WOMEN ONLY! Do you get harder headaches than typical before your menstrual cycle starts at times?

I'm asking this question for a friend. This past week they've had harder headaches this week (mainly around the eyes and across the forehead), which have been harder than typical ones. I thought I'd ask since I was doing some research on headaches anyway. Thanks for the answers in advance and suggestions would be great too. :)

Not really. Sometimes I feel lightheaded if I skip breakfast or another meal during that time. Make sure she eats 3 meals a day so she gets the necessary nutrients to keep her blood sugar on the right level. You may also want to tell her to talk to a doctor about it. :)

Thanks! She said that the headache came at night about an hour before bed and was still there in the morning. She put some essestial oil stuff on which usually helps but didn't this time.

yes, i found this, but mostly just before a period.
for me, its a little pressure behind the eyes and forehead and it seems to go away the moment my period starts. add that to the pms list.
