I've suffered from migraines for the past 7 years or so of my life. It all started in college. My neurologist diagnosed me w/ a combo of migraines and tension headaches. It took over a year of trying different medications, physical therapy, massages to figure out what worked for me. My migraines would last days and weeks at a time. It was horrible. I learned to live w/ it and went about my daily routine, working (I was a teacher) through migraines. When it got really bad, I got sent home. When I got pregnant with my daughter 3 years ago, the migraines slowly started going away. I had a few bad ones in the beginning. I even remember coming home early from work one day and my hubby leaving work early to take care of me. After the first trimester, my migraines went away. I think I got a few, very mild ones towards the end of the pregnancy, but once my daughter was born, I hadn't gotten them again.
I think in the past 2 1/2 years I've gotten very few migraines, all of them tolerable. When I got pregnant this time, the migraines came back. This past week has been awful! I've been completely useless, so much pain. Even sleep is hard, I wake up crying in pain through the night... I've been taking tylenol, but it only helps me survive. I am seeing my doctor today so we'll see what he has to say.
Did anyone suffer from migraines while pregnant? I don't know what to do.
