Who experiences auras before migraines sometimes?

Who experiences auras before migraines sometimes?

I have always had some visual disturbance with and preceding a migraine. However it is rarer that I have a super aura. The first time I had one, I woke to the certainty of police and emergency vehicles outside our window. The red lights were flashing all around my room. I got out of bed to look out the window, there was nothing. Yet the red flashing continued for a few minutes. Followed by a migraine the first time, but not every time. Sometimes it looks more like… read more

I love the internet and Facebook but being on my IPAD, phone and computer make my headaches worse. It can even trigger a migraine. Anyone else have that problem.

Eye Stroke caused by migraine, Permanent

Eye Stroke caused by migraine, Permanent

Has anyone had this happen to them??
I woke up with migraine. Got up and took migraine meds. 10 minutes later while laying down with eyes shut I saw 3 bright full blue moons that grew in rapid sec section, one after another.
I looked at alarm clock and I could only read the top half of numbers. Got up, turned light on and bottom of vision in one eye was gone! Looked like jagged sheets of ice.
Went to ER IMMEDIATELY. In the time it took to get there the blockage moved to… read more

Migraines vs Menopause

Migraines vs Menopause

Does anyone have migraines and think they were brought on by menopause? Or peri-menopause? I just turned 48, been having migraines for almost a year now, seems to becoming more frequently! Menstrual cycles are messed up also. Taking meds to regulate them, waiting for Mirana IUD Birth Control that should eliminate cycles, hopefully. Hoping it'll eliminate Migraines also. The worst migraines are 1-2 days before cycle starts, I've noticed, the last few months.
I've ordered the menopause OTC… read more

Barometric pressure....how does it affect you and is there anything you can do to avoid them?

Barometric pressure....how does it affect you and is there anything you can do to avoid them?

My migraines are definitely triggered by the barometric pressure going down. It doesn't seem to bother me when it rises. I live in the Calgary, Alberta, Canada region and we have the worst BP changes in the country. Used to love the Chinooks over the mountains as it brings warmer weather but now that I have migraines, I dread them.

where is the best place to live with less barometric pressure systems?

where is the best place to live with less barometric pressure systems?

My migraine triggers are barometric system (weather change) I get the migraine two days before the system arrives, once it arrives just like a snap of the fingers it’s gone! I live in WI
I’m looking to relocate for retirement (I thought AZ?)

How much does the weather play a role with your migraine

How much does the weather play a role with your migraine

I can't believe how much better I feel now that the temperature has dropped. There also does not seem to be the big fluctuations in the temperature, humidity and barometric pressure. The thing that is still messing with my head is precipitation. I know the day before it's going to rain, then it rains and then it takes a day to feel better. That's three days out of my life. Weather migraines are really bad, anybody else have them? In sure lots of us do.… read more
