I’ve noticed that if I laugh a lot for a semi extended period of time I get a horrible, migraine level headache complete with nausea. They hit as soon as I’m really laughing and can last for hours afterward. I’ve read about headaches caused by straining like coughing or laughing, but the ones I get are more than simple headaches. Most of the time they reach a 9 or even 10 on the pain scale and the nausea is intense. The worst part is that the only way I know to avoid them is to avoid laughing which cuts out Girls’ Night, game night, parties, amusement parks, etc. It’s like being allergic to fun!! Does anyone else experience these?
I just want to note that these laughter induced migraines are different from my chronic migraines which usually occur 5 days out of every week. I already lose so much of life due to migraines, I hate to give up more of my precious “good” days!
