Why Does My Urine Turn Cloudy After A Migraine?

Hello, I'm a 23 year old woman, and I've been a migraine sufferer for years. They are most often connected with my hormonal cycle, but can occur 4-5 times a month when I'm stressed, tired, or maybe food triggers. They are really painful, I throw up every time, several times, can't eat, light and smell sensitive. Only things that sorta work is a combo of advil, a dark room and ice, but when they occur I'm out for the day and usually have to call in sick and stay home. But in the past 6 months, at the end of a migraine I've noticed my urine is cloudy. It disappears after the migraine episode. Any one have any ideas why that might be?? I don't think there's any particular odor, sincerely doubt it's bacterial as it just appears and disappears with the attacks. Please help!

Maube,

I'm really not sure unless perhaps it's related to getting dehydrated during a Migraine.

Have you seen a doctor for your Migraines? I hate to see you suffer, and you said your Migraines take you out for the day. There are some very good medications available, such as the triptans (Imitrex, Maxalt, Zomig, etc.) that work to stop the Migraine and let you get back to "normal" much faster than things such as Advil, which can only mask the pain for a few hours.
