Headache's and migranes?

Posted , 8 users are following.

Morning ladies.

im experiencing more headaches and migranes than usuall?

i have been to a doctor and ran through loads of tests and was stumped as to why I was getting these?

i suffer with migranes and have medication with these but the headaches?

ive not really had so many lately?

i drink plenty of water and eat fairly healthy BUT iam in peri soooo wondering if this was the reason?

i usually start with pain in my back or neck which then migrate to either a full blown migrane then subsides to a headach

is this normal when in peri ? Any advice /help of any ladies would be a massive help?

    hi shelly, migraines were my first real peri symptom without knowing I was in peri, if that makes sense.  Doctors did not tell me that it might be start of peri but I knew they were hormonal.  I used to get the odd migraine, maybe one a year or less before they hit hard about 5 years ago.  It started with migraine maybe 3 times a year, the following year every 3 months, then increased to one a month, then two a month.  it got to a stage where I could no longer blame any triggers, I was only told that I was in peri last year when other symptoms hit and my FSH levels were checked, after five years suffering with increasing migraine frequency.   I may get one a month now, but sometimes I don't get one.  But they are definitely not as frequent now.

    I have been really irritated with headaches lately.  I dont drink or do anything else which would particularly aggravate them. I drink plenty of water, take recommended vitamins etc. but I often wake up with a headache which is really hard to shake off. I keep trying to not take pain killers, but at some point in the day, when the headache is still there, I end up doing so.

    I agree - any advice about this one would be really good.

    Many thanks to you both,

    metamorphed and ursulauce62,

    yes advice is certainly needed of someone!!!!!!

    i suffer with migranes and have done for 20plus years, BUT ...........

    just lately I'm suffering with a lot of headaches though I think it's because im in peri?!!!!

    i can tolerate headaches BUT sometimes they can become worse and end up with a migrane......

    i drink plenty of water and eat healthy, I cannot think what I'm doing wrong all I can think is it's another symptom of peri,

    Just when I get it puts a damper on my day and carnt really do things that I want to do ( no energy)?

    It sounds like carotidynia. I too suffer. It starts as a pain in my left carotid artery region of my neck, then I get a really bad headache during ovulation and my period, incidentally the neck pain disappears when period arrives. It's all very odd this peri malarkey x
