So about 3 weeks ago I started to get weird spots, blurs and swirls in my vision with a bad headache so went to the opticians and they referred me to the doctor.
Went to the doctor and he gave me co-codamol 15mg and that seemed to work but only for a few hours in the morning, vision problems and headache came back at around 11-12 in the morning so took more pills and that wasn't as affective as the first lot I took.
Went back to doctor to ask for some stronger pills and he referred me to the hospital ACU unit.
Went to the ACU and after 4-5 hours of them consulting various people they gave me naproxan 500mg to take with the co-codamol and asked to go back in 2 days if things didn't improve.
Things didn't improve so went back to ACU who then gave me a CT scan and that came up clear (thank goodness).
They still don't know what is causing it, things being thrown around are it being related to epilepsi which I had when I was younger and/or floaters in my eyes. They've sent me home and told me to just continue taking the combination of meds and see if it helps, if symptoms get worse or the meds don't work then they'll have me in to do more tests including an ECG (I think they said).
Been almost 4 weeks now since my head started banging with no sign of it going anywhere, I wish I knew what was wrong.
Now I need to book an appointment with my GP to get more meds before these run out in 2 days time...lovely.
Anyone else experienced migraines for this long?
