My Migraines and their triggers
Last updated: September 2013
Hello all, I am a 36 years old Male who suffers from intense Migraines. It seems I only get them when the weather is changing, mostly in the spring/early summer months.
Thunderstorms seem to be a good indicator I'm gonna have one, and they last for days.
My pain in only on the left hemisphere, usually starts in my left temple and spreads to my ear and down to my jaw. My first migraine was Thanksgiving 1987. I ate a huge meal then the headache set in. At first I started feeling dizzy and nauseous, an hour later I was in the bathroom loosing my dinner. Three hours later I was curled up in the fetal position on my Mothers living room floor praying for the pain to go away. Not much has changed since.
My headaches last from 5 to 8 hours, with a 2 to 3 hour break and then the next wave hits me. This lasts for a few weeks then they disappear.
Would like some advice on what pain meds work best, my Dr. has me on Norco 5/325. It only dulls the pain.
Do you have a migraine toolbox for when an attack hits?
