On average I have around 13 migraines a month. Last year I was referred to a neurologist who prescribed me amitriptlyn to prevent and then a triptan for when I have a migraine that won’t get relief from nurofen, paracetamol and aspirin. My migraines normally consist of dull aches sometimes on the back right or the back left side. It’s always accompanied with neck pain. I don’t have any aura with it but I do often suffer from light headedness and dizziness.
Today I woke up with a neck ache and took nurofen just incase the migraine was brewing but unfortunately it progressed and turned into a full blown attack. I took sumatriptan and tried to get some sleep. Woke up with a racing heart rate, shaking and boiling hot. Eventually made my way into the bathroom, started the shower on the coolest setting and got in. The shock unfortunately set me off and I was kinda violently sick. I’ve never felt so much force before!! Fortunately it was only my lunch that came up but I was left with an absolutely throbbing head and my neck was killing! I then came around and was very very cold and shaky. Started to wonder if maybe I had meningitis. I’m 21 and female but I’m quite the germaphob so I clean my hands before they get anywhere near my face. I didn’t have a rash and no seizures. Unfortunately no one was home and I was struggling to reach my phone to ring my mother because my head was that painful! No sensitivity to light or sound. Any ideas? Have I picked up a bug? Are my migraines getting worse? Brain tumour? I don’t feel I can make a doctors appointment because this is the first time it has happened. I feel a bit better now. Still have a dull ache and slight eye pain on the left side, shaking has stopped, slight temperature and I’ve taken some more nurofen and anti sickness tablets which are also prescribed.
