Migraines returned after 16 years.

(Based in the UK).

There was nobody more surprised than me when I woke up the other morning suffering from a numb hand and numb mouth/tongue. Initially I thought the worst but realized very quickly that it was a migraine - my first after my last one 16 years ago.

I took the strongest pain killers I had and slept it off for another 2 hours.

The headache lasted for 3 days and then as I left a Kaiser Chiefs concert those 3 days later, I started with another. I can only put this down to the bright flashing lights. This was fairly debilitating as I could not see on my left hand side.

Anyone else thought they had grown out of migraines to then start suffering again?
