From 3:10am Central/US
Baby poop
So I tried to post this (appreviated) via phone at 3:10am, but I was full of fail.

I woke up at 2:11am with the second worst headache I've ever had. Or maybe the worst. I'm not sure. I apparently slept through the onset, and woke up with weird dreams. When I finally was up, I just laid there wondering if I should write down where all it was hurting in case I was in a coma or dead the next day.

I took 400mg naproxen and had a little water. At 3:10 my headache was still between a 6 and a 7 on the pain scale, but I was tired and it was enough of a drop off to go back to sleep.

This morning, I woke up and it was about a 1. Sort of like the day after an injury, if you don't move, it doesn't hurt much. Standing up was a 2, and now, 2.5 hours later, I'm at a 3+. I have some physical energy, but I feel tired and beaten.

I found out that another friend, born 9 days after me, had a migraine around 11pm last night, so I blame her for projecting the pain at me from 40 miles away.

Wasn't it you telling me that stuff causes Alzheimer's?

I think it was you.

Somebody told me that. I think.

I'm pretty sure, whoever it was, I haven't taken any since then.

Whenever that was.

Man, I have a headache, I wonder if we have any Aleve?

Aleve? Hey, doesn't that stuff cause Alzheimer's?

Not me, didn't hear anything.

Initial research tells me this:
* Ibuprofen reduces Alzheimer's symptoms by 50% in a very large research group.
* Other NSAIDs had mixed results, but showed general mental age progression slightly increased over placebo for those WITHOUT Alzheimer's.
* The study on whether naproxen or celebrex could benefit Alzheimer's was cancelled because of an increase of risk of cardiovascular event in geriatric test subjects (3.7% over 3 yrs for Naproxen vs 2.5% over 3 yrs for placebo in subjects over age 70).
