Hot head?

  • By Willow

    Hi. With my migraines my head gets really hot. I use ice packs daily and have noticed a difference in how long they stay cool. Anyone else get a hot head? Anyone know an explanation?? Thanks

    I literally get so feverish I’ll get out a thermometer and be buried under blankets with chills. I’ve never actually run a temperature, though. It’s crazy.

    Hi to Jacqui and others. My hot heads started almost three years ago after I had fallen over on the concrete and hit my chin on the ground. Each year the heat gets less and less. These are the things I do to that helps me. I wear an open stitch crotchet cotton hat dipped in cold water most of the time(A lot less now). My pain specialist told me to walk 10 to 15 minutes a day. I found this was most helpful last summer. This summer I have been busier although I am walking now. Cold showers really helped in the beginning and I had to often had to dip my head in colder water in the bathroom sink basin.
    The last thing I do was to try to even the heat through my body by wearing gloves and socks to bed and my wet crochet hat.
    Hope this helps you and others.

    A couple of years ago I started having hot flashes due to another chronic disease and these would make my head so hot I’d start getting a migraine. Now I don’t hardly get the hot flashes, but sometimes my head will get extremely hot like a hot flash from the neck up and I’ll get a migraine, blurry vision and dry eyes and mouth. I just assumed it was the heat causing the migraines. Now I don’t know what to think.
