The reason I am posting this is two fold...#1 I cannot sleep b/c I am experiencing one. #2 Has anyone else ever experienced this?
As a child, they gave me paregoric. It worked.
These are best managed by a neurologist but you should also have a gyn work up to rule out ovarian cysts or other possible issues. Since you are being effected now I would try excedrin migraine to see if you get relief. If you have something like imitrex or relepax I would try it as well. Try to make sure you don't get dehydrated as that seems to worsen the issue and create a cycle.
I haven't been on migraine medication for a couple of years now; I get *maybe* two migraines a year, at this point...thank God! I'm still not feeling great, but it isn't nearly as bad as it was last night. I am able to eat, but still feel blah. Hoping to sleep tonight. Thanks for the suggestions. I need to go to the gyn soon, anyway, so I will talk to her about this.
I swear I love this site. You can learn the most interesting stuff here.
I'm with meaniemouse! The things you didn't know you didn't know!
Dd has these, very hard to cope with. We use heat for her and sleep.
