Good evening everyone, thanks in advance for taking time out give me advice. I think I experienced my first migraine today, but I'm a little worried. I always have tension and tightness in my shoulders and neck as I have desk job, but last night was different. I had a pretty stressful day at work and my muscles were a little more tense than usually, right before I went to bed it got worse to the point where i couldnt relax. I finally rubbed some muscle cream on and went to sleep. This morning I woke up with a dull headache and some more stiffness in my neck and shoulders so I called in to work to be a few hours late. Finally the most of the headache went away but i remained a little tense and stiff throughout the day. Towards the end of the day i was sitting at my desk talking to one of my employees when i felt a sharp almost stabbing pain on the right side of my head in the back. Immediately after that i started seeing spots, I started to panic a bit and then tried to focus as I also struggle with anxiety issues. The spots turned into a half circle with zig zags all in it and it was a brighter aura if you will, everything to the left side of that circle was just white and the rest of my vision was blurry. This lastest for about 15-30 minute. I immediately called my husband and he came and got me from work. By the time i got home the vision was back but then the intense headache/migraine set it. At this point it has subsided a bit and now its barely hanging on. I'm a little worried as to if it is a migraine or something more serious. Not sure if anyone can help but I am pretty young I'm 24 and average height and weight. If you can please help. I'm positive I'll be be up all night worrying, and I need to know if i need to make a drs appointment or chalk it up as something normal for a migraine. Please help!
