Top 75 Migraine and Headache Questions, #11

Ask the Clinician Health Pro
  • Full Question:
    Is there any links between migraines and a freezing cold nose? It's not just cold on the outside (skin), it's cold radiating outward from inside my nose. It is like frostbite, almost. I have been to 3 diff doctors, and none of them have ever heard of it. Thanks, lynpx.


    Answer:

    Dear lynpx;


    I have heard of this kind of symptom in one patient who described a burning type sensation from inside the nose prior to a migraine. Don't know what it means; could it be a prodromal type symptom?


    Good luck,
    John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
