Even though I was diagnosed with migraines upon menarche, I remembered disagreeing with my pediatrician since I knew what migraines looked like, because my mother is a sufferer, and I just never felt that bad. My mom’s headaches were debilitating for her while mine were just a constant irritating nuisance. I know that I don’t have to have all of the signs and symptoms in order to have migraines, but I’m not light sensitive or noise sensitive. There’s no aura, weakness, or vomitting or severe pain. I usually just have between 1 and 4 headaches a month that last for three days. They are usually triggered by lack of sleep, menstruation, and certain smells and are accompanied by nausea. The only things that makes it worse are sudden movements and certain smells. And although I’m a bit more irritable and have a harder time concentrating because of the pain, I’m still able to go about my day to day business without the aid of medication (not like any of it gets rid of the headache anyway.) So if I do suffer from migraines I feel like I have a very mild version of it. Can anyone else relate?
