I HATE TO BE A WOMAN! Once a month I felt this way.To have a monthly period was very embarassing to me since I suffered this headache.Some of my friends called me "unfinished" that's why I have this migraine.I'm in the middle of the men and the woman they said.I am suffering this migraine since I was teenager.I do research since then but everything was a not found what I felt.It's complicates the way how it attacts on me. Expert studies by saying "two types of migraine" like MRM & PMM but for me I just felt both or only one kind not two types.I dont know and I dont want to go back and fort to some clinics for another check up.
****MRM(menstrual related migrane) is a headache of moderate-to-severe pain intensity that happens around the time of a woman’s period and at other times of the month as well.
****PMM(pure menstrual migraine) is similar in every respect but only occurs around the time of a woman’s period.
The exact causes of menstrual migraine are uncertain but evidence suggests there may be a link between menstruation and migraine due to the drop in estrogen levels that normally occurs right before the period starts.
****Menstrual migraine has been reported to be more likely to occur during a five-days, from two days before to two days after menstruation.
When compared with migraines that occur at other times of the month, menstrual migraines have been reported that it last longer—up to 72 hours, more severe, occur more often with nausea and vomiting- I'm not suffering this , be more difficult to treat—occur not frequently.
****every month that I have and felt this way my employer always asked me , so I need to explain her to avoid another complications on my work that not just severe but a total distruction of my life. lol.
