Hi, I have been suffering from migraines since childhood (now I'm 45). lately the frequency of my migraines has increased, but I don't want to take prevention medicines, so I just take pain medication, massage the head with mint oil, etc.
What worries me is that lately I have noticed that I am having trouble finding words. Not constantly but it happened several times. For example, I want to say something, and I know the word, but I have the feeling of it being at the tip of the tongue. This doesn't happen only when I am having a migraine episode. Aldo, I used to ace word games like Boggle, but now I find I m slower at these or that I am not as good s before.
Should I worry? Could it be a migraine effect or something else, like Alzheimer's? I haven't told anyone, don't ant my dearest ones to worry.
