Since I've started reading more and more about migraines, I'm surprised at how much I didn't know about my own disease, or how much I knew but thought I was the only one experiencing. So now I've been experiencing new symptoms.
What's causing my symptoms?
Because I use medical marijuana and CGRP to treat, now it seems that my moving target has shifted in a big way. Now I am only left with the really bad symptoms. One such symptom is nausea. I always thought that the pain caused nausea. But now that I experience this once every couple months or so, I can say with certainty that's not right. Often when I get to the throwing up stage, I've been in pain for hours, and am not hurting so much when that happens. So this begs the question, what's with all the throwing up? Why? What's causing this to happen? Is there anything I can do to make it stop?
Another thing I noticed last night and even the day before, is I was ridiculously hungry. I just couldn't stop being hungry. I wonder if my body knew what was going to happen long before I did. And this begs another question. If our bodies know long in advance, is there some kind of chemical reaction that happens long before the migraine that you could pick up on, and maybe a migraine sensor for those of us experiencing the really chronic ones? Perhaps the way that treatment is done is all wrong. If we could tap into our body's warning system to figure out what makes you suddenly feel confused or nauseous or hungry or whatever, and treat those chemical reactions.
Migraine sensor detection
My idea for a migraine sensor is not based on anything at all. I don't know anything about science, but just feel like all of the body's reactions to stuff are chemical-based. One chemical drops and you're sad. Another one rises and you're mad. So there ought to be a way to figure out which chemicals are rising and falling and make a sensor that detects this BEFORE migraine happens so that you could treat much sooner.
Does this make sense to anyone? Please reply and let me know what's wrong or right with this idea, and seriously, what's up with nausea?
