I too suffer migraines, the worst come with nausea & if I'm lucky involuntary vomit. I say lucky because the pain usually subsides after. I think that since migraines are a vascular issue the vomit acts as a way to release pressure & maybe even lower the body temp. thus helping with the pain by reducing the venous blood flow & pressure.
Background: i have suffered since about
9. Triggers are my monthly menstral cycle, high atmospheric pressure, too much sun, dehydration, wine, perfume, dusty work & shrimp. In highschool i had a migraine for about
3 month straight. It was summer, I've always been bad at monitoring my H2O needs & my dad just passed.
I'm better informed now & don't have them as often. Sometimes i can't tell the difference between a regular headache & a migrane, but when i can feel one i have a coffee and 4 ibuprofen (caffeine works well for me.) But now i'm getting visual effects. Started out with zig zaggy when i looked at mini blinds, twice i've had big blurry patches, and now i can feel my eyes quickly vibrate. Anyone have this eye vibration?
Also sleeping in. I never knew why but someone here mention that it's prob coz of the long stretch without H2O. Makes sense because i usually refer to the feeling in my head as having a "Cheeto" brain, you know all dry & crispy. But i can also feel the change in the weather, like if a Santa Ana weather front comes in during the night i am awaken with a sharp stabbing pain. (Read a recent article about
how in cave days i may have been the weather person that was able to inform the tribe of coming conditions, great)
I've never taken pills, i've heard the only way to stop em was to continually take them. Not a fan of life long slavery to pills (now that i write it, it sounds stupid coz i'd rather be a life long slave to migraines?? Duuh!) Anyone know of meds that can be taken at the onset. I have a heart condition; supraventricular tachycardia (svt) which is not life treatening but i can't have things that wire me, I'll get an extra beat & heart goes at 200 bpm. Any suggestions?
