I am one of those lucky bastiches who has them thanks to an old injury ( neck ) as well as blood pressure. I have a kit assembled for knocking them down including drugs to cure the nausea and potent pain and blood pressure meds. They always start with light sensitivity and an aura thats like when you have been in the public pool all day and your eyes are a little burned from chlorine. These migraines are no joke because the side effects can be deadly. I have an auto injector of Sumatriptan that gets used on the first sign and that flat out knocks the thing out.
Sadly I have to forgo coffee and smokes because they both cause vaso constriction making it worse.
If your migraines continue its important to see the doctor as they can be related to everything from a brain tumor to hormone issues like too much estrogen from having low T. Good luck and thanks for the understanding of migraineurs.
