Since Saturday evening, I have had what feels like a bad headache on the left side of my head, above my left eye. Light bothers me and noise as well. I've taken Firorcet since Saturday night. I've taken 3 pills a day since then. I am leaving work early today because the light, nausea, and throbbing on the side of my head is really bothering me. Is this a migraine? Its different from other migraines I've had. Any insights? Thanks!
p.s. I am also due for my period tomorrow. :(

Hi Heather,

It certainly sounds like migraine. You said it is different from other migraines you have had, in what way is this different, how often do you normally get migraines?

Menstrual Migraine can be particularly painful and difficult to abort. If you are concerned I would suggest that you see your Doctor.

take care
