  • If you've never had a migraine, you might think it's just a really bad headache. But if you've ever had them, or you know someone who does, you know that they're much worse -- and much more complicated -- than that. Hank explains the biology behind this disorder of the central nervous system, and how it can be treated.

    The pain of a migraine is unbearable. All you gotta do is tough it out, sometimes medication won't even work. Honestly I'd rather go through childbirth, break my ribs and have kidney stones instead of experiencing the pain of a headache ever again. If I could trade it in for another type of pain, I would!!

    I have migraines on a rare occasion. My warning is a small spot in my peripheral vision in which I can't see. Within that spot of blindness I see what looks like a lightening strike and it flashes extremely bright, vivid colours as it grows over the rest of my vision. Very difficult to read or see where I'm going at that point. Then comes dizziness, fatigue, light and sound sensitivity and nausea.
    I take a couple of naproxen at first onset and lay in a dark room which prevents it progressing but the light sensitivity will set it off again if I'm not careful about slowly getting used to the light again. I usually spend an hour or so getting used to the light again by slowly opening a blind bit by bit every 10 minutes. Even when the visual aura is gone I can't just open the window and be fine as it will immediately come back. The worst one I had lasted an entire day and I still felt crap for the next 2 days.
    It doesn't help that it was also my first one, took place in the middle of a college class and I had no idea wtf was wrong with me, just that I was suddenly losing my vision. That's definitely scary losing your vision without warning and you don't know why.
    Migraines are worse than headaches by far. I'd take a headache any day to a migraine. At least I can still function with a headache.

    Smells like petrol, burning, and asphalt are big triggers for my migraines. It's horrible when you're going about your daily life and you smell something and you have to rush to try and prevent a migraine, but you know it's only a matter of time until one sets in and ruins your next few days.

    My dad gets migraines so when I get them, he knows what's up. Sounds don't bother me, but light and smells do really bad. So I hide in my room, turn on some metal softly, use my lavender vanilla pillow mist (the one scent that actually helps) and sleep for 12-36 hours. Longest migraine I've had lasted 4 days. That was hell. It was the only one that actually made me vomit. Usually I get a bit queasy, but never throw up for real.

    When I get a migraine, I always get a bunch of big black spots in my vision, peaking around noon-ish and giving me tunnel vision, then disappearing as the pain sets in and I am out for the day. Luckily, they only last for a day.

    When I got my first migraine it was so bad I didn’t know what it was so my workplace had to call 911. All my vitals were fine so they didn’t know what it was either (which I find troubling...)
    It started with an aura. I realized I couldn’t see one of my campers across the field so I sat out. Then I realized I couldn’t see the campers sitting directly next to me. Then I started to get an extremely bad headache. Then my whole left side of the body went numb and that’s when I freaked out 😔when EMS couldn’t figure it out, I went to the doctor and they immediately knew what it was-although after driving there I ended up puking... I didn’t even know it ran in my family. Just not fun 😂

    I once had a migraine with a lot of symptoms like a stroke. I experienced numbness in the right side of my body, slurred speech, and I could no longer write textmessages on my phone ( I couldn't recognise the letters). I got extremely scared because I was sure something was seriously wrong with my brain, and I went to the doctor. After 4-5 hours with nausea and extreme headache I would vomit and all of a sudden all symptoms were gone. So glad the doctor was able to correctly diagnose me immediately cause I was freaking out!

    When I get a migraine, I briefly have a sensation of euphoria, then I see auras for an unknown amount of time in which I run to sit down. The migraine then hits and I can do nothing but wait for the pain to make me pass out and hope I'm still functional when I come too. I've had them since puberty hit and they're more terrifying now that I'm in college and could strike at any time. Stay strong, fellow sufferers.

