How do you know when you are coming to the end of your migraine rope? When you see a commercial on television for nicotine patches, the kind people use to quit smoking, and you wonder if nicotine patches might make your head feel better during a migraine.
I have never been a smoker so I don’t know how it makes you feel. Still, I’ve seen many smokers looking pretty relaxed and happy with cigarettes between their fingers. There must be something to it.
I decided to call one of my smoking friends to ask her a couple questions before I headed to the drugstore.
Some of my questions included:
“Does nicotine actually give you cancer or is it the actual smoke?”
“Does nicotine speed you up or slow you down?”
To which she responded with a question of her own,
I told her my theory. She told me there was no way I was going to the store to buy nicotine patches to help with my headaches.
“Fine,” I said. “They are probably too expensive anyway.”
