Since my child was born little over 3 years ago, I've had horribly migraines (commonly). At first I had about 12-15 in a month. Now I get them 7 days out of a month. I'm not sure as to why they were so bad at first but now I can pinpoint them to being before and during my cycle time. I've been put on lo-lo estragin birth control (tried so many others) in hopes it would help as well as other problems (cycle). I still am having horrible migraines the last week of my pills. My migraines are ALWAYS on the left side, behind the eye or top of the head. Is it a menstrual migraine? Also sometimes I get this weird feeling headache to when I stand up my head pounds, I can't talk, I can't hear, all I can do is stand still and let it go away....it lasts only a few seconds---I've taken my blood pressure during that and it's normal. What can this be? It just started this year. It scares me with the way it feels.
