Hello everyone!
Here we go, since I can remember my migraines have always been on the left side, but for the last month or so they are happening on the right side.  Should I worry about this? have any one experience the same thing?
Thank you,

Hello Veronica,
I don't have any experience with that type of migraine, and I can't tell you what to do. But I can advise you to go to the doctor whenever you experience unusual changes in your headaches. He/she may want to run some tests just to make sure everything is alright. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Best wishes,

Always a good idea to get checked out as Liz said, but if it is any comfort, mine did change sides on me after many years, and then changed again to encompass both sides at the same time, and nothing serious was going on according to an MRI, so a change does not necessarily indicate anything terrible. Our migraine brains just sometimes like to change things up. :)

I suffered for a great many years from Migraines but never had them switch from the right, any change like that get checked ASAP
Good Luck

What I have found when my pain changes to the other side or is a different kind of headache this means that I am having a reaction to something or I am some other illness.  I have had this change quite a few times, with different medicines, with illness, etc.  Any new medications, new foods, stress?  If absolutely nothing is new and there is no illness, I would definitely discuss with your nuero or GP.
