Re: migraines when you are in your mid 30's

Yes it is... I am 35 now and my first was when I was 32. As I get older it seems I get more symptoms, like I will get tingling in my head as well as seeing bright flashes of lights (star bursts). I get the migraines with aurora (visuals) I HATE IT!!!! So far for me it seems I get them just after my period or pressure change in the weather. I read up on the headaches and everything I read says migraines usually diminish with age (God I pray that's true, I never wanted to be older until I read that)...
Anyway, keep us posted, and good luck to you...
God bless

I also began getting migraines in my mid 30's- likely due to hormonal changes I experienced with age. When they first started, these headaches typically began 3 days into my period and lasted only 3 days. I had my first child at 36, had a mild migraine at the time I would have gotten my period, and then was migraine free for the remainder of my pregnancy. After having 2 kids, I took birth control pills to treat endometriosis and get migraines at different points of my cycle depending on the type of birth control pill I'm using. Now in my mid 40's, I still get migraines at the same time each month and they are more disruptive. My doctor prescribed nortriptyline, an antidepressant, to mediate pain. My situation is complicated by a previous head injury/damage to tissue in my neck and back where the migraine begins. I also experience sinus headaches during my migraines. Wierd!!! After watching a program about migraines on PBS, I realize there is not one singular cause of migraines, rather, multiple triggers which affect severity. Something to keep in mind. Good Luck.
