Sudden attack of migraines

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi. I'm 51 and used to suffer with migraines when I was pregnant. Last October I had a spell of migraines with aura that lasted about a week. Then nothing until last Friday when I got one out of the blue. I've now had one nearly every day since. As soon as I get the aura I take painkillers and manage to control the pain. Just wondering if anyone else has attacks that last for days and also wondering if it could be hormone related due to my age?

    Dear Linda

    I never suffered from migraines and when I hit 51 I had a bout of migraine auras and sometimes head pain. They ceased for abit and then last year started up again when I was 53. I mainly get the auras with mild head pain. I think it must be related to our age as, like I said, I never had these before. My eyes are more light sensitive than what they were before and I suffer from dry eyes /excess watery eyes too

    I get about 3 or 4 a month but have had as many as six. I think light can trigger them.

    Hello Linda,

    I don't think age has anything to do with it since I went through my menopause when I was 30 years old, and now I'm 47 and had this attacks of Hemiplegic migraine with attacks paralyze side of the rigth face and body and vomiting with dizziness spells.

    The symptoms last for days with me, but 1st of all no stress and relaxing has help me a lot...

    Hope u feel better hu 🍓🍒🍓

    Thank you to all of you for replying. They give me panic attacks because I get scared but the doctors gave me beta blockers and at least they have calmed me down a bit x
