... I am having terrible migraine headaches that wont go away. I have a history of migraines. Are migraines normal after a hysterectomy while beginning surgical menopause? Y'all have been very helpful to me. Thank you
I would think it would be a definite possibility. Hormone variances cause a wide range of symptoms esp. when your body goes through the shock of a hyst. I had migraines like clockwork one week before my periods... so a huge hormone shift like what you are going through could definitely be a trigger.
In my opinion if you have had migrains in the past it is probably just another migraine and not related to menopause or your hysterectomy. I also have a history of migrains and I just had my hysterectomy back in December of 2011 and I havn't had any issues with more migrains and I don't believe I have ever heard of migrains as a sign of starting menopause, although I can't say for sure. However if you are concerned about what changes your body may go through after having the hysterectomy and early menopause you might want to make an appointment with your ob/gyn, or a specialist that can discuss what you may or may not experience. I know for me it was acne. 41 years old, never had acne or a skin problem my entire life. The dermatologist did advise me that this is without a doubt a sign of hormones and I should see someone.
I havn't yet, but I plan to schedule an appointment with someone who can recommend what my options are before this gets out of control. You may want to do the same. Hope your feeling better soon. Good luck to you!
I had my hysterectomy last Thursday and by the night time, I had my first migraine. By 2am I had my 2nd migraine and then another at 6am. Each day is like this for me. I have had migraines since I was 5. I have celiac and was not diagnosed until I was pregnant at 36. They have found that without diagnosed females with celiac will have menstrual problems through their lives. I have had 7 auto immune diseases and I have endometriosis & adhesion's throughout my abdomen. The doctor was amazing at how one ovary was wrapped in the adhesion's, like a sausage. That was the most painful ovary that had many cyst rupture during my lifetime. I know the hysterectomy has caused this on slot of migraines. It's frustrating b/c my OB/GYN said call your neurologist. I am so frustrated, everyone passes you on & some doctors take weeks to get a appt. and so I have to go on and on with these symptoms.
