Most of the time I get migraines on the right side of my head. I’m used to these and have a higher pain tolerance for these. However, if I start to get one on the left side of my head (aka, the bad side or the wrong side) I know I’m in for trouble!!!!! Which side is your bad side?
Do you put anything extra or buy water with extra ingredients to help with your migraines. They always tell us to drink plenty of water. So I drink a ton of water and then always buy some that has electrolytes in it. Lately I’ve been gagging down 20 drops of Trace Minerals added to my electrolyte water in the morning. It has a slight metallic taste to it. So I do it like a shot and then chase it with anything that tastes decent! It could be that I’m just having a good week, but I’ve been pretty decent this week since starting this. I got the Trace Minerals here.
I think we have all done this, pretending your well. My standard answer is that I’m fine, even though I’m in pain. Now if it’s a two Imitrex and lay down migraine, I’m not pretending I’m well. However most days I can have a migraine and pretend like nothing is wrong. How good are you at that? Now that is acting!!!!
Here are some articles saying that thyroid issues CAN also cause migraines.
Excellent article about headaches and migraine frequency not being low enough. I have about 5-7 migraines a month and about 3 to 4 headaches a week. Which isn’t enough for most conventional and non-conventional treatments to be given to me. I only suffer most of the month with either 5-7 migraines and on average 3 headaches (roughly 15-18 a month NOT counting the migraines). So sorry, out of luck for insurance covering anything else for me!
