Migraines, no one seems be able to truly understand what causes them. It would seem that it is a little different for everyone. Some people can take medication to reduce the numbers. Some people cannot tolerate medications and have to deal with them another way. Many of the symptoms are like those of a stroke, so if someone is unfamiliar with your type of migraine you may end up in an emergency room with doctors looking for a stroke. I find it all quite interesting.
Here are just a few of some of the symptoms that some people diagnosed with migraines have.
Sensitivity to sound
Pain on one side of the head
Overall weakness, passing out
Puffy eyelids (sometimes one sided)
Numbness and tingling
Sensitivity to light
Nausea with or without vomiting
Change of temperature in hands
Diarrhea – constipation
Feeling lightheaded or dizzy
Sensitivity to smell
As someone who experiences chronic migraines and looks at this list, now wonder they just want me “fixed”. It must be horrible just to live with me that way.
Is it time for me to look at things from their perspective?
Do you have severe headaches?
