I take Aleve for migraine, but mine are pretty mild. I suspect that the migraine may be because of distress about the mammo. Don't worry about the mammo procedure, it is uncomfortable, and if it is painful that only lasts a very short time. The technician will be very professional and will protect your modesty as much as possible. A doctor will read the pictures and tell the tech if you need to have any more done of specific areas in case the picture isn't clear enough. It is all over pretty quickly. Of course you are worried about the results. This is perfectly normal. Try to consciously relax to try to control the migraine.
