    do migraines seem to wear anyone out faster than when they don't have one?
    i only went out for about an hour and a half yesterday,
    it wasn't something i could help...
    and i have to admit it felt GOOD to actually get out of the house again.
    but last night i felt REALLY exhausted after i came back,
    i was having a friend over to watch movies with,
    and i couldn't even stay awake during the second movie,
    and i couldn't force myself to eat dinner.
    just LOOKING at the food made me feel sick.
    i've felt pretty much the same today,
    and ALL i've wanted to do is SLEEP.
    for at least the next ten years.

    its only 8, and i think i'm going to bed soon.
    anyone else have problems like this?

    What you describe is very common- it's the after effects of a migraine.

    Having migraines does suck the life right out of ya!!

    I feel exhausted beyond words,sometimes for 2 days after.

    I never knew if it was connected,...but after researching awhile ago I've found it to be true with alot of people.
    Rest alot,...drink water, feel better soon~

    I believe migraine pain is one of the worst agonies known to man. They are a very debilitating affliction for me. I usually end up crawling off to bed and sleeping them away.

    Most of the time I can only find relief with injectable Imitrex. I hate what they do to my neck muscles - they get all super tight and very painful. They do take all the joy out of doing anything.

    IHaven't been able to pin the occurrences on anything in particular, so that makes it difficult to prevent them. I hate the icepick in the eye type especially.

    Hope they go away and don't come back!!
