Hi all! I’m new here, and was hoping to find an answer to a question I couldn’t find on Google..
A little background, I’m a 27 year old female, I’ve had migraines since I was a teenager. Sometimes with auras, but not always. I used to have really intense migraines about 5 times a month.. now I more or less always have a headache, with neck pain though it’s not as intense.
Anyways.. I usually wake up with a headache.. I get about 7-8 hours a night, but don’t find I wake up refreshed. However, if I don’t have to wake up at a certain time and can allow myself to wake up naturally, I tend to sleep about 10 or more hours and wake up without a headache and feeling refreshed. Just wondering if it’s a common theme among us migraine sufferers to need more sleep than the rest of humanity??
