacksonville FL to alleviate the symptoms as an ongoing remediation strategy.

Sensory Sensitivity

Before and during a migraine episode, you may experience heightened sensitivity to sound, smell, taste and touch. Food and airborne pollution may make you nauseous, and loud noises and bright lights will worsen the pulsing in your head; you may find retreating to a dark, quiet room will lessen the symptoms.

Family History

Somewhere in your past, you may have heard parents or siblings discussing migraines because they have experienced them at one time or another. Ask if any have been diagnosed with the condition (and at what age). If so, because certain migraine types are hereditary conditions, the chances are that head pain you feel is on the migraine spectrum.

Though any headache can be an inconvenience, migraines can make day-to-day activities impossible to fulfill. Therefore, if you suspect you have begun to experience them, it is essential to have your symptoms diagnoses and to create a pain management plan.
