I suffer from cluster migraines, they usually last three days. It generally starts with feeling a bit off for a day, before it hits. I generally suffer with pain at the back of my head, and pain on one side of my head, usually my left but sometimes my right. I am extremely light sensitive, and noise sensitive also. I have extreme nausea and vomiting. The migraine totally stops me in my tracks as I cannot function normally for days. The migraine slowly makes its way through my head. If it starts on the left over a three-day period it will progress to the right before it goes, with vomiting included. I usually try to sleep through the event. I had six episodes within a month, each lasting about three days. My doctor now has me on a daily tablet of Relpax, which has been so far successful in preventing the headache part of the migraine, but I am still suffering all other migraine symptoms. Vomiting, nausea, light and noise sensitivity… Instead of the headaches, my head feels off, blurry, woozy, dizziness and generally unwell, still lasting 3 days.

I have migraine headaches for a while now I can't stand lights, noises, stress, frustration, and certain types of foods. I can't sleep with my head low. My head has to be high. I have taken different types of medication and I am having the same problem. I wonder what I can do to stop these headaches.

Starts with a general feeling of tiredness over a couple of days then get migraine aura (usually on waking. At same time as aura, develop dull headache and start to suffer stomach cramps. Paracetomol usually relieves some of the headache. Stomach cramps come and go but worsen for a time and get really bad nausea periodically. These symptoms last from 3-5 days, lessening gradually in severity. Also present light sensitivity, fatigue, blurry vision, and noise sensitivity.
