Please can someone help me determine what kind of headache I might have if their symptoms match.
This has been going on a long time however up until I was 24 I only had the normal occasional headache, I’m 34 tomorrow.
Today I’m in pain and the day went like this: woke up fine, Metallic taste in mouth started, yawning a lot, feeling a bit nauseas, head pressure crept in like fluid in my head, ears felt full, pain and tightness under the ear/ jaw section, eyes feel pressurised, mild head pain which creeps into neck, upper and lower molar teeth hurt, clear nasal drainage, then it got worse and head felt like it was going to explode, neck and shoulders got very tight/sore radiating into biceps. Eyes stinging feel blurry as if they were dry. Nausea went up a level but I want to chew food. Throat tightness particularly where glands are. Nasal stuffiness, Hitting my head relieves some pressure temporarily so does cold in my mouth. General feeling of needing to fidget.
Then sometimes I get this other kind of headache which basically causes a piercing feeling/numbness/swollen/tickly sensation in my left eye, left side of face all the way into my left arm and shoulder, it feels numb but it isn’t truly numb as the sensation is horrible.
Anyone relate to this and does this sound like migraine or strange headache. I get no zig zag lines, I can tolerate noise although I get a general feeling of agitation. I’m wondering if metallic taste is an aura as it often preceded the onset of further symptoms.
I would really appreciate any feedback as I’m considering going to a migraine clinic.
