I think I had a migraine yesterday for only the 2nd time ever. First one was a year ago and I blew it off as just a terrible headache. Yesterday I woke up with a headache and I took 2 ibuprofen and then took a shower. It didn’t help so 45 minutes later I took 2 more ibuprofen and went back to bed. I didn’t eat until 4 hours after initially waking up because the headache was upsetting my stomach. I couldn’t sleep the entire time because there was no relief. I remember that anytime I laid my head down, that spot hurt enough to cause me to keep my head up without touching anything. My neck was stiff too. I remember keeping the lights off in the room but I eventually opened the shade on one window since it was raining all day. I noticed my tinnitus was more apparent than normal so I kept the TV on as background noise. I ate my only meal of the day at 8pm. I went to bed at my normal time and took no time at all to fall asleep.
I had no other symptoms other than being dizzy and tired. I woke up this morning with no headache but man I feel like a train ran over me. I feel like I’m in a haze, I can’t focus on anything, and I really want to sleep. My neck is slightly stiff and I have a slightly dull headache, not enough to warrant taking anything. The thing is, I’m 49 years old and no one in my family has migraines. Why now?
