I typically wake up with my migraines. I often sleep most of the day away when I am having an attack (which is a blessing!). However, then I’m wide awake at night having slept away the better part of 24 hours in a row.
I know that keeping a regular sleep schedule is important for migraine management. I feel like staying up all night, but then can’t stay awake until my regular bedtime the next day because of the postdrome fatigue. Essentially it’s as if a migraine switches me from day shift to night shift in one day. The best I have been able to do is take Big Gun sleeping pills, manage to fall asleep in the middle of the night (3-4 am), sleep in the next day (10-11 am), and then get back on track the days following.
How does everyone else manage this? I’d love to hear any suggestions.
