Within a few hours before my pain starts my nose gets so cold I don't want to breathe with my nose. I seem to want to breathe through my mouth instead.
We have noticed that if I can breathe warm air or warm moist mist the pain is not as bad. However, as soon as my nose starts getting cold again the pain is back. I usually drink alot of hot coffee and breathe the steam from the coffee as much as I can to ease the pain for a short while. I also, cup my hand over my nose or even use a hair dryer to warm the air going up my nose to help. These are all temp. helps but, they do work.
I use to think my pain was sinus but, when the dr. asked if anyone in my family had migraines I remembered that my mother use to get very bad headaches all the time. She told me once that a dr. told her she had migraines. I just never thought about it being something passed down from my mom till my dr. asked me about it.
My question is does anyone else have this cold nose problem right before they get this pain?
