dr. with every migrant there are
different stages right sure is that correct correct all right we have a
graphic here of typical stages typical stages of migraine so let’s take them
one by one doctor and tell me what this person unfortunately is feeling okay so
typically the prodromal stage can start up to 24 hours before you get a migraine
but it’s not always the case because some migraines are very sudden onset okay
thereafter the aura is what you may or may not experience along with the start
of some of the phases of your migraines in the prodromal phase so the aura you
might see flashing lights you could see some bright lights you could see some
yes exact lines on appearance of your visual some patients can get difficulty
with hearing sensitivity to you know sounds you can get other other different
types of auras but usually typically that the visual auras tend to be the
most affected thereafter leads to the headache so some of the subsequent
symptoms start within 24 hours but they can start four to six hours even
prior to getting an aura the headache is a migraine that usually starts very
gradually and then of course becomes that debilitating severe migraine and
then once you have that migraine if it’s treated or even sometimes if it’s not
treated you tend to have that postdrome phase where the headache is not as
intense not as severe you can still possibly have the headache but you can
feel exhausted weak tired very confused not yourself not acting right fatigue is
a very common symptom and in that a prodromal phase and we know there are
different types of migraines do they all go through these stages no no no no
migraine is the same so it really depends on the type of migraine that you
have and some of this equalities that follow so not everything like I tell
patients two plus two is not always four in medicine so you’re not always gonna
find this theme and they cannot stand hearing that I know I’m sorry but it’s
the truth it’s not medicine is not always as clear-cut and not every
patient is the same so you have to treat symptoms a little different and they
vary between patients right and even every patient is different absolutely
so her migraine may not be your migraine exactly
