Cold nose

  • By Turok

    I’ve had migraines since I hit puberty and they have gotten worse since. I have been diagnosed with intractable chronic migraine without aura. While I do get aura it’s usually less than once a month. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t wake up with a headache. On the rare occasions I don’t have any kind of head pain, I’m so different that people have accused me of being high. Now I’ve gotten visual aura, sensitivity to high pitch noise or even some musical notes, nausea, waking up during the night due intense pain, sensitivity to certain odors, brain fog, irritability, occasional light headedness, tearing eyes on rare occasions and loss of appetite (even though I don’t seem to lose any weight). Now I’ve heard of all these symptoms but does anyone else get a cold nose? It’s not always just my nose sometimes it’s my fingers and toes. I’m just curious, does anyone else gets this?

    Hi Turok,

    Thank you for your question. YES! I often experience a cold nose, fingers and toes. There are a number of conditions that can be comorbid with migraine meaning, they can occur at the same time but are not caused by one another. Raynauds is one such condition;

    Here is an article that has information on other conditions that can be comorbid with migraine;

    Does that help?
