Could the fluttering sensation on my head be the beginning of a migraine?

I am a 39 year old female, about 5 8, and I have had a history of migraines. Recently they seem to have subsided somewhat. But the last couple of days I ve had a a fluttering sensation on the top, left side of my head. Could this be the beginning of a migraine or possible something else ?

I've gone through your query. I can understand your anxiety.

Your symptoms might be due to Tension Headache / Classic Migraine without aura.

Migraine headache usually presents with  Nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, dizziness, fluttering etc. I advice you to,
1. To take Analgesics like Naproxen /paracetamol & Triptans
2. Neck massage
3. Relaxation & Stretching exercises.
5.  Caffeine drinks
6. Avoid exposure to light, noise etc

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Get well soon.
