I started getting a headache over a week ago, pretty constant and not unbearable. I was taking paracetomel without much effect. Saturday night it went full blown within 10 minutes. Agony in my head, neck and jaw. I was slurring, and couldn't walk. I have never had a migraine like this before. I took my migraine stuff from doctor (from last episode of migraine over a year ago) and two solpadol and went to bed. I slept for about 13 hours and woke with a mild headache. And all day today I still have a headache. Does this sound right for migraine? I've never had anything like this.
I've just phoned but it's a bank holiday here so it's closed until tomorrow. I'm just worried it gets as bad as it did the other night. If I had someone to take me in I would have went in then. I just don't want an OOH GP to think silly woman why you taking up an emergency appointment for a headache. I had that before getting a telling off by them. (I had sepsis btw and barely ever go to doctors).
Dipping Saturday night was literally the worst headache I e ever had. I couldnt walk, lift as my arms were so heavy and neck was so sore. I'm definitely not like that now. Just tired with a normal kind of headache. I was thinking of going to A&E but our kids were in bed and I couldn't have driven. I just went to bed with a sick bucket.
