I’ve always suffered with severe migraines (always end up in A&E) but not too often once every 1-2 years but lasted 2 weeks until I got IMIGRAN Nasal Sprays. However over the past 12 months I’ve been getting cluster more milder migraines.
Over the last 6 months I can’t even tie my hair up without triggering a migraine, but I’ve realised it Allodynia. It’s now so bad and constant I’m not sure what I can do. Usually an immigran nasal spray helped but it doesn’t won’t go. I’ve sachets and pills but they’re not working either
Does anyone else get bad migraines and what have you found worked for you? And can hypothyroidism cause migraines?
FYI on ALLODYNIA:
Allodynia. Migraineurs often suffer from cutaneous allodynia – that is, sensitivity and/or pain when the skin is touched. Most common in women, it often comes during the headache stage of a migraine attack (if there is a headache at all), but for many people it comes before, and is a kind of "warning signal". The skin becomes so sensitive, that it may feel like your "hair hurts". Running a comb through your hair can be excruciating.
