Hello. Never had a migraine before (aged 44) and something's hapened to me and I wanted to check if it is a migraine, and if the after effecs are normal?
On thursday, i started to get a squiffy feeling in my tummy and just didn't feel 'right'. Shortly after that, I felt like I'd been sacked on teh side of the face and got the worst headache i'd ever had. I went home ill, vomitted when I got home and slept for 2 hours. When I woke up, the left side of my face (tongue included) felt tingly. I went to GP on Friday and checked me over for a stroke but said it was probably just a migraine and ring 111 if I felt any worst...
Saturday and I was in the worst pain imaginable. Rang 111 who told me to go to A&E. Because I said that the pain was sudden and immense. they were worried about bleeding on the brain and I got test to rule that out. Again, I was sent home and told it was just a migraine.
So now we're onto monday and my head is not sore, but my face is now totally numb (the tingles have stopped). My eyeball feels numb, so does half my tongue and half of my face (all on the left). I still feel really light headed and not hungry at all. When I force myself to eat, it just feels and tastes like sand.
Does this sound like a migraine and is this numbness normal?
