I have been experiencing migraines since my junior year of college- about 5-ish years ago. Since then, my migraines are getting more and more frequent. I have all the usual symptoms- nausea, light & sound sensitivity, and headache pain in the crook of my right eyebrow and nose. Within the past year, however, facial pain is a growing symptom/issue. The pain runs along my cheek bones (both sides) and the sensations feels as if someone if pushing in on my face. The face pain not necessarily debilitating but I can't seem to shake it. With this facial pain, I always have nausea and I grow tired/grumpy very quickly. In this same breath, I don't always have the headache pain when my face hurts.
I subconsciously push on my cheek bones (applying pressure hurts but also feels good... weird) when the pain starts and that's when my family knows that I am beginning to have a headache.
Does anyone else experience this? I told my dr. about the facial pain and she looked at me like I was crazy. Am I making this up in my brain? This is starting to affect my daily life and what I do. If anyone has any experience or leads that I could follow up with that would be greatly appreciated.
All the best,
