Migraineurs Problems

No, it's not a headache. Yes, I've tried Ibuprofen and Aspirin.

Common Migraine Triggers

Hi,

Hope this finds you well. Healthline just released an interactive guide on migraine triggers. The page details 14 common triggers for migraines and how you can manage them. You can check out the guide here: http://www.healthline.com/health/migraine/triggers

This is very valuable, med-reviewed information that helps a sufferer lessen migraine severity and frequency. I thought this would be a great tool for your site, and I am writing to ask if you would include it as a resource on your page: http://migraineursproblems.tumblr.com/post/29186337121/forget-ocular-migraines-stroke-like-migraines-are

Please let me know if this would be possible. I’m happy to answer any other questions as well.

Anonymous asked: Should I go to the ER if I experience the numbness with my migraine to Make sure I'm not actually having a stroke?

I can’t be sure, of course there are pros and cons, and I would recommend it if you’re a woman since strokes have very different symptoms for women than men. :) But then it depends on your age, health, physical condition, predispositions to strokes…

Anonymous asked: Submitting this anon because embarrassing but... I can't attest to *sex* helping migraines, but sometimes, when I have a bad migraine, I'm in the dark, and I can't sleep, masturbation helps...

At least, this is great news for someone! You go, anon!

Migraine was a Stroke.

Hello, I suffer from Optical migraines ( I call them Visuals) distorted vision for 45 min- 1 hour  I can have 1 a day and I have had as many as 9 in 1 day.they are not always accompanied with pain but when I have a few of them in a couple of days pain is not the word, when they come it is like I need darkness, ice, quiet. I have had migraines (Mig’s) since I was 15. I had Glaucoma due to one eye, over the years it just got worse in 2002 or so I was getting the optical it was so bad I had an eye removed. I had a CVA  in 2012, thought it was a bad mig, I was lucky, I lost my speech some what and 1/2 the vision in my left eye, and memory issues, I still have Memory issues. I have about 3-5  visuals a week it all depends my last bout was 6 days long. I do know when I am about to get a migraine that a few days (sometimes) my thinking, and speech is off somewhat. like bass ackwards I have had stroke like symptoms with Mig’s before so I didn’t think any thing of it ,So now i get scarred when it happens I have not been able to work since my CVA, they have become worse and more frequent.

anyone else out there have these types of problems…

Migraineurs Problems:

Wow. I think that your problems might be much more than “regular” migraines; I suppose your doctors tested you for any kind of brain damages, because it could be linked to severe neurological issues? Yet I am absolutely not a doctor so these are just suppositions. 

This is good to know though, since strokes don’t always appear the way they are shown on TV so a lot of people have strokes without realizing it. Thanks for sharing, I wish you all the best and hope you somehow find a way to be at peace with your head. 

If anyone has similar experiences to share with our unfortunate friend?

Ok this is about headaches and not migraines but still I would LOVE it if my meds could talk to me like that. Maybe we should all do that, stick a little piece of paper on the box that tells us to take some time for ourselves and relax to get rid of the migraine (or try, at least…).

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate kids and I have a high level of tolerance because I guess it’s not easy to keep your little brats quiet when you’re a parent; I truly think it’s a tough job.
But migraine + noise = lack of patience. Please sweet little angels, shut the fuck up!

I don’t know how often I had to tell people that I am not actually sad, but that my migraine causes my eyes to tear up. Looking miserable and being very quiet because I have a migraine attack or severe headaches doesn’t help.

People always ask me if I’m pissed. I always say I’m tired because saying I have a migraine won’t make them less noisy anyway…

warningstandbygo asked: Just wanted to say it's nice to see a blog like this! As someone who knows multiple people that are and lives with one, it's nice to see something like this. I try to be very aware, but this is a nice way to remind me that even what I may think are the smallest things can be a much bigger deal to someone else. To all of you out there who suffer - my sincerest condolences, sympathy, and well wishes!

To be honest, I didn’t start this blog with the purpose of “educating” non-migraineurs about migraines because I think it’s just like any health condition, if you don’t have it you can’t really understand the pain of people who suffer it… this is what I try to remember when  facing people with sicknesses I don’t know myself. ^^ It was just a place to rant about these moments and maybe show some folks they are not the only ones who want to literally smash their head against the wall sometimes.

Anyway, I think the problem is that society likes to represent migraines as a headache ignoring that it’s so much more, just like it talks about depression as a “big sadness” or, less glamorous, you know when some people say they have gastroenteritis when they just have a little diarrhea. We like to use “fancy words” to describe small pains when in the end it discredits important health conditions. This is why I don’t blame non-migraineurs who aren’t aware of the true effects of a migraine (but I tend to blame my boyfriend when he doesn’t understand it after eight long years… ^^”).

Thanks for your kind words, they’re really appreciated! I’m sure you’re trying your best, don’t worry.

vergilia-deactivated20130727 asked: Awesome blog! I love everything aout it - didn't think one would exist for such a problem :> My migraines are genetic (kind of). My father's are controlled by his level of stress and my mother's are heavily influenced by the weather. Being their child, I kind of got both ends ;_; I hate having exam days on thundering weather... for obvious reasons. Haha. But keep up the awesome work you've done here. Thank you for your lovely posts. May your pain be lessened /U_U/

Hello, why thanks you very much! :) I’m glad you enjoy the blog -and as usual, not so glad for you you’re “one of us”.

As you say, migraines can be a tough heritage! I hope for you you live in a region where the weather is not too bad, neither too hot, too stormy or sunny. Thank you very much for the kind words, they’re a real good incentive.

May your pain be lessened too, and don’t hesitate to submit my dears, more brains equal more good ideas!

tigthered asked: Great post on the stroke style migraine. The first time I had one it scared the hell out of me as well.

Well, as I said I had never heard of it until yesterday but when I informed my migraineurs family about it, I learnt that my ex doctor’s wife had a variation of these migraines, except with trigeminal neuralgia. Her face would get half paralysed in a very impressive way.

Yet another way migraines are so much more than “just a headache”. It’s difficult to stay well informed but even when you don’t have any kind of neurological issue, the neurological symptoms are scary as hell, especially the first time. :/
