Migraines 'r Us

Growing up I never got migraines, both sibs & DM did though.

As I've gotten older I've started getting them, DS gets them as well


I recently got one unlike my "normal" migraines - the symptoms were the same/similar to a stroke. The ER rocked (I found out the "code stroke" means you bypass the wait at the ER).

Re: Migraines 'r Us

I apparently got a "complex" migraine - I've just had "normal" migraines before.

The complex had a fluctuating low level pain (between 1-4 on a scale of 1-10), an odd sensation from my eye to a point on my upper lip, and slight numbness in 3 fingers.

I'm going to need to research the different types of migraines, how they present and compare the symptoms to stroke - I don't want to run to the ER every time.

If it happens again - I'll try to repeat of few of the "tests" they did on me (swallow, the ability to preform certain tasks)

Re: Migraines 'r Us

no, and this one ended up lasting for days - the pain was low level (1-4 on a scale of 1-10) but headache meds didn't seem to help. After I drank 2 cokes it went away
