When you hear someone say they get migraines, you probably think of headaches, really bad headaches. But in fact, the symptoms associated with migraine disorders are widely varied. What can some of those symptoms feel like? It felt like my skull couldn’t accommodate the balloon that someone was blowing up inside of my head. Instead of just the sensitivity to light, I was now getting sensitivity to sound and to feeling. My headaches affected me at school because I missed a lot of the papers we were doing.
It affected my playtime because when they were being loud i couldnt play because it was too loud. And the one time that I had a migraine so severely they did not know if it was a migraine or a stroke. Very scary situation. The spinning sensation occurred whenever I moved my head. Even slight movement like this or like this. There’s a squishiness in my ear that never leaves, and I also noticed that I smell things that other people don’t smell and I taste things that are have a odd taste to them,.
That are not recognized by others. Recently Ive been experiencing unexplained odors. Theyre very strange and they range from smells of exhaust to sweet smells of chocolate or of popcorn. I would pull into my driveway, get out of the car, and I would have a feeling that I was still moving or I would even look at the car and think maybe my car was rolling. I did recently find out that aphasia could be an aspect of this atypical migraine symptom,.
And my husband and i almost have a joke about it. i’ll be speaking, and i’ll just raise my eyebrows and point to him, and he’ll say the word I can’t find. I get carsick a lot and it makes my head hurt and my stomach hurt. Im Kateys mother and we both suffer from migraines. I also experienced carsickness as a child. There is a family history with migraines in the family, mainly the women. I am still left with the same problems, the same ear pain, the same pressure, the same.
Vestibular disturbance. the antibiotics did nothing. I believe I’ve seen three or four different Ear, Nose, and Throat s who have sent me for Xrays, MRIs, CAT scans I’m not sure what all tests, but they’ve all come back negative. By chance he said, Have you tried magnesium? First I was so surprised that he was taking me seriously, that I just started to laugh. I started taking Nortriptyline, and that helped for a while.
I’ve been on the topamax now for 6 months and i’ve had no sinus symptoms whatsoever, and I can’t tell you how much that has changed my life. The other thing that I was really interested in was the neurophysical therapy. I did that for about 3 months and that has been to date the most effective intervention that Ive done so far. So it got to the point where I can wear socks, I dont have to think twice of which is the worst bra, which is the best bra. I can actually get dressed, um, the sensitivity.
Is i would say 95% gone. One of the things I’m learning about auditory processing disorder with migraines and other symptoms is also the fact that depression is linked with some of the symptoms. And to know that my symptoms both collaborate together and they’re really one symptom is giving hope that maybe the ear pain will go away, the ear ringing will go away, the pressure in my sinuses will go away, the headache pain will go away, and I’ll get a boost!.
Swollen Glands the signs and symptoms
One of the most common reasons that i see people in my consulting room is because they’re worried about swollen gland, and usually they’re talking about swollen glands in their necks. I suspect the reason so many people worry about swollen glands is that they know that they can be a symptom of cancer. Well here’s the good news:.
They almost always mean something much less scary. So let’s think a little bit about what they are so we can understand why you get them, and what you need to look out for basically your glands, or lymph glands or lymph nodes are kind of like stations on a complicated railway network.
And the railway lines are your lymph channels. now those lymph channels are filled with a fluid called lymph, and they carry the white blood cells which help your body to fight off infection around your body if you get an infection in one part or if your body spots an invader it activates your body’s immune system,.
Your defense mechanisms, and they send white cells rushing to the spot. They’ll congregate at that Station, that lymph node, and that’s why glands swell. If your slim you may be able to feel normal size glands actually they’re about the size of a pea or a bit smaller and some of them are just underneath the skin whereas others.
Are buried deep inside the inside of your tummy and inside your chest but those ones that you can feel, are mostly in the armpits in the groin and round the head and neck now, you have title tracks of lymph glands which go behind there and a little group in front of your ears you have more underneath the chin and yet more.
Just above your collar bone here. we also have a chain which goes round the back of your scalp, right at the bottom there. so there are lots and lots of glands, and actually if you feel one, it may not be enlarged at all however by far the most common reason for lymph glands to get swollen is infection, and that does cause enlargement. Kids who have a lot.
Of tonsillitis or sore throats, their glands will be going up and down like that all the time. If you have an infection it’ll often make your glance well very quickly because your body is rushing very quickly to the spot those glands will not only be large, but then also be tender now which glands will be swollen will depend on where the infection is.
So for instance your whole leg cranes to the limp glands in your groin, so an infection in your toe could cause swollen glands in your groin. Very much less likely, breast cancer, or an infection in your breast, drains to the lymph glands in your armpit so it could cause inflammation if those ones there.
