I get a precursor to a migraine if it is going to be a severe one. The weather has made a dramatic change today, and I have started with what might be an aura, visual, only this one behaves by frequent trips to the bathroom. It is like I have taken a Lasix, there is copious amount of urine and I go every 15-30 times 2-4 hours, then stops.
Any where between 6-12 hours the headache arrives.
Have any of you heard of this, when I bring it up, I'm told that it is not an aura they recognize.
I would like to get a better understanding of this. Frequent and copious urination does lower my Potassium, and I take supplements for that to keep my heart from throwing PVC's.

I don't want to delve too much into my personal life, but since some of you have asked I thought I would mention that I did get married last weekend. It was a fabulous event - everything I ever dreamed of! Our thanks to all of you who have offered your congratulations and best wishes. And now, back to talking about everyone's favorite topic...

Overactive bladder is a condition in which the bladder spasms uncontrollably, causing the sudden, intense, and frequent urges to urinat...
Upon perusal of the www.healthcentral.diabeteens.com web site, there appears to be pervasive discussions of Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) and its various permutations. I wanted to define and discuss the multiple situations leading up to DKA and talk about the mythical condition of "brittle" diabetes.
What is diabetic ketoacidosis? DKA results when there is insufficient insulin to enable carbohydrates to enter into the body's cells. As a result, the body must metabolize fat and muscle to manufacture energy. This process is extraordinarily inefficient and leads to the development of ketones, a by product of fat breakdown. The blood ketones accumulate and can lead to increased acid in the blood resulting in serious consequences such as vomiting, loss of consciousness, potential coma or death. Because glucose cannot get into the cells, the concentration increases in the blood and thereby causes increased drinking, increased thirst and increased urination resulting in dehydration. Dehy...
