Today I had something new occur…. It was a headache, the likes of which I’ve never felt. It’s onset was rapid, within moments, and so intense I took two Advil as soon as I felt the first pangs of it. It felt deep and was throbbing inside my entire head. Not five minutes later, I was popping two more Advil, but to no relief. The pain intensified, and I began to feel hot, sweaty, and very very sensitive to noise. And the pain continued to intensify. I couldn’t think, it literally hurt to try to answer a question. After a few moments of just sitting there, it felt like the pain was throbbing right along with my pulse. Finally, about 30 minutes later, it’s finally subsiding a bit. I can function, think, my temperature feels normal again, no more upset stomach. However, it still hurts toward the base of my skull and neck. It’s slowly going away, I think. And, as I said, this is a first occurrence for me. My headaches are usually light and in relation to my menstrual cycle, or sinus issues. I’ve never experienced the likes of what happened today. So….does this fall under the category of migraine? Or perhaps an extremely intense tension headache?
