In this forum I have read several times that sleeping too little or too much is bad for migraine sufferers. I can understand why not sleeping enough is bad for migraines, the brain is wired and stressed and this can trigger an attack.
However, I don’t understand why sleeping too much is supposed to be bad for migraines. For me, sleeping calms my nervous system and I would think that this is beneficial. I usually sleep between 8 and 9 hours per night and sometimes I have a nap in the afternoon (maybe once or twice a week since I had my VM attack). I usually have a nap when I start to feel dizzy or nauseous. The nap last for about two hours and I feel fantastic after I wake up. I feel calm, energised and happy. If I have a nap twice a week, that would certainly be considered as sleeping too much. I feel it is beneficial for me, so why is sleeping too much considered as being bad for us. Am I missing something?
