Headaches & Phantom Smell
Gratefulforhelp posted:
I struggle with migraines about every 8 weeks with light & sound sensitivity & even halos around bright objects. I cannot connect them to food, menstrual cycle, etc. There MIGHT be a weather connection, but I am still trying to pin that one down. One common occurrence, however, is that they are always accompanied by a phantom odor of cigarette smoke. Any suggestions?
