Hair hurting, just add em’ up

I have alot of symptoms that accompany my migraines but now I have a new one, my hair hurts…BAD! It feels like I got into a girl fight and she pulled my hair for an hour with all her might. In a “season” right now. Was laid up in bed for the past 3 days. Gonna have to go back to the neurologist though cause my meds aren’t working. Just hoping it gets better. Was hoping for relief after dealing with endometriosis. But it seems like my body doesn’t like the idea of me feeling good. Hope everyone feels better!

    Shellyshel,
    You are likely experiencing allodynia, which is a fancy word for something hurts that’s not supposed to! I occasionally get these symptoms too. I’ve read from other community members that they’ve cut their long hair in an attempt to reduce that sensation (some say it has helped, but I’m not suggesting that you do that). Here’s an article that better explains this phenomenon that may Migraineurs go through:
