I know it's common for people with epilepsy, but they've ruled out epilepsy and told me it's just a migraine aura. Does anyone else experience this? What usually happens is I get the deja vu in my sleep, wake up with the deja vu (it's really intense) often I have excess saliva or I have nausea and vomiting. Soon after the deja vu I experience severe headache (migraine).
Yep! I get these most of the time too, especially when the weather has been crazy! Everyone goes through different symptoms or different experiences with migraines, but the main thing is we ARE NOT alone!! Much love and hugs to you all!
I don’t know what anyone else’s aura feels like, but for me it’s like out of the blue someone “flips a switch” and I have no idea where I’m at. Except for one time, it’s only when I’m driving. Everything will look vaguely familiar, but roads I’ve driven on thousands of times will no longer be familiar to me. I forget where I am, how to get where I’m going, etc. it usually only lasts about 10-20 min. I have to really focus and concentrate to get “reality” back. The only time it lasted longer was a time I was at work. It lasted 8 hours! I couldn’t remember anyone’s name or how I knew them. Everything looked “off”...cartoonish... and a farther away from me than normal. I frequently have issues with distances even without the other aura. Can anyone else relate?
I've been getting them for a few years now. Mine get really bad and last a couple of weeks. The first day I get the dejavu and I'll have it 1-6 times until i throw up. Then the 2nd day the migraine comes and i have really intense dejavus that continue in waves throughout the day. This continues for a couple of weeks but the intensity lessens each day. I'm at a lost because my doctors can help the pain but they can't take that away. I've done eegs and MRIs and they've all come back normal. I'm still trying to figure it all out. Sometimes i feel like I'm just going crazy because i don't hear many people speak about dejavu migraines but i find comfort it knowing I'm not alone although i wish none of us had to go through it!
That's so me! I tend to wake up to a migraine attack. Mouth watering and I do throw up.
Sometimes to try and lay as still as possible for me sometimes it's like daggers coming through my pillow into my head. I tend to pace wherever I can. I also sweat really bad so when it's cooler out I will go outback and just pace up and down my yard. Eventually I can lay back down after my cocktail of meds. It takes time to go to sleep but I do. Sometimes I get them under control in a couple hours or they can last a couple of days. It's hard having 3 children and being in bed for 2-3 days. Mind you my children are 18, 17 and 14. They have seen me down w migraines for many years. So they are amazing and do not even talk around me. My husband has had to come home from work to help run them to school activities.
Too bad there is no rhyme or reason for the migraines and no cure.
God bless y'all!!! I am here if anyone needs to talk!! 😊
