90% of my headaches are scent induced. Anything from perfumes, bonfires, microwaved foods, lotions, etc can induce a migraine. Once a headache starts from a smell, every scent is antagonizing - increasing the headache to a migraine. On occasion, my migraine med will stop a headache and keep it at a low hum. But more often then not, I'll have a full-blown I'm down in bed for 3 days migraine if I can't catch it immediately. I'm just wondering if anyone else has scent induced migraines. My Dr's don't seem to think the scent induced part is important. But I do. I often wonder if there is an underlying issue that's not being found. I've always had an extremely sensitive nose, but over the last 4-5 years, the sensitivity to smell has been excruciating at times. I can no longer wear my own perfume, have to limit any fabric softener use, can't even let me 8-year-old daughter use lotions that she loves or my ever-growing curious 14-year-old son use cologne for the "girls' It's depressing at times.
