To start, I’ve had migraines my whole life (from 6 years old, my mom says it was even earlier) and my triggers have been the same –stress, not eating/drinking, bright lights. I experience moments of sharp pain accompanied by a constant pressure behind my eyes, imitrex/Excedrin can do the trick if taken in time but otherwise it’s just sleep that gets rid of them.
Last year I bought my first home, and it has been a migraine nightmare for me ever since. I first thought it was the stress of moving, and my CO detector never went off so i was able to rule that out. I just got back from a 3 week trip where I experienced maybe 5 migraines altogether during that period which is remarkably low for me. Now, after being back home I have woken up with an excruciating migraine every morning like clockwork. Does anybody have any ideas? Could I be getting CO poisoning on a very very low level that wouldn’t set alarm off, or possibly mold in house somewhere? It was built in 1940. I have been taking turmeric and ginger for a long time now since I believe my migraines are just inflamed blood vessels in my forehead area, seems to help lower severity of migraine but I still get them as frequently. Thank you
