Fuzzy feeling in head after migraine

I started get sharp pain in my head when I was trying to use a firm voice with my older kids. That was around 10am then I watched a movie and just as the movie was ending at about 12pm I got a pains so bad in my head more pain  on my right. Movement made it intence so I took some pain meds and layed down and fell asleep. I just woke up its now 3pm while most of the pain has settled I have a this fuzzy feeling in my head almost like when you've listening to loud music but the fuzziness in not in my hears its in my head.

Has anyone felt this feeling this is not the first time I have had this feeling it's just the first time I asked if this is commen, do other people get this feeling as well.

Before my status migrainous set in, I'd often feel hungover after a migraine. I still get the hungover feeling after a bad spike, so I'm not really worried about your fuzzy feeling. If it worries you, however, it might be worth talking to a doc, just to ease your mind.

Do you think that it's the frustration and intense emotions that come from speaking firmly with your kids that caused the pain in the first place? I know that intense emotions for me can cause a spike in the pain. I've found that physically expressing the emotion in a *SAFE* way, can really help A) prevent/limit the spike and B) prevent the hangover. By physically expressing it, I mean things like feeling where in your body, other than your head, feels activated with energy. Then I do something to try and release the energy. For me, t's usually in my arms and chest. I've found that even just visualizing my arms moving in quick movements can help bring the activation down.

If you get the sharp pain after using your firm voice a lot, it might be worth looking into seeing an Somatic Experiencing therapist to help you figure out how to work with the activation that causes so that you don't end up with the head pain. My SE therapist is wonderful at helping me come up with coping strategies.

good luck and keep us posted,

I'm really not sure what triggers my migraine these day's, I'm had mild pains on off for days now threatening to cause an painful migraine. Which is commen but no matter what I do some thing always causes me to fianlly have the migraine at some point. It often kicks in when I'm relaxed last time it was after a relaxing bath. This time it was after a funny movie. It like as soon as I having any fun my body likes to punish me. One time it may be with legs pain another with a head pain, Some times with back pains.

I think intence emotion could be a trigger but it really does not matter if that is negative or positive emotions that what bothers me. I could be laughing so hard that it hurts and I have to stop because I'm got an headache/migraine.

The fuzziness was not really concerning me I was curious about it. I was not 100% sure it was part of the migraine or if I was some thing els.

I'm forever distracting my self from some sort of pain some where in my body. Hopeing that I'm just imaging the pain because I'm thinking about it so I distract my self but the headache or other pains still hit me no matter what. Mostly when I'm trying to have fun or relax.

I also asked about the fuzziness because I recently went threw a week of ringing in my ear that was simular except that I could feel it in my ear and not my head. I was not sure if these 2 feeling could be connected. I also recently went threw a week of intence photophobia with migraines on and off. Some one metioned cluster headaches. I really would just love to know how to have fun with out getting a headache/migraine. It is driving me bonkers.

There is a small part of me that wonders if a CT would be wise as I been having daily photo phobia for a while now. The intensity is different every day but progressively get worse the more light exposure I have. It feels like presure is building around my eye's sockets and the presure on my eyes feels like some one is trying to push my eyes out from inside my head. This may be due a sinus infection wont know unless it responds to the anti-biotics my Dr has put me on. I have also had weekness in my leg's for over year now that has gotten better some what since being put on Ivagradine for Inappropriate Sinus tachycardia but while I can walk faster and the intence fatuige feeling is 90% better, I still feel like I'm struggling to lift my my from my knee a lot It feels like I have to use my whole body to walk rather than just bending my knees and staying steedy on one leg for a short while. I still have no idea why I have IST in the first place. I've also been getting a lot vision disturbances when I'm walking it can be real bad but when I'm sitting not so much but it still happens the worst is when I wake up and my eyes look I'm under water. One day I almost went to the hospital because I could barly see for 1 hour but them it finally started to clear up. This has happening more and more in the last year as well. I remember having minor/short lived vission issues that started about 8 years ago but they went away and maybe happened one every 6 mth if that till recently.

each of the issues I've been having are very minor and would not bother me at all but together they seem like I should be paying attention. I while I'm 99% sure it all just co-incidance I really do wonder if I should be rulling out worse causes. I have an intence fear of asking for test. I'm already having a Echo in june to try to see if they find a reason for the IST. I'm on a waiting list for a gastroenterologist and dietition refured to by my cardiologist as I get nausious when I drink any fluid and been struggling with intergestion since my 4th child was born. I'm over weight since being on zyprexa for about 6mth. Now with my sinus issues I been refured to a ENT by my GP Dr. It just seems like a CT scan would be wise as the out come of ignoring that 1% concern could have a bigger impact on my life if I ignore it. Wouldn't it be better to be safe that sorry?

I would *definitely* go for the CT Scan. As you said, better safe than sorry. I get a CT scan or an MRI about every 2 years as my symptoms change, just to make sure that nothing physical has changed.

I'm sorry that you've got so many docs on your list, that's never fun. I know, I've got several myself. However, you really do want to eliminate that 1% concern.

Hi,

There is a Medhelp migraine tracker here that may help you list the possible triggers of your headache. Write the time, activity you are doing, how long it happened and even the other symptoms you experience. A headache journal like this will help a lot when you check with your doctor. Take care and regards.

I did use it for a while to see what it was like but my OCD made it hard to forget about it and put it out of my mind it's also hard to show my Dr the info. I've started keeping a writen record of my pains and med's I take as well. I started this cause I finding it hard to remember things like when I took a pain killer and when I can take another or my sleeping med etc as I'm not really meant to take my pain killers and sleeping meds and sedative at the same time so if I'm in pain and cant sleep then I really prefur to choose one or the other. There is a slight chance that if I took all the different med's at the same time I could cause too much of a sedative effect or some reaction.
