I am 69 and had my first migraine 45 years ago. Brought on by a type of snow blindness. I would have them a couple of times a year - diminishing sight with an aura ... no real headache but the feeling that I had been to a great party the night before. Never really medicated as I had no significant pain ... just dark glasses and a quiet space. Six years ago I had a stroke on my optic nerve and lost enough peripheral vision to lose my diving licence. Since then I have far more frequent migraines - no aura, no real headache but very painful/sensitive scalp, eyes, nose, head, back of neck. Really debilitating and normally lasting 5 days. My problem is I am limited to what medications I can have because of the stroke. I am in UK. Any suggestions on how to cope with the pain.
