My neurologist asked me to do a daily headache diary for my chronic migraine problem. I dutifully filled out the chart for 2 months and returned to his office.
He noticed that I had marked down the intensity of pain as 1 or 2 on some days. I explained that there are days when I will get migraine pain after eating, walking, or moving abruptly but that it doesn't develop into a full-blown migraine. It may only last 10-15 minutes. I can bring one on almost at will by doing one of those activities.
He didn't seem to like my response and told me not to mark down 1s or 2s anymore; just to note the 'real' migraines.
Does anyone else experience these transient 'mini-migraines'? Thanks.