    People say you get eye problems when you have a headache, but I usually don't. I always thought I was getting migraines all the time, but what if I'm not??? Most of the symptoms he really don't apply to me. Ok here's how my "migraines" go. It starts with my head hurting, then it gets worse and worse, until I can't be in a room with loud noises or bright lights. I go to my room, in complete darkness, and fall asleep. Sometimes I wake up and go throw up, but that's it. I sleep all day, and wake up and it's fine. Well most of the time at least. Sometimes I wake up and still feel like crap lol. Sometimes. But yeah. Some people have told me that it's linked to my eye sight. I need glasses because I have astigmatism. So when I go for a long time without them I get migraines. But I also got them when I wear them. Very frequently, actually. It's very weird. Since I got my glasses my migraines have gone down though. I get them less often. Wow this is probably the longest comment I've made. Probably a pain to read. Ok I'm done now. XD

      Got prescribed 'Nortriptyline' which is marketed as one and it's the only thing I've ever used to suppress them almost entirely. Wasn't big on the idea at first but didn't have much a choice and it actually worked. Only bad thing is you need to keep taking them because if you stop for a week or so, the migraines will be back like normal and it takes days before it takes effect again.

    About the "dark, quiet room"....This isn't always the case. I know I'm not the only person with migraines who seeks out distractions from what is otherwise a torturous nightmare. If I can, I will watch Netflix, browse the internet, listen to podcasts, or try to play simple games. If I can do these things with a loved one, all the better. (Because migraines, and the side effects of the powerful meds for them, can be scary.) Anything to keep from being left alone in a dark room with the pain. However, it can depend very much on the type of pain I'm having. I can even semi-function and complete simple chores if I'm having sharp, "bright" pain. The deep, grinding pain is the nightmare pain that really stops me, but I'll usually at least have a radio on low to focus on. Again, anything to not focus on the pain for even a moment here and there, is welcome. It's all still misery, and not fun like doing these things when not in pain, mind you.

    I get migraines often. Result of past concussions. I sleep, take super motrin, hide out in a dark silent room for hours, even but ice packs and cold wet or damp cloths on my forehead and behind my neck. Still takes hours for it to go away, sometimes days. Joy.

  • Oliver Reid

    Thankyou for this. I've had migraines my whole life, usually triggered by stress. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Sometimes though, I've had the nausea & perceptual distortion (aura) phase, but without the blinding pain phase that usually succeeds it. In me, sounds get clipped, with things seeming to be underwater. My colour vision get seriously strange with everything looking like it's through a blue filter - skin tones get bizarre as people look purple. Reading or watching tv becomes difficult as I can't concentrate on the flow of information.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Migraines don't respond to the usual headache drugs, such as Opiods & Benzos. My experience has been significantly improved by two medications: Naramig (Serotonin Agonist) & Ketorolac (Anti-inflammatory).
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    One interesting fact: I get my migraines from my mum. She gets the pain headache behind her right eye & I always get mine behind my left eye. What this means, I've got no idea...

    Triptan drugs (like Zomig and Imitrex) are effective for many.
    Mayo Clinic pioneered the the use of Botox injections in the scalp as a migraine preventative. These injection are administered every 90 days (around $4K per treatment). They are (in our experience) effective in reducing the frequency of migraine and the severity of breakthrough attacks.

    Before my migraine I get the Aura, and get off balance. During it, the Aura gets worse, the migraine sets in, I'll feel nauseous, and I become EXTREMELY sensitive to light and sound. I also tend to feel like I'm constantly going to pass out.
    After the migraine, I'm weak, and I get this lasting, pounding headache that gets worse when I move around.

    it's so freaking horrible. i usually get mine a week before my period begins, but not before every period, just some. i get mine in a three-stage process beginning with an aura, then headache, then nausea and vomiting. i always happen to get them at the worst possible moments as well... one time i got one during a weekend sleepaway camp and i was forced to go back to my room, turn off all the lights, and sit on the ground barfing into a tiny trashcan. i missed a ton of activities and felt really awful for making the camp staff tend to me...

