When I was in my teens to early 20s I used to get migraines that included a flash before I got the headache, followed by a severe headache, vomitting–then exhaustion. After I had my first child, they stopped.
Now, I’m pre-menopausal & for the past 6 months I’ve had pain in my right eye & my forehead over the right eye. I went to the ophthalmologist & got a clean bill of health. I’m continuing to have the pain & am now having a half circle aura whenever I move my eye to the right to the left.
I was prescribed Imitrex until my follow up with my family doctor in 2 weeks. The Imitrex does help but not completely.
I’m wondering if my migraines have returned. My symptoms are different than when I was younger. The headache is different & while constant, not as severe. I don’t get them every day, but I’d say probably 15-20 days out of the month I have a headache for most of the day. The aura is becoming increasingly worrying to me because its constant now.
Do these sound like migraine symptoms?
