I’ve been having migraines now for four weeks - I’m 27 years old. Initially was having them every day, but last two weeks has been every two days. I have a four month old baby so finding it hard.
I get the aura and then the pain, although last few attacks, the pain has been considerably less. Maybe due to taking sumatriptan and beta blockers (as GP put me on these to help control the migraines). A few weeks ago I was rushed into hospital and was in resus for five hours. I had a migraine which was so painful, my body decided to rest what it didn’t need. So I forgot who my husband and son were, was unconscious a lot of the time and couldn’t speak. The doctors rushed me into a CT scan (to check for bleed on brain) and gave me a lumbar puncture (to check for meningitis). All came back clear. They were even getting ready to send me to the neurosurgeons at a larger hospital close by. Once tests came back clear, they discharged me. I went to GP following the hospital trip, where he gave me the beta blockers and sumatriptan to help the migraines.
I decided to go to the opticians to check whether I needed stronger lenses (I wear glasses and contact lenses daily). It only increased a little. The optician shone the light in my eyes and found swelling at the back of my left eye. She wrote a letter to my GP asking whether I needed a referral to an opthomologist. GP said she should have referred me straight there. He sent the letter on to the opthomologists.
So I’m now waiting for this appointment with the opthomologist. But I’m so worried. Has anyone had anything similar? Or know what could be wrong?
I’ve been having difficulty reading since the migraines, but not sure if that’s due to the migraine hangover effect, which I’m constantly getting due to the regularity of them. My eyes have also felt like they’re going crossed eye but I can’t control it and the room spins. Only lasts a minute or two though.
Any help would be much appreciated.
