Hi all ,
Just looking for opinions or shared experiences. I have had I guess what is called "classic" migraine since I was about 11 (I am now 32) I get a spreading visual aura, then nausea, light sound sensitivity and pounding head. Usually I fall asleep but this scares me b/c I can sleep for a very long time and it feels like I pass out more than sleep. I wake up feeling like I have been cracked in the skull.
Recently my migraines have gotten more severe, sometimes I get the aura, it will go away and come back a few hours later. They are also lasting long, I had one last week for 5 days! Is that even possible?! 5 Days? Also I experience some numbness in my hands.
I have never been to a neuro but only a GP and have been given triptans that do not work. What works for others? Anyone else have these types of symptoms and how did you treat it? Luckily I do not have them frequently so I don't think I need daily meds.
