sorry ,I didnt preview so I didnt fix the mistakes in my post,:)
I am glad it helped some. I know water sounds weird, BUT it really has helped me deal with it. I hope alls well
Hi Leigh Ann
Thank You for your imput. To be blunt about the Ibu`s ( Aleve wasn`t invented yet, FYI ), I had thought about ending these migrains for good quite a few times thru the years, SO I figured that a handfull of Ibu`s was definitely the LESSER of the 2 evils, ya think???
I did go to doctors a couple times and on all of those occations the doctors were clueless and I wasn`t going to let them PRACTICE anything on me when they had NO idea about anything EXCEPT giving me chemical`s some pharmacuetical company ( that is only interested in profits and blocking any and all alternative medicines that cut into those profits ) recomends regardless of adverse affect`s.
I am having fun with these Emo`s !
To recap the migrain /water thing;
I get a very small bright light for a very short time,( if I am not paying attention I might not noticed it) and it will be gone as quick as it appears then after a few minutes the little blurry spot (aka. "Blot") can be noticed( in the old days ,my life would be put on hold and soon the dreaded nightmare of pain would begin ! ! ! ).
That little blot seems to develope into a wormy type of light show (rainbow spectrum, if you will that swells untill in inhibits my vision and kind of strobes like the shadow of a ceiling fan/light(I hate those fan`s,sometimes it seems like the migraine and in reality it`s only the stupid fan that I had`nt noticed untill then ).
When that whole process is over and I am back to being able to see uninhibited again ,( in the old days I would be running to a very dark and quiet place that I could spend up to the next 2 days at this point) about 30 minutes or so after the site thing goes away the pain began , the dreaded migraine pain ! !
I find that if I gulp water as soon as I notice the symptoms, (please understand that I will notice the little bright light more times than not,but if I do , by chance ,miss the light for what ever reason,I WILL NOT miss the blurry spot, my brain has learned to notice even the very very beginning of that symptom( I have even jumped the gun on many occations and will wash down an Aleve with mass water then find it was a smudge on my sunglasses or window !hahahaha)),I figure on those occations that taking the Aleve needlessly would help the normal everyday aches and pains and I am pretty sure that drinking water in big quantities is a very good thing in most cases.In any case I have found that drinking water as describe has made the Aura part not only speed up(most times) from up to an hour ordeal to as little as 15 minutes or so , it also helps the visual part be less intense, and it has helped to make the intollerable pain not only majorly tollerable (small headache) but in most cases no pain at all.
It`s the better safe than sorry thing, I think .
I have found that maybe chocolate seems to have a part in the cause, but not always, and I seem to have a lack of patience and easy to loose my temper the day before I get one, so I am not sure if that is a cause or a symptom ?!?!?
It does seem that the migraine pain will start on the opposite side of my head from where I first notice the Blot.?!?!?!
I Thank the powers that be, for this website because untill I found this website NOBODY I ever talked to or tried to explain these Aura thing`s to ,had a clue to what I was talking about, and now I write to poeple that not only totally understand, but help me to know that I am not alone in this. I can not even try to describe what that does for me in my everyday life.
Bottom line is, Water is my saviour ! Water has made a terrible, terrifying and uncontrollable thing that more than not made me want to be dead, into a small ,not dreaded, inconvienence of that day. I have not lost any work time to these Aura thing`s in over 10 years and probably closer to 15 years, I now have a life that I can count on everyday , I can count on vacation plans ,sex, relationships,hobbie time......etc, to not be effected by the dreaded Blot, well not very much anyway .
I am going to start a website that is exclusive to Aura headaches, alternative remedies and solutions and see what happens and who might get some result producing results.
Do you know the difference between a "classic" migraine and a "commom" migraine?
Hi Leigh Ann
Actually I do not. I have not bothered to define my migrains, I have had my hands full with just trying to describe it, not to mention deal with them. I could use that information for my site tho if you might like to share it ! Thank You
Thank You and yes, of course it helps.I have no experience with the common migraine at all. I do know some people that have persistent migraines and they had no clue to what was happening to me. Doctors give me a brain scan, tell me that it looks fine and sends me on my way with Ty3 . I never took them, they make me very sick,haha.
I guess the classic migraine people are kind of lucky, atleast we see it coming. I have learned alot about my migraine on this website ! I`m glad I found it.
HAHA, yes you are definitely correct on the subject investigation before anything else,thing, haha. I did not want to say too much about it on here, cause I know this is not a business advertisement area,haha. I will say that it is more of a p2p nfo site. I will put the nfo online with some important links and let the people on it put what nfo and help they might like to share, or they can submit a site for another link to nfo.That`s the basic idea !
This something worth trying. I drink water all day long but don't guzzle it by any means. I will try it though. Thanks for the suggestion.
You are very welcome ! All I can say is that it has worked many many times for me. I swear by it, and "Airborne" is the wonder cure for colds and flues and the only preventive product worth a s*^# on the market today
I am very soory it took me so long to reply to your message, I am developing a few websites and it seems that the days are flying by.
I have many goose bumps after reading your message because , first I have found that people with the Aura Migraines are way more likely to have Parents or Grandparent that had Heart Disease. Well My Grandfather had approx.25 heart attacks,5 the first time, 1 at home and 4 or so on the way to the hospital and this type of situation happened quite a few times till he stopped taking meds. and had a fatal heart attack and My father(Rest his great soul)Passed away due to misdiagnoses from the doctor and he was having situation that are very very similar to what you describe.
The doctor(practicing medicine) told him that the chest pain was because his back(spine) was out of alignment so bad that it was projecting pain through his chest so he advised a my Father that a chiropractor visit was needed. This was without any X-rays at all. My Dad went home, made a chiro appointment, layed on the couch to rest and never woke up.
Medical examiner said it was from 75% clogging in 1 artery and 90% in another so when he was tired it was from lack of circulation and when he layed down on his side he pinched the arteries so they completely stopped any circulation and passed away. He was experiencing (spells as he called it)just as you have described. My Dad was 6'1" 350lbs, did I mention that???I think that the heart should have been checked first but I dont practice medicine, I operate heavy equipment so what do I know ????
We need Doctors that are passed the practicing stage and are concidered professional health care advisors, I mean, I could read a bunch of books and pass a bunch of test`s and start practicing medicine. In my field of work a person is an Apprentise till that person is done PRACTICING and graduates to being a PROFFESSIONAL
The doctor`s name is dr.daley, he was PRACTICING medicine in the Monterey area of California, he is presently awaitin extradition from Brazil, he was convicted of almost 150 cases of CHILD MOLESTATION, he ran during trial, was tracked around the world from Nfo his wife gave authorities.Yes, if your wondering, I was arrested a few days after my dads funeral for assault and battery on him, it started when I dragged him over the counter and proceeded to knock everything down in his waiting room,behind the counter, most of his examining rooms and last but not least his office with him and I am sure that his head and business was probably never the same again. It was very well worth it !
I am hoping that all that I wrote will help you to maybe get a full heart and circulation examination just incase anyway.
