I'm wondering if there is anyone whose migraines are affected by fumes and other smells. As far back as I can remember, if anyone comes anywhere near me smoking a cigar I get like a ping in my head and then the migraine starts and I have to take to my bed. Within an hour or so after the start of the migraine I will start vomiting. This can continue for three or four days, which leaves me weak and dyhydrated and I am unable to hold down food and drink. It then takes another few days for me to feel well again.
I get a similar effect being around people wearing heavy perfumes and from petrol/diesel fumes, particularly in slow moving traffic. There are other things that affect me like the smell of burning garden rubbish. It all sounds strange but I wonder if other migraine suffers are affected in a similar way.
I have been invited to a wedding in Mexico next year and I would love to go but as cigars are common there I am a little apprehensive.
A forum member reported the great results she has had from magnesium glycinate, which has left her migraine free for over 14 months. I started taking these a month or so ago and although I've had migraines since, I am hoping that eventually they willl help.
Looking forward to hearing from anyone with a similar experience.
