“Exactly. Migraines can be triggered by things as varied as changes in barometric pressure, hormonal surges (like some women who get them on the first day of their period), caffeine, alcohol, stress... the list goes on and on.”
“Exactly. When I had my first migraine as a teenager, it freaked out my mom because i couldn't remember the right words for things. They did a cat scan to rule out anything bad in my brain. Based on my subsequent migraine events, they diagnosed me with classical migraines, Thankfully, I only have them about once a year. When they do come, i go straight to bed and try to get to sleep before they full-blown.”

“Imitrex or Amerge may help - they worked for me.
I never knew until a few years ago that it is not advisable to just ride out the attacks by going to bed and suffering until they go away on their own - which can take days.
The pain of migraines is caused by the extreme contraction of blood vessels in the brain. Over the years, the extreme contracting and relaxing of the blood vessels can eventually weaken the walls of the blood vessels and can lead to brain anuerisms or strokes.
It is better for long-term brain health to find and use medications which stop the attacks before they turn into full-blown migraines. IF you can afford the meds, that is. They are relatively new and not cheap.”
“As a migraine sufferer, I can tell you this DOES happen to me almost every time I have a migraine. There are different types of migraines. I have "Classical Migraines" which come with a bunch of fun, stroke-like symptoms. I get a visual aura at onset, along with temporary numbness on one side, usually my arm, on the opposite side of my body as the headache. i also have the verbal confusion, where I'll try to talk about something but use the wrong words. That's why when I feel a migraine coming on, I go straight to bed and don't talk to anyone!”

“So how to you explain the huge smile on her face the entire time? I've had migraines for 15 years, I know that you don't smile when you have a migraine. Your body is overcome with pain and can only focus on it.
I think she's been misdiagnosed.”

“Same here. It was very scary the first time it happened and I was relieved when the neurologist said it was a migraine.”
