The Interesting Things about Migraines

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

  Hives

 Puffy eyelids (sometimes one sided)

 Numbness and tingling

 Fatigue

 Mood Swings

 Vision changes

 Sensitivity to light

 Nausea with or without vomiting

 Neck pain

 Change of temperature in hands

 Difficulty concentrating

 Food cravings

 Vertigo

 Diarrhea – constipation

 Throbbing Pain

 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.

  1. Good post. I have only ever had one migraine, when I was about 15 and revising for my exams at school. I strained my eyes studying, it started a terrible headache, and I was ill for days, with not just pain in the head, blurred vision, etc, but also being physically sick and hardly able to walk. I had to be very careful after that with reading things. I believe migraines can have different causes, but the extreme symptoms are a result of the inner ear body-balancing mechanism being disrupted somehow.
