Other symptoms may include the appearance of a large blue arrow across the top of the hairline.

Does it affect women as well?

Dale said...

I'm not sure. At this time, they seem to be talking to ADAM only Winter. I'll continue my research.

Chancelucky said...

I'd wondered what that blue arrow was doing on the side of my head.

"jew" "girl" said...

potd, you are a riot, kid.

Dale said...

If you part your hair the right way CL, nobody'll notice. Ah so!

Hey there Jewgy girl. :-)

Coaster Punchman said...

Poor George wanted to know if that was the guy who got voted off Idol. All Asians look alike to him. Racist bastard.

Jill said...

Do you have a bad case of loving your doctor???
My niece like your picture ID, I think, the poor kid don't know better!!

Writeprocrastinator said...

That's not migraine-related, but "Coulteritis." A disease that strikes suddenly and causes the patient to shift to the right for profit.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

The blue arrow headaches are bad enough, but it's the red X ones that really get me.

SlayGirl said...

The guy in the pic looks more constipated than migrainy to me. I have never had a migraine but will know what to look for now. You are a fountain of information...arrow information.

Geeti Das said...

Do you have a blue arrow yourself, Dale? Get well soon [if so].

Dale said...

I couldn't figure out if it was Poor George or William Hung so I just posted it anyway CP. I love racism!

Actually I'm in between doctors Jill. When I find one, I'll ask about your problem too.

It's good that I didn't say 'ride the wave' then I guess huh WP?

Unless there's treasure or porn below, I don't want to see the X Barbara.

Thank you for pointing that out Slaygirl. I hope he works through it.

Aw, Geeti, you care! I don't, I was just trying to be funny but now I learn that I've hurt Lulu which does cause me pain.

chelene said...

Why did they use a arrow with one point? Wouldn't an arrow with points on both ends have made a better illustration? I feel dirty for caring this much.

lulu said...

I'm much better now Dale, so don't feel too bad.

I think that the arrow is meant to show the movement of the pain, although my migraines only stay on my right side and go from back to front, much like a large claw yanking at my eyeball.

Tenacious S said...

Mine generally start one-sided but progress to a point where I am convinced I must hold my skull together with a pillow or my brains will *decorate* the ceiling. If I could see when this happens I'm sure there would be several blue arrows pointing away from my skull to different coordiantes in the room. Kaboom!

Dale said...

I think the arrow is to signify where to bash with the rock Chelene. Don't ever stop caring.

The next best thing to you feeling better Lulu is noticing that your labels say Dale,lazy. You've captured me perfectly!

That's vivid Tenacious S! Hope the statistics don't give you any extra arrows!

X. Dell said...

With the blue arrow and everything, you'd think they'd be pretty easy to diagnose.

Dale said...

I know X. Dell! All those years of med school. Sheesh, look for the arrow.

The thing I hate about migraines is that everyone claims to have them when many times, it's just a bad headache they're talking about. Headache arrows are a different colour.

lulu said...

Bad headaches hurt, but are nothing like migraines. Migraines make you write bad poetry about the pain. Migraines make you feel like you need a C-clamp to keep the squishy bits inside. And yes, Migraines leave a big blue arrow on your scalp. Migraines fucking suck.

Mob said...

If people who are suffering from migraines actually had the big blue arrow for a warning, I'd try to be quieter and more considerate around them.

deadspot said...

I wonder what illustration they use for those sinus headaches that make it feel like one of your eyes is about to burst right out of your head.

Beth said...

But the blue arrow is so retro punk.

Andi said...

Yep, that's my migraine precisely.

Jill said...

Dale, it's kind of normal talking about yourself to your doctor...Just do that and my problem will be solve!!

larry h. said...

Dale ... never ever lose that wit of yours, mate.

Dale said...

They actually sound fun when you put it that way Lulu! Thanks!

You're a decent sort Mob. Thank you for your near consideration.

It's either a sledgehammer or a couple of letter eyes Deadspot. Once mine flare again, I'll remember fully.

It wants to just be punk but it'll settle for retro punk Beth.

Take it back Andi?

Good advice Jill. I'll bring that up when I go back.

deadspot said...

Because funny hats are always entertaining...

Sinus Pressure

BeckEye said...

I have a large red arrow swirling around my stomach in a counter-clockwise direction, and some purple sprinkly things flying in from above every once in a while. What does that mean?

justacoolcat said...

I thought the arrow over was to hide the balding.

Dale said...

I take my hat off to your link Deadspot!

Are you patting your head at the same time Beckeye? I know what that means.

In my case, yes, that's what it's for Justacoolcat. Luckily, nobody else is reading this far along by now.

James said...

Funny....when I went to get my haircut, they took the blue arrow off. Now...no more headaches!

I guess now I can stop applying Head On directly to my forehead. (Do they even have that commercial in the Greath White North?)

Dale said...

We don't have it James but I just looked it up on HeadOnTube. Man! I may need a prescription to get that out of my head now.

Head On, Apply Directly to the Forehead. Head On, Apply Directly to the Forehead. Head On, Apply Directly to the Forehead. Head On, Apply Directly to the Forehead. Head On, Apply Directly to the Forehead.

bigshoulders said...

As one who is plagued with migraines from time to time, now I know what to look out for.

Be glad that you are spared those "Head On" commercials. They are insidious. [shudder]

b.s.

Dale said...

It may be all that lightning swirling around your blog causing the disturbance bigshoulders.
