Migraines and fevers

I have been getting a lot of migraines lately, more often than usual, but for a while now, I have been getting fevers with mine. They get so bad that I get flu like symptoms, and I am forced to sleep it off because nothing helps. These are debilitating, and there are no meds I can take due to sensitivities. Anyone else experience these symptoms with their migraines?

Hi Kloudnine,

That sounds miserable. Just getting the headache part is bad enough, adding fever isn't fun. Is it just the migraine headache with fever? Or do you have more symptoms?

Well, either way, I think this is worth talking to a doctor, at least just calling and see if they think it's worth a visit. If your migraines have changed in nature enough that your meds don't work, frequency increases, they're debilitating enough to send you to bed, then add the fever and flu symptoms, that's a lot. It sounds like something different than a migraine.
