Answer

Hi Brenda,

First let me say that leg cramps and shooting pain in your legs is not typical in Migraine pain. It would be good to consult your doctor and discuss this.

Having said that, any Migraine pain lasting longer than 72 hours without a four-hour, pain-free break while awake could be a condition called Status Migrainous and needs medical attention. 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

Nancy
