Migraine is a full-on body experience. The agonizing pain that refuses to end, the nausea and vomiting - well beyond anything left in my stomach. Tingling in my hands and feet, diarrhea, difficulty seeing, inability to sleep. Dehydration, Exhausted all the time. Depression, despair, hopelessness and isolation. Light hurts, my hair hurts. Jaw and neck pain... and on it goes so no, migraine is not just a headache.
