Please could someone tell me if any of the below sounds like migraines or some other type of headache or anything else entirely.
The reason I ask is the cycle of my headaches. They can come and go fairly swiftly or last for days but I have other symptoms which are not normal headache symptoms and they don't feel like a normal headache.
I don't get what aura looks like on Google pictures but my eyes go hazy and feel pressurised. My nose and whole face will hurt with a numb tingling type feeling and tight, I get severe achey ear pain but no sign of infection and when the whole pain goes so does the ear pain. I do get a bit nauseas but not so bad that I'm actually sick. My neck, jaw and shoulders hurt a lot but again this can disappear when the pain goes as a whole.
I also start yawning a lot, not from tiredness, it seems more like my body trying to get something out. The yawning is one of the first signs that I know things are gonna get a lot worse. My heart also feels like it's struggling to beat or that it's skipping beats. It's not quite palpitation but more heaviness . As they day goes on I get more fatigued and other parts of my body start to ache and feel a bit tingly. Like the bloods stopped getting round properly.
I have had mri before and apart from pineal cyst all looked normal, I wAs at one point given a possible migraine diagnosis and put on topomax but it made me feel terribly flat so I stopped.
I know 100% that the weather really affects me and generally if it gets muggy, stormy, rainy I'll get this attack, I can feel the weather change in my head. I haven't managed to connect any other things yet.
If anyone can relate and tell me if anything helps them and what their diagnosis is I'd love to know what kind of headache this is and how to treat it.
