Woke Up From a Nap With a Migraine

United States
January 13, 2018 1:49am CST
Earlier I laid down for a bit after coming home from my outing with my mom and sister. I ended up falling asleep for a couple hours, and when I woke up I could feel a migraine coming on. It has now blossomed into a full-blown migraine. Looks like I need to go lay down again.

It happens also to me, if I sleep during the day, I get a migraine. I do not know the reason.

I'm sorry you also suffer from this. I don't know the reason for it either.

The other night, after dinner I had a massive migraine (one that I have never experienced). I went to sleep from 11pm to 8:45am and felt better. I hope you feel better now.

Aww, I'm sorry. I am glad you felt better when you woke up. Migraines are truly miserable, especially when they are worse than you've ever experienced. I do feel better now, thankfully.

@Srbageldog Yes, I am feeling better. I had a minor one today but it went away. Be sure to drink lots of fluids (water). Glad to hear you're feeling better now!

@infatuatedbby I'm glad your minor one went away. Sometimes eating dark chocolate helps me, but not always. Drinking caffeine used to help too, but I can't drink it anymore (even though I know dark chocolate has caffeine in it; soda and coffee causes me to have heart palpitations, which sucks!) Water helps too. Thanks. :) Hope the migraines stay away for both of us!

I do loathe getting a migraine. Had to work while having one and I was in agony.

@Srbageldog it was a rough day. I managed to get through it. It was on a weekend and I couldn't call out sick. Only had 2 clients and was done by 12:30.

@Courtlynn Thank you. Although I'm tired and debating whether to take a nap again...but don't want to wake up with another migraine. It's too early for bed.

The weather triggers my migraines too. If it looks like rain, I'm bound to get a headache. Ugh, that will do it too...

Oh, I hope you do not get these often. I never was diagnosed with migraines but I used to get what I called "master blaster" headaches a few times a year. I would try caffeine, and sinus medicine and all kinds of things. Eventually I would sleep. I found that if I increased the magnesium in my diet I did not get them. Chocolate has magnesium. So do leafy greens, and gatorade. I take magnesium with my calcium because they need each other to work. Someone else reminded you to drink lots of water and that is also a good measure. My herbal instructor says either to put peppermint oil at your temples, base of neck, or basil oil.

Unfortunately my life has been one migraine after another. I have been getting them since I was two and they are a frequent occurrence. I currently take a low-dose muscle relaxer, which helps some, but does not prevent them entirely. I have tried other meds (anti-seizure medications, which seem to be the standard for treating migraines) and had bad side effects. My neurologist did mention increasing my magnesium intake. I have heard of putting peppermint oil at your temples, but have never tried it. Maybe I will next time a migraine hits. Do you dilute the oil, or just apply it undiluted?

That blows. That has happened to me. A nap isn't always good results.

Lay down in a dark room with a cold washcloth on your forehead.
