I started getting migraines about 4-5 years ago, around the time I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I also have suffered from TMJ since I was little. I am 40 now. I wanted to know if migraines cause a pounding or pulsating sensation on one side of the head that becomes worse with movement? When my migraines start and if I don't try to stop what I am doing and lay down, the left side of my head just pounds. It is so annoying and painful. It's always on the left side. I also have eye pain, (both eyes) esp with movement, nausea, and sometimes sweating. I know my headache is getting bad if the pounding starts.
Also my fibromyalgia causes me to be sensitive to the heat. If I am out to long I start to hurt a little, and become exhausted. The sun or heat also can trigger a migraine. Anyone else experience this? Thanks for any help. I am going to make an appt with my md. I had a brain mri done a few years ago and it was negative for anything. I have noticed that if I lay on my left side or have my earphones in and walk I can hear my blood pulsing in my ear. The same side the bad pain is on.
Thanks for any help.
