Earliest Memories

I remember being 4 years old going to my mom telling her I had a fever. She would feel my head and say it’s not hot. What makes you think you have a fever? I would tell her my head hurts and I wanted that stuff for fevers. She would tell me to go play for awhile and if I still had it later she would give me some baby aspirin. I always came back until she gave me aspirin. It wouldn’t go away on its own.

Obviously they weren’t as severe than or I would have not have been up walking around but would have thought something was wrong with my brain and was dying.

    What a fascinating story and early (first?) memory of migraine.

    Many migraineurs equate early signs of migraine attacks with a feeling of heat, so it makes a lot of sense that you felt like you were coming down with a fever or felt hot.

    Thanks so much for sharing this with us. Glad you’re a part of our community!
