BamaFan commented on the post, What’s Your Secret: Allodynia-Dealing with Hair Pain 50 minutes ago
As I read article after article and watch all the videos, I keep wanting to run to my front door, open it, and yell, “I’m not crazy, after all!” I have battled migraine for almost 30 years and this is the first time I’m reading and seeing things that sound as if I could have written them. I can’t tell you how amazing and how freeing this is! THANK…
I have had similar problems. I thought it was just mental fog.
I have been diagnosed with abnormal aura migraine with strokelike symptoms. Weakness on one side. Mental fog. Extreme difficulty speaking. Hospitalized three times until it got somewhat under control.
Yes. My mom had the same need to lie still while it was going on.
Hi @emi346, I just wanted to let you know that there was a comment recently on one of my articles (“The other side of the spoon”) stating that the poster’s daughter had severe hair loss with Aimovig. That was the first I had heard of it, and that is certainly a distressing side effect. Thank you for making sure to contact the FDA!

Welcome to the Migraine.com discussion forum – we’re glad you found us!
I’ve not heard this before. When I blow my nose frequently, due to cold or what have you, I tend to get pimples around my nose.
I have no choice but to lay crying in bed taking my meds in the dark. I’ll go from ice across my neck or heating wrap around my neck and face. Funny that the article says some need TV. That’s me and I can even tell what volume it’s on without looking. If I don’t, hearing my head pound makes it extremely worse. Work? No choice…gotta go. Sometim…
Me too. 54 years (but some long breaks in between, one of 12 years). All medications failed, including Botox and Aimovig. But I have turned away from medicine and am pursuing exercise – at age 79. I’m going to compete in Masters Athletics. I won’t let the beast win. (Current migraine of 65 days duration). Don’t wave the white flag. Forget about…

I’ve had bad headaches all my life, had sinus surgery two years ago to try to help it since sinus infections were a major cause of the headaches. Recently I’ve noticed that I get bumps/pimples on the back of my neck that go along with the headaches. I still cant narrow down which comes first (the headaches or the bumps) but the ENT said she’s…
I’ve been having more optical migraines- like having a smudge on your glasses or someone’s finger is blocking vision of one eye, but only in a spot. My neuro says should only last about 10 minutes or so, but mine last for hours or days.
Hey Cappucinno, I really appreciate the “very informative article which was pretty thorough as far as knowledge and common sense.” That is exactly what my goal is in my writing for migraine.com. 🙂 I would say if you don’t mind having a piercing and have a bit of extra cash, you have nothing to lose. And yeah, go to Delaware. Happy for your…
Oh Danielle. I am so very sorry about your daughter. I’ve often been grateful that I didn’t become chronic until after the birth of my own first child. My heart hurts for you, and her. My first month on Ajovy I was much improved. I’m in my second month and had a bad week, but didn’t need to go to the ER or even miss a shift at my part time job. So…
I’m so sorry to hear you’ve had such a difficult time. I hear you about trading in pain free days for feeling better.
Try not to lose hope, the other CGRP medications work a bit differently and may not have the same impact Aimovig did. Dr. Dodick explains that here; https://migraine.com/living-migraine/cgrp-work-key-lock/.
