OhmygodOW! My head is killing me and the worst part is that lately when the pain gets really bad, I start to clench my teeth and then I get these shooting pains in my jaw, which probably make the migraine worse, and that makes me clench harder, which makes it hurt more, which makes the migraine worse, and ohmygodow!

I know that teeth clenching is sometimes a sign of anxiety, but I'm not feeling anxiety right now. I'm good. Really. I'm just in a whole lot of pain and I would like for it to stop now, please!

For a while I was thinking the teeth clenching was causing migraines, but I'm pretty sure it's the other way around. I definitely had this migraine long before I noticed shooting pains in my jaw.

Also, I'm glad I decided not to do the migraine study... because I'm pretty sure I'm not going to qualify (I'm still finishing out the month-long headache diary qualifying period, despite knowing that the odds are heavily against me participating at this time). I don't think I'm going to have 15 headache free days in the period that I'm recording. Oh well. At least it won't be such a disappointment.
