Migraine / nausea type symptoms

For around the last 4 years been having migraine / nausea symptoms on and off , never been able to identify what exactly triggers it . It will usually happen in afternoons (3-6 ish) and will always start of as a mild headache at which point I try to take strong painkillers which never seem to do anything ,then around 15 -20mins later a migraine comes then i start feeling sick shortly after and will will be sick a lot 2 or 4 times then after that I will sometimes feel cold with nausea type feeling with for 1-3 hrs in bed . never been able to work out why this happens and been through it all really.any thoughts much appreciated

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. All your symptoms are connected to migraine and is the prodromal phase likely. Need to know your triggers and avoid them, know your symptoms and treat them immedietly. Keep a diary and get a neurological evaluation.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
