I have had migraines for years, i have been fortunate in that they have not been too frequent and so not impaired my life too much.
Typically it will be a visual aura alone or a headache then visual aura at some point in the next 24 hours, last night i had the most dreadful headache, mostly affecting the right side of my head,eye socket and ear area,this morning the pain was gone.
I still felt groggy but otherwise okay,went grocery shopping with husband,was talking fine then found i could barely string a word together, when i did speak it was babbled,nonsense words, i couldn't think of the words to describe simple things and then i could but it was all coming out wrong like made up words.
We got me back to the car, within seconds i had developed a visual aura but my speech had improved and 20 minutes later i felt fine, just tired and washed out.
I have only had one migraine with speech problems before and that was years ago, the doctor at the time reassured me that it was part of the migraine process.
However this morning has scared me, I am fine now, speaking fluently again,vision all good etc but can't convince myself it was a migraine, i really don't want to sit in a&e for hours especially now that my symptoms have gone aside from the tired,groggy feeling.
Does anyone else get this? I will of course speak to my gp when i can but i am scared in case i'm about to have a stroke.
