I have fibromyalgia and I usually post in that section, but I wanted to ask a few questions about migraine headaches. I have never technically been diagnosed with migraines, but I know that is what these headaches pretty much are that I get. (and I don't get them to often)
Last night I woke up at 3 am (hubby gets up to go to work at this time) and my heading was hurting, also my neck. I could tell it was going to be bad and after I got up and went to the bathroom it came on full blast then.(from movement I guess) My question is, does anyone get hot flashes with their headaches? I started feeling really hot and clammy. It's a quick hot flash and somewhat burning. I started to get a little sweaty, nauseated, shaky, sensitive to light and sound, and just felt "outta place in my body". The hot flash would come and go. I took some pain meds and had to take a bc, (I know they are not good, but it works fast) Once I laid down, I had some muscle tension all over, and small jerky movements like my muscles wanted to stay tense. lol, hard to explain.
It was bad and it kinda scared me, I almost dialed emergency number. I don't get these to often, but when I do they are bad. It was all I could do not to throw up.
I am not on any meds, pretty good health other than fibro. I had a brain mri done last year to rule out ms and it was negative for anything unusual.
My headache is finally getting better, just feel a slight pounding when I get up and move around. Does migraines leave you feeling weird and tired when it finaly starts going away?
Sorry so many questions, just wanted to know if this was normal migraine stuff.
