I’d greatly appreciate some input here. All of my experience with this condition started with dizziness and then headaches dispersed here and there, sometimes going away for months at a time then coming back having a few a week for a few weeks in a row. But they have run their course, so to speak, either going away after about 48 hours or less, or getting reduced pain or stopped with NSAIDs or sleep.
LAST NIGHT, however, I had a headache, 2nd worst pain ever, for about 9 hours then got a shower. When I got out I had a great bit of dizziness, which is normal for showers for me sometimes, and I remember feeling frustrated but not anxious.
I then got really dizzy, sweaty, nauseated really bad (got up to grab a Tums as my ginger mints were doing nothing), breathing hard, and overall just felt “weird.” At first I thought it was a panic attack…but then after trying to relax and with time, 1 hr later my breathing returned to normal and my head pain just “melted” away. I was then able to go to bed, feeling exhausted, but felt really “strange” still in bed. I can’t describe it, maybe an all over body numbness/sensitivity, like a bubble was around me? This AM I still feel “weird” and a little nauseated but knock on wood the pain has stayed away. I realize most migraine sufferers would be elated that the pain just vanished, but I’d rather not have the nausea and all the weird symptoms that came with that experience.
Is that how a classic/normal/episodic migraine ends for most “regular” migraine sufferers? I’ve never had such an episodic experience and I have no idea what I just went through! It could have been a panic attack too, but would a panic attack have just “melted” the head pain away??
Any insight on what may have happened to be last night would be greatly appreciated!!! Right now I’m terrified of my next headache.
