I have been extraordinarily lucky to have had bosses who have family with migraine, so they are pretty understanding. I don’t get mine particularly often (2 per month at worst), but they last nearly three days each, and I am so wiped out and exhausted the day or two after that, I am not going to get as much accomplished as I would like.
Unfortunately, FMLA doesn’t protect wages; it mostly just protects jobs. You can’t lose your job while protected by FMLA, but there is no guarantee of wages. America is a little cruddy in that department. But perhaps your employer offers some kind of short term disability that could work with you?

Sleep does usually, do the trick for me, but…
How much of a life is meant to be in sleep?
I hope that whatever the next step for you might be that ot moves you toward effective therapies and migraine-free days.
pain is “all in the mind”
Sooo, frustrating. I heard that much in regard to other conditions I have.
It’s only happened once with migraine. A stranger said “It’s all a mindest, right?”
I said nothing.
May you feel well soon. Hugs
So sorry to hear. May you feel as well as possible as soon as possible. Hugs

I am just starting testing and stuff for my migraines. But I have had a couple doctors tell me they believe that is what I am experiencing.
I have a cousin that also has them and she was getting Botox for hers until they switched insurance.

I have had migraines since I was about 3rd or 4th grade. I’ve always had the aura/loss of vision then the pounding headache so bad light, sound, moving or talking hurts. I used to get them just once or twice a year.
Then back in 2010 at the age of 29 I started having numbness on the right side of my body starting in my face.
Just in the past…
I recently discovered that chicken eggs contains a surprising large amount of taurine: about 300mg for a large egg.
A 3 eggs omelette is about as efficient as an energy drink. It’s natural and have less side effect then energy drinks. It takes longer to ingest, but it’s a good alternative.
I have all of these! I have a defective thermostat on migraine days. My hair hurts, brain fog, aphasia, and just flat out inability to think sticks with me for days. It’s so frustrating.
Trying to distract myself from my daily headache

I am sorry for your loss. Such a truly sad tragedy. I started having migraines around ages 16 y.o. I was in church choir or high school sports and would just pass out. No one would believe that I would have these massive migraines or “headaches” I vomited non stop they put me or several more than I know 100 since I’ve developed allergic react…
