Anyone experience throat ache/pain with migraine?

My migraines have increased and become more severe in last few months. I get weak and feel sick all over which is new for me, also stomach upset. None of this surprises me as I know that migraine morphs and I am 30 years in so I get that. This new symptom is puzzling and was very stressful at first. My throat aches, is not sore but aches, sometimes get tongue and mouth sores with it and tingling on tongue. These coincide with migraine, pretty sure hormone related too.

Have seen dr and ear,nose, throat. Nothing medical can be found. Anyone else have anything like this?

  1. Hi there ,

    Thank you for your question & for reaching out. I’m sorry you are having a rough time right now and that you are experiencing these changes in symptoms. I’ve not heard of this particular symptom before, but that sure doesn’t mean it’s not possible! Hopefully others will be along shortly to share their experiences with you. I realize you have seen an ENT, but have you also been in contact with your doctor that is treating your migraine disease to discuss these changes in symptoms? It is always important to do so in order to rule out anything more serious. Also, to ask, has there been any changes in your medications? Keep us posted! -Joanna ( Team)

    1. Hi Joanna,
      I am in process of going back to neurologist, no changes in meds. I cant take much because I am so sensitive to side effects, just use Tylenol. Thank you!

      1. Yes . This is a new symptom for me . I get a sore throat, or earache. First times I thought I was getting a virus. Told my Dr who wasn’t surprised. You can also get tooth pain too. Which is hard to sort as I also am known to grind my teeth at night. Nowadays when I get new symptoms I look up migraine sites and if it’s there I put it down to migraine and just tell the Dr at my next visit

        1. Yes. I been looking on line for links to the headaches and throat pain and tightness. It’s not soar like a soar throat when your sick. I get these head aches and when they get really bad my throat hurts too. I haven’t been able to find much information regarding this. However, I came across your question and found someone who could relate. Thank you for posing the question. I wish there was more info about this for us.
