Hi there. My migraines are ALWAYS behind my left eye. Some days I feel like if I could just remove my eyeball, the pressure would ease up and the migraine would go away. From all the research I have done and according to my neurologist, those of us who are plagued with the monster in our brains, typically have them in the same exact spot every time. It is awful and I feel for you. Just know you're not alone!!View Thread
I have recently been experiencing an irregular heartbeat. By that, I mean my heart starts racing and feels like it skips an average of 4 beats per minute while the "attack" happens. This usually lasts anywhere from 5-15 minutes. Along with this there has been a sharp increase in my migraine attacks. The current monster in my brain has been every other day for a week. The days that I am not hiding in a dark room laying absolutely still, my head feels sore. Could the two be linked and any ideas on what may be going on? I have reduced my caffeine intake to one cup of coffee in the morning and a 20oz bottle of soda midday, trying to see if that will help the heart thing. I'm 39 y/o and do have an appt with my primary care physician on Monday. I just have to make it through the weekend with just one Relpax left. View Thread
