question for women

Post  Jewishmother on Mon Mar 21, 2011 10:37 pm

I am just curious if there is a parallel between how our migraines are during pregnancy and also after we go through menopause. Guess I am just grasping at straws…………..my migraines vanished when I was pregnant or nursing so can I hope that once I hit menopause (I am 51) that they will disappear? Is there a correlation? Leslie

I think these are great questions that could really use some studying so we could start to get some answers. Hormones are definitely a big factor for women, but the exact ways they affect our migraine attacks is largely unknown. Keeping a steady level of hormones is the best thing we can do to try to eliminate hormonal-triggered attacks, IMO.

I don't know. There seem to be so many variables. I never had a problem with headaches when I was younger or when I was pregnant. Just since I was 46. I am hoping they go away once I get to the other side of menopause.

Leslie, We are the same age and in the same boat. My migraines started at 13 and have been most severe during periods. When I was pregnant with my first daughter, they went away after the 3rd month and stayed gone until I finished breastfeeding. Sadly, with my 2nd daughter, I contracted Lyme disease and had headaches daily. Things went downhill after that since I didnt know I had Lyme. I too am praying for relief with Menopause.
Hugs,
Cindy

My migraines improved after age 53. They were the worst between the ages 48-52. I still have them, though. I did have migraines when I was younger(under 40), but they were rare, 2 or 3 times a year.

It is my last hope. I had no migraines while pregnant. I am 48 and definatley going through menopause and I've had my mensus for the last 3 weeks and had a migraine almost every day. Some days it has been killer headaches, and some days it's like I am like a normal person and I can even drink a beer or two if I want.

I keep telling myself that this is the end of migraines for me and if I can hold out a few more years, that the rollercoaster of hormones will stop and so will the migraines.

I hope, I hope, I hope.

By the way, I finally got a letter of appointment to see a headache neurologist, after a year of waiting for a reply. I only have 8 more months to wait. My appointment is November 21st. Incredible!
