So I know that migraines can change over your lifetime but mine have changed so drastically in the past little while it’s really making me anxious / scared.
The MAV / dizziness is one thing. I’ve been dizzy for 4 months now and it’s been long enough that I can tell myself “it’s just dizziness”, though even that still makes me anxious somedays. But now the migraine headaches are feeling drastically different as well and it’s getting pretty scary.
Yesterday I woke up with a full blown migraine and the headache was more severe than usual. I took Advil and the headache lasted into the afternoon until It went away. Then the headache came back only a few hours later and got very intense and lasted all through the night. Took more Advil but barely slept at all last night because of it.
Today the pain is gone but the dizziness is awful (I only had mild dizziness during the pain all day yesterday). I just took 0.5mg lorazepam as that usually reduces the dizziness a bit and helps ease my anxiety over being dizzy so I’m praying it kicks in soon.
This migraine has not been “normal” for me, but is it normal to have migraine pain that lasts over 24 hours? Should I be concerned that my migraines have become so much worse? Or is this just the nature of the beast?
