So, I’ve suffered from bad migraines for a few years on and off now. I’ve been so focused on the pain, vomiting, and the memory issues that I’ve never really stopped to focus on the smaller complications of my migraines until recently. Recently because I think I’ve been the victim of silent migraines.
As you know, silent migraines have all of the symptoms of regular migraines minus the pain (ie the irrefutable proof migraines aren’t just a ‘headache’).
So, I thought I don’t get much on the “aura” phase. I get a weird feeling that I can’t explain before I get a migraine (as long as there’s no triggers that cause me to go right into pain like certain noises). I’m sure I’m not the only one that get’s the weird feeling. It’s not pain, there’s no real words to describe the feeling. It’s not like you feel something physically, it’s just a sixth-sense type of thing where you’re like, “Yup, gonna get a migraine in a few minutes.”
But anyways, back on topic. Today I’ve had that weird feeling. No real migraine pain. But I’ve noticed I do aura a little. Not as bad as most, it’s just annoying enoguh for me to think it’s something with my contact and shrug it off. And that “weird feeling” is probably aura too. And I have issues with my speech (usually ranging between a stutter and slurred speech). Plus I get vertigo, dizziness, and lethargy pretty bad.
But then I had the hiccups today (extremely annoying), and when I have the hiccups I get a small headache. Now, it’s not a migraine. A headache feels very different from a migraine. It’s just a small annoying headache. So I googled, “Hiccups and headaches.” And what do you know, that’s apparently aura too! Now, I still don’t know why I get those small annoying headaches when I get the hiccups, but that obviously explains why I can’t get rid of my hiccups when I get them (I usually just wait them out).
I really just wanted to know if anyone else gets them or has noticed a pattern with their hiccups and other migraine symptoms.
