 I am new and have been getting what my allergist calls referred migraine pressure with my hay fever symptoms. I have never had migraines, but with my allergy I get intense sinus pressure that causes ear tub dysfunction. When the pressure is intense I get one sided head pressure that also affects my right arm (weird pressure feeling too). It is always my right side, sometimes I get a sharp pain above that eye before the pressure, it can last for several hours and then it goes away to pop up the next day, same time, same place. My CT scan was normal and my sinus CT. Does this sound like migraine? Thanks

Welcome to Healing Well. Have you talked to a Neurologist at all about this? It is difficult to say if this is actually migraine or not. I do not have any medical training and can only speak from my own experience. However, there are some things that could fit migraine and some I am unsure about, so would suggest you speak to your Doctor or a Neurologist.

I have Allergic Rhinitis and when it is bad it can bring on a migraine attack, it might be interesting to explore the if there is a direct link between Migraine and Allergy in that way - I am not referring to food sensitivities here, just where if affects the upper respitory tract!

Please let us know how you get on.

Take care
