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.

Hi Klambert1, seems to me that I remember my daughter's neurologist being concerned on more that one occasion about whether or not she could hear her blood pulsing in her ear. Don't remember what it could signify, but I would definitely suggest telling your doctor about it as soon as possible just to be sure it isn't something dangerous. Good luck.

Yesterday i took a muscle relaxer and some extra strengh tylenol for my migraine that was just getting started. Today I just have that "pounding" pain in one spot, esp when I move. It's not bad but I know it could get worse. I do have neck problems, ruptured disk at 6&7, DDD and slight bulging at 5&6. I had whiplash about 5 yrs ago. I am wondering with fibro, spine problems and TMJ all together, if it's causing my migraines. My neck muscles hurt alot too.
I made an appt with md, esp since I am having the swishing sounds. I just want to make sure it's nothing else going on.

I tell everyone who has a pounding headache to stop their xanthine intake. This means no caffeine or chocolate. Its amazing how many people are addicted to caffeine.
