Post Migraine Symptoms

I'm a 25 year old student who suffers periodically from Migraines with auras. Most recently I suffered two within one week. Almost a week since second onset I now find myself felling tired throughout the day and a general since of fatigue when it comes time for my daily activities, school, work, and exercise. The drive and passion that I normally posses is just not there. Aside from the headaches now my mouth has erupted with cold soars. I acknowledge that there are perhaps several factors contributing to the state of my illness environment, stress/depression, among other things.

several years ago during the most severe migraine of my life I visited the ER and received a CT scan and was given pain medication. The results of the CT scan shown no abnormalities.

I have been neglecting to visit a physician for financial reasons, however I'm willing to consult with a professional if my problems persist. Aside from taking medication are there any reliable forms of treatments such as massage therapy, acupuncture, or herbal supplements that could improve my situation?

You could try the things you're asking about, but in addition I would see someone with the problems you're experiencing. Fatigue is a symptom of depression, as well as headaches. Do you have depression, and are you taking anything for it? Some depression meds can cause headaches.

If you don't have a dr, go to the county hospital urgent care, who legally have to treat you.

Cold sores are also caused by stress, but yours could also be caused by other things, so I would definitly get checked out.

The next time your mig tries to come back, drink some lukewarm coffee right away and don't wait because it only works at the beginiing.
