Figure 1 shows the progression of the headache over time. Time 0 is approximately 1PM on Wednesday and the final point point should be at 4PM today. The pain scale is based upon my own personal level of misery. It is perhaps lower than normal, but I don't care. I like to be dramatic when I'm headachy.
I have helpfully included notes to aid in the interpretation of this figure.
Any decreases in pain are due to drugs. To understand that help (or lack thereof) more clearly, we will consult Table 1.
We see that relief was offered by the first 2 medications followed by "PM." The sleeping periods were the only comfort offered recently. Excedrin Migraine allowed me to create the graph and table, so my love for that particular variant of pain relief is confirmed.
As another note, I like that graph. Doing it in 3D makes the line look like a pretty ribbon. A pretty, red ribbon of my extreme misery over the last couple days. But at least it's nice to look at the graph.
But since I don't get paid to make visual aids for my personal life, I should probably return to my paper revisions. I'm getting close to being done - that new figure is pretty (though it doesn't include a pretty ribbon-like graph that illustrates my suffering) and I just have to explain a couple of points that I understand, but struggle to articulate adequately. (I'd like to say - for just one point within many points that were completely valid and wonderful - "Reviewer- You're mistaken. Here's what you asked for, but it doesn't make any sense. So I'm right - the old way was better. Please admit your error and we'll all move on with our lives. Thanks!" but that probably won't work.)
