Another thing that sucks…

migraines…they really suck.

I am a headache kinda girl. I get headaches when I’m too hot, too cold, too hungry, too tense, too hormonal (sorry, was that an overshare?). I also get headaches when strong weather fronts pass through (mostly starting from sinus pressure) and sometimes I get headaches for no particular reason. Go me.

I’ve seen quite a few other fragile x mom’s comment about migraines and headaches too. Is this a carrier thing because I’m still waiting to “grow out of it” as my doctor once told me I would. Yeah, I do find some truly awesome doctors…

    I hate to hear that someone else has the same problem I do. I can live with most of the headache stuff.. but as of late the migraines have gotten out of control. my doctor told me that I would suffer from them for the rest of my life.. sadly

    I also have headaches almost daily, and eat excedrin like candy….by “grow out of it” I wonder if he meant menopause? I have seen women that have migraines all their life that stop at menopause. Hey, that FXPOI might come in handy here, lol. Xoxoxoxo

    As a nurse I can’t prescribe medication but I can prescribe Chammomile tea, a hot bath, chocolate and a glass of wine during some rare YOU time 🙂

    I think he did mean menopause but I was 18 and he probably didn’t want to go there. So maybe I SHOULD be hoping these nightsweats are FXPOI?

    I went on a gluten free diet with Jacob and it’s helped…no more headaches, less muscle cramps, less fatigue, less joint pain.

    Well I’m 41, have nightsweats so bad I think my little guy has peed the bed (nope it’s me) and the headaches have become more intense since the menopause hit 🙂 Just another thing to be “blessed by Fragile X” with I guess :(…..

    My doctor ran hormone levels and tries to tell me I wasn’t menopausal. I don’t know what else to call it then when your cycle stops for months, you sweat for no reason, your skin feels like it’s on fire and you get so emotional that you cry when you see a baby. Men. Who cares what the hormone levels say..maybe it was a good day that one day. All I can say is men- pause, men-tal illness, it all begins with men lol.

    I do hope you feel better. I went through menopause very early and my migraines went away…so maybe, there’s some hope along that line! Otherwise, the hot bath and glass of wine sounds good. Good luck!
