    Does it seem normal to have a migraine for almost 2 weeks? blondelbnj.
     

     

    Answer:

     

    Dear blondelbnj;

     

    No, it is not "normal" to have a Migraine for almost two weeks. The "typical" Migraine lasts four to 72 hours. A Migraine that lasts 72 hours or longer with less than a solid four-hour pain-free period, while awake, is termed status Migrainous. You should see your doctor or go to the emergency room if a Migraine lasts that long. See Status Migrainous - The Basics for more information.

     

    Good luck,
    John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
