sad  down at the moment with an awful migraine;does anyone know why our systems seem so sensitive that we can & do get these headaches over the stress of good things, too? un-pleasant stress makes more sens, but maybe the body can't tell...what happens to the 'feeling good' endorphins...the headache, etc overrides it? and has anyone ever had the aura/spots , light & sound sensitivity without ever developing the headache? that is what i get more now that i am older;i think(know) that it's all hormonally related...i was gearing myself up an hr. ago cause a headache follows when symptoms are so extreme...nothing;aura disappeared..still sensitive to light & sound but it's fading a bit. i feel so fortunate that i didn't get the headache or nausea!! please, if anyone of u have had this happen, respond, ok? i don't & my doc said she does't know...thanks   hugs, painter(i learned i have something called trigger finger ..arthritis..i am learning a lot from you all & i thanllk you). eyes eyes :-)

Hi Artpaint

Sorry to hear you're getting the headachless migraine's.  I often get aura's without ever getting the headache.  I experience extreme mood changes, sound, light and smell sensitivity.  I can also experience numbness in random parts of my body. Random nerve pain etc...the list goes on.

Many of my migraines (with or without pain) are triggered by stress, good or bad.  It doesn't seem to matter and there is no rhyme or reason to it for me.  I think that I have figured out that I need to keep my whole life consistent to have any success at harboring some control over this disease.  I know there are some postings on this forum regarding positive stressers triggering migraine attacks, but I can't remember the posted topic.

I don't think i'm helping you at all.  But at least you know you're not the only one.  There are many of us that trigger the same way.

Hi Artpainter,

I can never fully work out what triggers my migraines - I know I am sensitive to some foodstuffs, and of course the good stress/bad stress thing. Migraine is a Neurological disease - Neurology embraces the nervous system so one assumes from that a person suffering from such disease has a very sensitive nervous system. I am not a medic and do not pretend to know that much but I am working this out from my own common sense.

I have days when I can feel there is something there (I do not have any aura) but the pain does not take hold! Just my two penneth. Take care Ann.

Hi Artpainter,

Sorry to confuse you. In the USA you would say 'two cents worth' - here in the uk we use pennies and the phrase 'two penneth' is probably a little old fashioned!!!! I am glad I have been able to help you!

Take care Ann.

:-)   :-) eyes dear ann, thanks for reply post;you are the best! all of you at hw are so kind to me, unlike my family;can't tell u how much i appreciate the wonderful change, the support.. i didn't know it would be possible for me to receive this kind of positive support;i was too used to not talking about my illnesses;family got bored & then annoyed...like, "Is that all you can talk about, Judy?".  of course not, but i thought they might care;they do, but in my family we don't acknowledge having emotiond let alone showing them, so hw has saved my life;i just don't have words to tell you all(& god knows i have plenty of words!).thank you, dear ann. :-)
