Hi, i have suffered on and off with migraines for years and they are always on the right side of my head.I began taking prescribed beta blockers via my GP and they seemed to be keeping the migraines at bay although my weight gain has been increasingly difficult to manage.
Last October I had a small tumour (Non Cancerous) removed from my Parotid gland on the same side and whilst that is all good and causes no after effects my migraines have returned on the same side and I now worry about a connection?
Have as anyone else had any connections with migraine any other head issues or surgery's
How are you? Primary headaches such as migraines may be triggered by a variety of factors such as weather changes, stress, illness, food and a lot more. The trigger varies from one patient to another and may recur if there is a trigger exposure. With migraine, imaging studies usually yield normal results. And if the attacks recurred after the surgery or illness, it is possible that these were triggers as well. Other factors such as the type and size of tumor, your medical history and symptoms is also considered. It is best that you have this checked by your attending physician or be referred to a neurologist for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
