Hi, sorry for the long post but I am getting really worried!!! I was wondering If someone can help me. I am a 23 year old female. On the 9th of December I experienced a server migraine.( so I was told) The pain was awful nothing like I had ever experienced before! I was at work and suddenly my vision went, my speech went, my hands went tingly and cold to touch, I was sick and the pain in my head was like someone was constantly drilling a hole in my head. I was taken to hospital and put on a drip, i had liquids given to me for 2 hours.
I had pain killers given to me, and had my blood pressure taken and also had my blood tests. I really wanted to have a scan as I thought something was seriously wrong with me! The doctors said that I had described the perfect migraine and that if there was something nasty in my head it would be getting profusely worse and wouldn’t react to the painkillers so he didn’t let me have a scan as he didn’t think I needed to have one.
It has been 13 days since my migraine and I have been left with this bizarre feeling. The pain has gone but I still get slight throbbing headaches. I feel like I am exhausted all the time, my eyes feel strange like a can’t focus on anything properly and that things around me are moving slightly. I feel like I am in a way out of my head in a 3rd person. I struggle to concentrate..when I work the lights seem really bright and hard to be around. I feel dizzy. It sometime gets better but then comes back again.
I don’t know if it just in my head or if I am actually feeling this way. I saw my doctor on the 11th and told him that I was feeling this way. He told me to change my pill to the mini pill as that can cause headaches and said that the migraine has probably just knocked me back and my body is just recovering to the medicines they gave me. He told me to come back after a week if I was still feeling the same. I am seeing a doctor on the 31st. I’m hopping they will be able to help me as o really want to get back to myself!!
Has anyone had the same thing?? Can anyone advise what they did to change it and get back to their normal self?? Please advise I’m on desperate need!!! I feel like I am going out of my mind. It is so hrs to explain to people as well!!
