    It's a migraine, usually from over training
    Sit, relax, breathe deep and slow

      My migraines are routinely the worst pain i've ever experienced for 5 hours straight. No deep breathing can fix that.

    The first time that happened to me was scary as frick. It just started off as a tiny blurry dot that was a few words ahead of where I was reading, then turned into a crazy lightning bolt of flashing lights that slowly grew bigger over the course of an hour. Weirdly it doesn't actually go away, it just gets big enough that I can see through it and it slowly moves out of my field of vision.

    Anyone on IST actually figure out their triggers for this and how to prevent them? I've tracked my diet, weather/pressure changes, sleep, hydration, you name it and no correlation. I just regularly get fricked ~2 times a month with ocular migraines. I've tried magnesium, B-12, all the supplements in the world and no changes. It started when I turned 25 and has been around for the last 7 years with no change.

      I’ve had them since I was 12 and I don’t even keep track of what triggers them anymore, almost immediately upon doing an activity or entering an area I’ll feel a tightness around my temples and at the base of my neck and leave before it becomes a problem. I’ll list some weird ones that I’ve noticed to give you some ideas:
      -Reading in bright rooms, being near a brightly lit white wall
      -Focusing on something featureless, like the sky, wall, empty page, clean table
      -Certain colognes and perfumes
      -Humid areas
      -Red meat
      -vasodilating medication
      -hats/tighter hairstyles
      -anything that causes neck pain
      -repetitive/high pitched noises
      -chewing something for a long time
      -Not having <150mg caffeine in the morning
      In terms of remedies I chug a bottle of water and an energy drink and lay down on the floor with all of the lights off and the AC on. The test to see if I’m ready to turn the lights back on is if I can shake my head forward and back without it hurting.

      I have only had them a handful of times in my life over the last ten or twelve years, and I'm almost forty. So no, never been able to figure out a trigger either. Luckily for me my sister has them and so I was pretty sure I knew what it was when it happened to me the first time. Every time I've had an aura I've been able to take some ibuprofen and that seems to prevent the headache from me. I've also had some really bad headaches in my life that were probably migraines in retrospect, but I didn't really understand that at the time. Those didn't have auras with them though. I've never really had the full migraine experience and I get them very infrequently, it's kind of strange.

      I get them almost exclusively from playing pickup basketball, particularly when it’s hot outside. I think lack of hydration/nourishment is a factor but I’ve gotten them even on days I knew I was hydrated and well fed. What’s odd is I ran xc and played hockey in high school and never got it once after either of those activities, no matter how hard I was training. And my diet was fricking terrible in high school. Sometimes I’ll notice neck pain before the aura starts as well.

      It’s so bizarre how doctors have basically no explanation for these. Each time it happens the aura lasts about 30 minutes, followed by nausea, followed by a brutal headache that last hours. One guy I know said he never got another migraine again after having his deviated septum fixed.

        >Each time it happens the aura lasts about 30 minutes, followed by nausea, followed by a brutal headache that last hours.
        Exact same for me. It fricking sucks because as soon as I get the visual aura I know it's inevitable and there's nothing I can do to stop it from coming on. Just close my eyes and ride it out if I'm lucky and at home, or power through it if I'm out at work or something. I've even started to get them overnight occasionally, where I will "dream" about having the aura and then wake up with a splitting headache.

        I just hope as I get older they somehow magically go away eventually.

          Yea the best remedy I’ve found is taking excedrin as soon as possible and then just closing your eyes. If I attack it early enough and have the luxury of laying down or trying to nap it off I can usually mitigate most of the nasua and a good amount of the headache.

      I get different types and realized it was sleep deprivation combined with a certain type of immune stress. Making sure I don’t had bad sleep for more than a few days at a time helped me avoid my migraines.

      My migraines went away when I started taking magnesium.

      It sucks that magnesium doesn't work for you. Maybe you're not taking enough over a long enough period of time, or you're taking the wrong form.

      I had some migraines come back when I started taking doses of vitamin D, even small doses. (If I take vitamin D every day, I don't get migraines, but if I _start_ taking it, I get them.) Perhaps you could look into that. Even milk might have small doses of vitamin D added, so it could be a trigger.

        For me its this. I had blood work done to figure out I had a magnesium problem. I can usually tell when I'm about to start having problems because my sleep goes to shit and I get restless leg syndrome (both of which are low magnesium issues) Then its headaches and full blown completely blind occular migraines

      NTA but im out of commission for 12 hours while satan fricks my eye sockets
      though i only get them if i smell some specific chemical (idk which one). i avoid the dollarama smelly section like the plague.

