Re: Facial Migraines not Sinus Infection
Just to put my 2¢ in as a life long migrainuer. I have had migraines with aura since I was 13, I'm now 49. Other that Basilar migraines, I have all of them. Hormone (estrogen), food allergies (chocolate, etc.) sinus (i have polyps and living in florida the bp is always on the move), etc. But the worst one to date, my Neuro called a Trigeminal (spelling?) migraine. It affected the trigeminal nerve in the face. Granted it's been several years since I had it and I will take any other type of migraine headache over that one to this day. It felt like someone was slicing my face with a dull razor blade over and over again. Mine runs from my temple to the corner of my mouth. It was by far the worst I have ever experienced. Nothing worked including morphine and predisone. I can't take triptans due to side effects so I had to suffer through it for about 2 days before it started to let up a bit and then I still had a h/a for a few more days.
Anyway, it is just an idea and another option to peruse.....
Life is like email...sometime you just don't get it..
