Migrains and enhanced triggers of the senses
knyghtwolf53 posted:
I am not sure if this can be classified as a Migraine or not. What happens is that I go into an enhancement of senses. My sense of smell is very acute, I smell things that are almost 100 to 200 feet away in other rooms, sometimes in other peoples' houses, I hear things like my cats walking on carpeting, my bed, in the kitchen when I am at the opposite end of my home, even in the basement. My eyes get very sensitive to light, I can not open them in any kind of light other than extremely dim light or total darkness. I recently started taking a new drug called Techfedara for MS. I take a lot of other medications as well, almost 12 kinds in the morning alone. It eventually goes away, only lasting for 10 minutes or less. I also have hypoxia and polycythemia as well, along with CHF, and chronic pain in high numbers almost all the time, but that is usually managed by meditation mostly because I hate narcotics. What is going on? Any ideas or clues?
