Migraines

I have suffered with migraines since I was young. I get 1 per month, they last 3 days and I am floored. Latter I think they are linked with ovulation and my period. The last couple of months they have been getting worse. 3 months ago it lasted 4 days, the last 2 months they have lasted 6 days and I have been ill. The only time it doesn't hurt is when I am sleeping.

I'm 40, had 2 laps & novasure but still get a tiny period every month. Don't take the pill and haven't had a mirena for over a year & a half.

Had full blood tests today as cant shake the fatigue and I am getting pain all over (legs, knees, hips, lower back, shoulder, neck, groin, usual endo pain) along with daily nausea.

Anyone else had anything similar?

Hi, thanks for your reply. My triggers are chocolate and cheese so I totally cut these out my diet. I am also gluten free/mostly alcohol free (with the exception of special occasions).

I have signed up to Lara Briden's FB and newsletters. Very interesting about the B6 and mag and I will look in to this.

Many thanks! x

Yep, plagued by migraines too - which usually go hand in hand with bowel/tummy troubles, and happen at least once a month. So far I'm laid up for no more than a day but afterwards I feel like I have a nasty bout of flu - shakes, sore skin, nausea, joint pain - the only difference being I don't have a cold.

I was diagnosed with ME/CFS after speaking with a GP about the fatigue, and being referred to a specialist, but I'm not sure whether it's all the adeno and possibly endo (awaiting lap at BSGE Centre).

Hope you get some answers!

I don't know if this will help but it never hurt to read. Might help in a certain way.
