I'm totally confused about migraines. I only had mine diagnosed when I had 4 auras over 5 days which led to an MRI and neurologist appointment. She's got me keeping a diary, but headache is not my main symptom and even with headache it comes and goes for hours or days. I just don't know for sure it's migraine and not tension headache. I normally would take paracetamol or nurofen like once a year. And half a dose, so the idea of popping a pill is just alien to me. But at the same time I am definitely having symptoms around ovulation and menstruation and now that my periods are 3 weeks apart that means I'm lucky to have 1 week a cycle that I feel normal. I guess this is a long winded way of saying, should I just pop a pill whenever I want to??? Just to see if it helps if nothing else?
