    Yes, this sounds like a migraine. I get this from time to time. I get the jaw pain, headache, Nausea, sensitivity to lights and I see dark images to my periphery. I take an Alleve and try to get rest. The worst one was when my head hurt so bad that there was like this flash of little lights that kind of flickered before my eyes. It was the most alarming thing in the world. Hormones are the culprit because I never had this before peri menopause hit.

    Have you tried methylated B vitamins or alpho lipoic acid? They are supposed to help with nerve pain. B vitamins and zinc also are needed to synthesize hormones. Magnesium is also good.

    Bio-identical progesterone can help big-time with PMS symptoms too. You can get it at most health food stores. 

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Ladies, I suffer with migraine aura....feel sick...strange numbness everywhere. ..panic feeling. ...light sensitivity. ...slight palpitations. ..extra tired....tight neck and base of head. ...then blind spot followed by zigzag brightly coloured circles...sometimes followed by mild headache but mostly no headache and usually at least one day migraine hangover........had this on and off all of life but got worse when I was at the end of pregnancy to as many as one maybe two per day (hormone related ) and I was  almost 40 and sure was also onset perimenopause too..All hormone related and common at this time....I find....chocolate. ...Orange juice and cheese make it worse.....skipping meals...not drinking enough fluids or getting enough sleep. .oh and stress. ..not a lot of hope for us........Apparently botox helps and I heard there is a new treatment that works. ...Other than that as I have found the further on in this journey I get the better they are from one a day to perhaps four a month....
