First timer. Been doing some web research on this and seems more folks are asking about long-lasting migraines. I am looking to see if others have anything like mine.
My trigger is mainly light, though food and weather influence as well. I don't get the classic symptoms like lights. My pain is very centralized on top of my left eye.
I was lucky enough to be diagnosed back in 1988. Back then migraines were a regular 2 week on Sunday occurance. They'd last 8 to 10 hours and then be done without after effects. They made me extremely ill.
Over the years they changed to something less frequent. Now when I get one, about twice a year, I can expect them to last 10-12 days. There's an initial onset, then at regular points in the day it "flares" The pain of the headache doesn't bother me, its the symptoms generated. Nearly instantly when a flare happens, it is followed by nausea and lethargy.
Of course does wonders for general mood!
I don't really know why I am sharing. I don't expect a magic solution at all. Suppose I am just looking for others while I push myself through the current migraine!
