I had my first migraine when I was 8. I was told I was starting puberty and to expect them to last for a few years. At age 11, they slowed down considerably. At 20, I was diagnosed with cluster headaches with migraine like symptoms. I had my first daughter at 28. At this time, all headaches, migraine or any other kind, basically stopped. I went almost 10 years with only minimal, mild headaches.
Over the last 3 months (now 38 ), symptoms have returned. Not only am I having multiple clusters of migraines that last for a week or more, I'm plagued with mild headaches in between and I feel sick all the time. Sick as if I'm coming down with something, but I'm not. I've been Covid tested - always negative. I've recently had a ton of bloodwork- all normal. My menstrual cycle has been off, which I'm under the care of my gyn for and waiting some test results, but I feel this may be the culprit.
I have searched articles and the forum about others always feeling sick and have found quite a few people who experience the same. Mild runny nose, aches, joint pain, fatigue, and of course head pain. It shows up out of nowhere and can disappear just as quickly; however, I'd have to say I feel badly more than I feel good. Its exhausting. My husband does his best to understand and be helpful, but truthfully, if you haven't experienced it you'll never really know.
I'm at my wits end and just needed to air out my emotions. I thank you all who took time to read. Hopefully the results I'm waiting for will help. If not, I will be back to the neurologist soon.
