    migraine and mouth sores
    brascon01 posted:
    Hello all,

    I've been going through chronic migraines for about 1 1/2 years now and its getting better through many doctors and many meds. But i've noticed a few new symptoms, well atleast i think they are.
    Have any of you noticed, getting mouth sores and pain in your extremeties during or after a migraine?
    I have been getting both alot, its actually gotten worse these past few weeks. Is it part of the migraine or something else?

    smith_brad responded:
    The extremity pain could be part of the "migraine hangover," depending on how acute the pain is. As far as sores go, I've had migraines a long time and haven't run into that. I'd report that to your primary physician.