    I get both migraines and cluster headaches; used to only experience pain before either (although usually I’ve had STRONG cravings for acidic food the day or two before a cluster) but lately I developed a whole new symptom to my migraines...extreme nausea. So bad that I sometimes can’t get my migraine medication (OR anti nausea medication) into me. Migraines are horrific and I’ve been incapacitated before at work because of them. And it’s hard when you’re pale as a ghost, puking your brains out, and can barely see and people still think you’re exaggerating. It’s not an exaggeration and I’ve been hospitalized three times before in my life for these “headaches”. I’ve had them since I was 15 and I have wished every day since my first that my peers would just understand. Not to mention even if my medication takes the migraine away I get severe post-migraine exhaustion and “wooziness” so even if I’m not longer in pain and can function as a basic human being please understand no I don’t want to go to the movies or hang out or whatever-I just want to lay in a dark quiet room. Maybe with my cats if they behave. Oh and yeah it’s true that basically if you menstruate you’re boned-any day could be a hormonal “trigger”. My one for sure trigger is changes in air pressure but the rest is a mystery. Oh yeah! And I once blacked out during a migraine while driving (kept puking up my medication for it while at work so was sent home, and since nothing like this had happened to me with a migraine before I didn’t think it would be an issue).

    This will sound weird but celery juice helps relieve some symptoms of a migraine works on mine.

    Anybody else have dairy triggered migraines..? Haven’t eaten dairy in months and I’m doing great. When I do, I’m in bed for days with a migraine. Sounds extreme but it’s real.

    Before I started taking an SSRI, my birth control actually gave me the WORSE migraines. I remember one time at work it started as me feeling tired, and then I felt my tooth hurting, and then I couldn’t type or move my fingers it was terrifying. I didn’t know it was serotonin related though. I thought it was because of blood pressure.

    I had a migraine once, it lasted for about 3-4 days. I had a few after effects but not aura.

    I have had persistent migrainous aura for a year and a half now, constantly, 24/7. It is a migraine aura all the time, and for me constant migraine level light sensitivity. It sucks just as much as you think and I am functionally vision impaired because of it. Using a screen reader right niw in fact

    I get migraines pretty bad, they turn up pretty suddenly, i always lose vision, especially in my left eye (idk how to explain this just how it feels) and like im travel sick- any motion makes my brain and eyes feel awful, i get tingles all on my left side and left side only, even on my tongue in a really straight divide between tingles on the left and fine on the right, i also get a hell of a lot of pain and light and sound sensitivity, and a sore neck and back, i think it's quite food triggered e.g. msg or Chinese takeaway often make me feel pretty bad like this 😕

    Had a miserable migraine several months ago while shopping. Started out as a headache in one side of my head and the pain spread to all my head and even my neck. Soon I lost the ability the move my hand, although I could still feel it when I would tap it. I felt sick to my stomach and my vision was slightly blurred. I couldn't talk right and every sound I heard was exaggerated and made the pain worse. I felt dizzy and exhausted and went to the hospital and called my doctor. Nothing but a migraine. As soon as I got home I felt so horribly and felt like I was about to get sick. I layed down, feeling very weak and feverish (it was 5pm) and slept through the night and ended up staying home the following day.

    I suffer from true migraines. Have since I was a kid. THANK YOU for explaining it for everyone. People calling their headaches migraines is aggravating. You have no idea what they're really like unless you have them.

    Great video, covers most of the topics I wanted to know. I would have liked to know why certain people have migraines more often, and if it is possibly related at all to depression. I personally get mid-severity migraines very often, usually 2-4 times in a week. Taking certain supplements seems to help prevent and treat them... for a month I had been taking some Vitamin C supplements that also had some other antioxidants and a bunch of other stuff, and for a while, even after I had ran out, I had reduced migraines, and the ones that I had were less severe. It was only for about a week, though. One trigger that I have for migraines that wasn't mentioned seems to be skin irritations and acne. Sometimes, when feel a rash or a pimple, I get a migraine. Wierd.
