Over the past two months, I have been getting migraine headaches every single weekend without fail. Either on the Saturday or the Sunday and it takes me out for a couple of hours. I usually have to go straight to bed and stay in the dark as I feel nauseous and the pain is unbearable. It lasts a couple of hours and I usually stay in bed until the next day 🙁
I know its caused from stress and I have been under a lot of pressure at work with no end or reprise in sight.. I am also just frustrated that it happens on the weekends when I have so little free time as it is.
I need to go see a doctor and have some tests perhaps. The first thing I did was go get my eyes tested but it appears that is not the problem (read four eyes).
So as this is a stress induced (hyper tension) symptom (along with some other stress related symptoms), I think I need to do something to sort it out.. Not sure yet what though.. What kind of tests does one go for with regards to this kind of thing? Are there migraine specialists? Do you go to your doctor first and then get a referral?
If anyone has any advice on this I would really appreciate it 🙂
