I'm looking for some advice of people off that have migraine
I'm 33 years old and ive suffered headaches since i was 17 , from 17 years old untill 27 yrs old i had typical migraine.
One sided pounding head pain with dizziness and sensitive to lights and sound and I use to suffer these once a week for 3 days .
At age 28 the headaches changed to near daily headaches , the pain is 80% off the time one sided and 20% off the time whole forehead.
The pains non throbbing unlike before , the pain is more constant but at times with throb only if I don't take pain medications in time .
I do get dizziness still with the headaches but not every time , i o feel sensitive to sound and lights even when the pains very mild .
I've had these headaches now near daily and the pain is mostly mild with 5 days a month off severe headache pain .
I find if I get a neck massage or see a physiotherapy dr it can sometimes get rid off these headaches for a couple off weeks if im very lucky.
My other symptoms are a pins and needles sensation on my face arpund my nose or lips .
Random dizziness and I always am sensitive to bright lights and loud noise.
Sometimes before I get these headaches i feel a intense feeling off increased energy or really fatigured.
In the last few years in having shooting stars in my vision and random black spots in my vision the is happens without a headache ever happening.
I also have a dream like feeling while I have a headache, its like everything seems dreamy and off .
I was diagnosed with chronic migraine when i was 24 but that was when the head pain was typical migraine pain .
I have been diagnosed with disc degenaration of my neck and 2 bone spurs of my neck and also slipping off my vertebra in neck this was found by upright mri 2 years ago .
I'm really confused is this all migrain are my headaches just tension headaches or migraine ?
Are these headaches still migrains even though they are not severe head pain ?
The other symptoms is thispart off these headaches ?
Also I forgot to write i take high strength aspirin for the headaches have done since 17 yrs old and it works very well for me ..
I've never taken any meds out off fear ..
Sorry this is so long im just at a lose i dont know what I'm dealing with ..
