Hello everyone. I'm just trying to look for some information regarding my current health as I am starting to worry myself.
I got my first migraine when I was 13, and have had a few of them a year if that. My migraines start with the 'warning' aura, when then progresses to severe headaches, vomiting, nausea and its hard to describe but also shifting in and out of consciousness. I rarely get migraines but I am often burdened with headaches.
A few weeks ago I had my first migraine in over a year and it lasted for 12 hours, but it was 10 x worse than I ever remembered it. It went for about 12 hours and came back for the day, then went and came back the next day. This stopped when I went to the DR and got sumatriptane. I haven't had my usual migraine again, however...
Since this incident I have a severe pain in my head and a constant 24/7 feeling of extreme nausea and I have lost my appetite. I keep getting this strange numbing sensation that shoots through the front of my brain and then my eyebrow muscle, or muscles under the eye will twitch for a second. Since the week of hell (my personal hell anyway I understand some people have it all the time) I am certain my vision has been altered. I can't find a way to explain it but I feel like my peripheral vision has been diminished greatly especially in my left eye. I don't believe I'm still having migraines because every single one I have ever had involved the aura and vomiting.
This weird vision loss has me in a constant state of fear as I think maybe its an aura and I don't want to have another migraine. I literally am in an almost drug like state during my migraines.
Anyway, despite the constant pain in my head, numbness and stuff, and the weird vision thing I'm being driven insane.
What's more, my stupid anxiety has led me to believe I have a brain tumour but I doubt it is this however the symptoms I have read almost match me completely.
I know that most people Herr have things way worse and I feel guilty speaking with such urgency but I really need help. Can migraines cause actual change in vision permanently? I'm going mad trying to think what could be.
I'm new here so sorry if I broke any rules or anything. If anyone could provide insight I would be most grateful.
(Not sire if relevant but I also have GERD)
