I'm new to the forum, I wonder if you could help me?
I have experienced migraines previously - headache, sickness, half blurred vision and had two migraines in the past month probably due to increased stress.
4 days ago I had a strange 'reaction' where my head/face went bright red, hot, tight chest, veins sticking out in neck and face. I developed a dull headache and felt sick. This happened over about 15 minutes and redness lasted about 2 hours. I was taken to hospital and checked for anaphylactic shock but told not. Doctor suggested vasovagal episode or possible food allergy (I do have food allergy) but wasn't sure.
I had just eaten an allergy trigger and also eaten chilli pepper and an alcohol shot.
I have experienced exactly the same thing about 3 years ago.
I now have brain fog still, 4 days later and this led me to this website. I started wondering if it was some kind of migraine.
Has anyone heard of bright red face and neck and pressure build up in head as a migraine symptom?
Thank you so much!
