I'm new here. I just found this forum in search of answers and a sense of understanding from others. For well over a decade I've been having migraines at least once or twice a week. The actual headache part of it only lasts about a day or two but the symptoms that follows that for several DAYS or even WEEKS later is just as debilitating. I feel tired in so many ways. Weak. Lathargic. Short of breath. So sleepy that I have to keep taking naps. As well as that, I feel as though brain is just not fuctioning properly at all. It's so sluggish and confused. I'm lacking a good sense of awareness for my surroundings and I feel in a way that I can only describe as being really drunk and not in a pleasant way. It makes me clumbsy and careless. I feel tingly, my vision is really splotchy and I occasionally have ringing in my ears. I can barely do anything in this state and I feel at times like it's taking what could be precious moments of my life away from me that I could be doing valuble things with. My last migraine was 3 days ago and I still feel horendous with all of these symptoms. I feel like I can barely fuction when I'm like this. Is it normal to have such postdrome effects to this extent? Also does anyone know of any tried and tested ways that might help it all go away faster?