      >causation
      seems to be exposure to some chemical compound (at least personally). take note of the smells you sensed before the aura kicked in.
      >be me
      >walking through dollar store with family
      >spend a minute in the section with candles, smelly gels, etc
      >a minute later vision starts looking intoxicated
      >15 minutes later incapacitated
      >30 minutes later full blown migraine
      I've noticed this also happens with cheap wax melters, cheap candles, and just about anything cheap thats scent-based.
      my current theory is that my body is extra sensitive to some toxic compound found in shitty scent items.
      as for the migraine itself
      >migraine begins
      >15-60 minute aura
      >eyes get extremely sensitive to any light. any light exposure feels like someone pressing their thumbs into my eye sockets
      >migraine chills; body temperature drop often accompanied by teeth chattering, goosebumps, and shivering
      >nausea
      so far this is the recovery protocol that I devised, seems to work more or less
      >blacked out bathroom with either a small nightlight or phone flashlight pointed at the ceiling
      >sit at the toilet for 30-120 minutes until done vomiting
      I've found that if i wait to puke naturally the migraine will take up to 12 hours to clear. force yourself to puke a bunch and it brings the timeframe down to 8 hours.
      >drink water
      >after vomiting has concluded, continue to drink water, take 1000mgs of acetaminophen and 800mgs of ibuprofen
      >maybe take a nap on the cold floor in the dark bathroom
      >take warm shower in the darkness
      >maybe take a nap in the bathtub while the warm shower runs
      >exit shower
      >maybe put towel on the floor and take another nap on the floor
      at this point the migraine should be on the comedown and tolerable. this protocol takes 2-4 hours. I intend on experimenting with a THC disposable vape pen to see if that could alleviate the ailment somewhat, however I'm not going to purposefully expose myself to an environmental trigger in the name of science.

        to add to this
        >minor exposure to triggering scent can trigger a minor migraine
        >minor aura, minor disorientation, minor light sensitivity
        this was a breakthrough that allowed me to conclude it being an environmental trigger instead of something baked in.
        if you suspect your migraine are triggered by external factors and you feel and aura beginning, vacate the room immediately. go somewhere with either fresh air, clean air, or both.
        an air purifier with a HEPA filter (sometimes with an activated carbon filter) has a good chance of keeping a room free of any possible triggering compounds.

      My main trigger was artificial sweeteners, primarily sucralose and aspartame. Cutting those reduced the frequency of migraines form once every month or so to once every two years or so and the pain went from excruciating to the level of a regular headache.

            Same, it's just the way we get a migraine. Some people go blind, some people have intense headaches, we just get this c**t in our vision for a few hours. I agree with everyone else that bad sleep, lack of recovery and stress brings this on for me

      people who had not have aura would assume its just like this you see a shape or a snake but really its worse than the pictures portray, you see everything in tripple plus blur, plus there is a shape, plus you feel like you are at 50% consciousness level plus sounds feel kinda trippy.

      the nice thing for me is the after effects, i think you get some kind of serotonin boost some times after migraine for a short period

    vros I can not stress goody's extra strength migraine powder enough.

    Migraines used to cripple me and induced extreme anxiety due to how painful they were but this shit unironically changed my life.
    I had a migraine trigger a few days ago with and when I noticed the small blurry dot in my vision i took one of these bad boys plus 2 migraine pills
    250mg acetaminophen
    250mg aspirin
    65mg caffeine
    and literally went about my day like it was nothing.

    used to get them a lot when I was younger and then realized loud music through ear buds were causing them(but not head phones or other loud music) although I still get them about monthly and I have no idea why.

    I take the power + 2 pills and then quickly eat something small otherwise my stomach has a weird feeling from the powder and pills. Normally you get relief from the migraine when it's time to puke and then it deescalates but with this stuff I get all the visuals of the blurryness and then the lightning bolt and then NOTHING.
    As if it never even arrived.

      frick, im getting sick even think about it. I had one few days ago while i was at work. When you first start to realize whats happening its so over. I usually end my migraine attacks by violently throwing up after a 2-3h of pain. Last time it was located near my left eyebrow, and it felt like the pain was coming from my veins.

      You have no idea how lucky you are

    My pattern used to be:
    Intense workout
    Increased sinus pressure (felt like the bridge of my nose was going to burst)
    Then I'd go to work and the brightness of the screens would trigger the aura, followed by a migraine

    My theory was that because of my deviated septum, my sinuses weren't draining properly.
    I would treat this at home by inhaling olbus oil in boiling water, and then finishing my shower with 10-20 seconds of cold to relieve the pressure.

    I had my theory confirmed by a doctor, who prescribed me 'avamy's nasal suspension'

    After a few months, I don't even feel my sinus pressure build anymore, and have stopped the cold showers and olbus oil almost completely. I can workout harder too. No migraine since late January, after sometimes having three in a week.

      im pretty fortunate with the headaches for the most part an ibuprofen solves most of them but holy frick the auras, they are 1h-1,45h long and when peaking like 30 min in i cant almost see at all and i literally cant think sentences let alone talk and comprehend spoken words, at the tail end one of my arms tingle for a some minutes and that usually signals its like 15 minutes left of the aura.

      One time after doing a PR in squat i got A LITERAL FRICKING 30 HOUR AURA with minimal headache, literraly the entire next day i layed in bed because i didnt have full conciousness

      my migraine attacks are 90% after training so i force myself to be very lethargic and at most listen to something not too energetic in my ears or maybe look at a non-moving website at low screenbrightness, i do this for 100 minutes or more

        clarification, i take some 100 minutes being lethargic to not trigger them, usually works, i get an attack like once every 60 days, i would prob get more if i acted as normal after training. So i usually shower in a pretty dark bathroom for example, with very slow movements
