    Migraine and mood

    I know having a migraine isn't going to really cheer anybody up, but do any other sufferers of migraine and depression find that when affected by migraine they feel terrible mood wise, much lower and think of doing bad things? I think I do, but it's getting hard to separate things out :( Could...

    Problems with speech/reading/listening to speech.

    Bear with me on this... On Monday (3 days ago at the time of writing this), I had a migraine, which is a usual thing for me. I've been getting them for years.

So has given me sumatriptan to try. Am a bit scared now after...

    "Useful" Migraine ?

    I've wondered about a couple possible theories, such as: I have BPD which, as you may know, comes with a co-morbidity combo meal and large side of emotional dysregulation... I have had migraines since age 7 when I was being sexually victimized. My home was neither a validating nor nurturing...

    Not feeling well

    I've not experienced a 'thing' like these last few days before. Maybe in little bits. I think it's carrying on, but not sure yet. I slept better. My thinking was quieter. At first I thought I was going to get a migraine, I get dizzy a few hours before. But no migraine. I'm dizzy this morning...

    Feeling sorry for myself

    My mood's been yo yoing and bouncing a bit erratically since starting meds. 100mg felt toxic, so I dropped back to 50mg, but I think the angry agitation I was feeling at 100 was just me, as it turned to hypo feeling, which was the natural progression before. It's just like the feelings are...

    ....Borderline Personality and Migraine...

    ...there is evidence that migraine and BPD are linked with some individuals. Personally, as a very long-term Migraineur (55 years) and an associated BPD evident for the same period of time...though not diagnosed formally until more recent years the inter-relationship comes as no surprise. Are...
