    Mine is PAIN, PAIN AND MORE PAIN, IN THE HEAD. Sometimes It’s like a knife stabbing my head and the pressure inside my head.

    My daughters worse is passing out. They started at 6 yrs old and the doctor called them sleeping seizures associated with migraines. Thankfully that only lasted a year. They are back and come and go. She passed out 3 times in a row, leaving her bruised, cut and not knowing what happened. I think it’s just another type of migraine joining her already long list of migraines.

    The combination of the extreme pain in my head, left temple, around the left eye AND the fatigue… It’s so hard to focus with the chronic migraine. I feel like I have to put on a happy face so people don’t know how bad it is.

    Frustrating symptoms are the speech impediment. I slur my words and have to tell people that I am NOT having a stroke. And the other symptom is the fatigue. The onset and suddenness of it can be baffling.

    Or the head pain is so extreme that you don’t notice what craziness the body is up to.
