Unusual side effect

In late November of 2011 my partner walked out of our relationship. It was a very big shock and a complete emotional turmoil for me. Having been a couple of months I realise that even with the stress and emotional issues I haven't had a migraine.

Now I would have expected to have had severe attacks but nothing and I'm wondering if anyone can suggest why this may be so.

Not that I am wishing anyone to go through the upset I have recently but I am making some associated cause and effects.

I am thinking that there is a chemical change in the brain when emotional issues occur and may be having such an effect.

    I have to say laura2222 hit the nail on the head…(poor nail). While stressed, no migraine. Take that stress away and a migraine kicked in.For several years just about every weekend was ruined by a migraine. My job was fast paced, lots of travel delayed flights early wake ups and long days. When things were falling apart around me I'd grab all the pieces pull them back together, I was actually at my best in those moments. Take that stress away and BAM!

    They say that a migraine can be known to hold off until the stress has gone down. I have also heard that a relationship that is stressful can create one. People have said to me ,at least 2,that when they left there relationship , the migraines stopped.food for thought!!!!

    If there was any stress in the relationship, not having the stress any longer could be one reason for not getting the migraines anylong. Smells, the scent that your partner used or chemicals from their system and the way it mixed with something they used, shampoo's, conditioners, body washes or soaps. Lotions shaving cream's there are a lot of things that could have been in the home and they are removed. Certain smells and scents trigger migrains for me. Candles and air freshners and colognes and perfumes.
