Migraines after covid

Me again. Sorry. I got a migraine mid sleep during covid (this can sometimes happen 1x month for me for a few months and then next few months doesnt happen. Botox sometimes makes these stop). I’ll get them 1x month same week. This time it was only 3 weeks apart. The july one w covid was more mild. Can covid cause patterns to change w migraines? Anyone experience some odd ones? I had covid 7/6. I have not had more frequency thankfully but just more med resistant or different patterns.If this happened to u, how long did it last?

  1. Hi @mk2019, Personally, I had an increase in both frequency and intensity after COVID, and I have seen other members say the same. I thought I'd share a list of conversation regarding migraine and COVID: https://migraine.com/search?s=covid - I hope there is some useful information there for you. - Warmly, Donna (team member)

    1. Tysm! How long did it last? I am lucky
      To have not more migraines so far but more med resistant or more severe


      1. I don't have much to add to the COVID discussion as I don't believe I've had it yet. I say that with hesitancy as I could have had it and been asymptomatic.
        Please don't ever feel like you need apologize for popping in and asking questions - we love interacting with you all!!

    2. HI - I had covid 11/2020 and the migraine was terrible - 10 days straight. I got through but my migraines increased in duration but not pattern following. Have you looked into long covid signs and symptoms. It might be one of the symptoms. Hoping you are doing better and migraine pain and duration has eased up. Rebecca (CCM & Advc)
