Thanks for the thread, but most will not really understand it, while thinking a "headache" is in relation to an actual migraine. It's frustrating as
Hell whenever someone tells me they have a "migraine", mistakenly. Most of the time it's BS and just a bad headache. (in their case)
I've had them since I was 12, and I remember the first one. My pinky and my lip went numb simultaneously, and it moved to my throat and made me gag.

Rarely, I still do get that type of "numb" migraine. But mostly now, mine start with blindness, or "aura" migraine. I can't see anything when this
happens, it's something that happens quite often, and I get very disoriented. It's a true disruption of life.
Imagine looking through warped glass, then imagine it growing within your field of vision and lasting for about 30 minutes. If I am stressed during
this time, it will repeat itself all day in 30 minute increments until I am able to lie down and relax for at least two hours. After that time period,
the headache finally comes. When the headache finally comes, I am absolutely mentally relieved! Nothing is worse than being blind and disoriented IMO,
or even numb, gagging because my throat is numb. It's #ing horrific.The headache at least means that nightmare has finally passed...
The headache that finally comes, will then last 24-48 hours. It really sucks, but I have given up hope in finding a doctor or a person that truly
understands it. I am 40 this year, so it's been a long time.
