Over the last year I have become increasingly fatigued. Prior to this I was pretty fit doing around 3 hours of heavy CV exercise a day either cycling, gym work or running.
Around a year ago I had a collection of migraines after exercising that I put down to mild dehydration or lack of calorific intake. These were the type of migraine where I would lose my central vision for a couple of hours as there would be a swirling mass of colours in that area of my vision. it had been around 20 years since I last had one but it wasnt too bad.
Then one day at work I had a really bad one which wiped me out for a week. The fatigue was very intense and my peripheral vision was very sparkley.
I tried to continue exercising at a reduced rate but would end up randomly being disprortionally fatigued every few weeks. I would have to spent a weekend in bed asleep every month or so which wasn't me at all.
My GP was stumped and I had more tests than I knew existed.
Then 3 weeks ago I felt very strange at work and felt like I was going to pass out followed by extreme fatigue. My usually normal BP screamed up to 180/120, heart rate went from 40bpm to 70bpm at rest and my left pupil became enlarged compared to my right and there was a pain in my eyes. This happened again yesterday.
My GP is thinking this might be a form of migraine and I have been reffered to a neurologist. We are also thinking that the fatigue I was experiencing after exercise could be a form of silent migraine.
Has anyone else suffered with the pupil changes and noticed a large rise in BP / RHR during an attack?
Anyone else with transient fatigue associated with silent migraine?
