Hi I am 44 and i am getting migraines just before my period start which last 2 - 3 days and awful nausea, i get very drained and find it hard to work some months also get a funny taste in my mouth. I did visit my doctor when they started about 18mth ago she said i needed to keep a diary of when they were happening to try and establish a cause, this was when I noticed it was just before period started. They then stopped for a while, but back in full swing now, some months worse than others. I suffer with Migraine on a normal basis (usually stress related) but i can treat these with ibuprofen and usually sleep and they ease, but the premenstrual headaches wont shift with any medication or sleep, just have to run their course. I have decided to keep some records from this month to look at other triggers at least then if I go back to the GP they will have all the information and cant send me away again. I dont think I can cope with losing 2-3 days of every month for the next so many years waiting for the menopause to happen.
