Around 6 weeks ago I was lying in bed with my girlfriend at a hotel we were staying in when all of a sudden this shooting headache suddenly came on.. I had half a bottle of champagne half an hour before hand so just assumed it was from that but this pain was like no other it was also making me violently spew and feel absolutely terrible. If I hadn't have been with my girlfriend and at a hotel that she had paid for I 100% would have phoned an ambulance for the pain but really didn't want to embarrass myself for what could have been just a 'headache' i continued to lie in bed in agony while my girlfriend fell asleep. The next morning I still didn't feel 100% the pain in my head was a lot more mild however and I just felt really fatigued.. I had a holiday booked the following morning so was conscious if I went to the hospital they may keep me in so thought I'd fight what ever was going on. Three days into the holiday I got this horrible shooting pain in my head again and was again being violently sick and felt like i was genuinely dying this was when I thought enough was enough and took myself to a hospital in Palma and told them several times 'there's something not right going on in my head' 'it feels like fluid is moving around my head and its all numb' for the Spanish doctors to put me on a drip and keep me in for two nights giving me pain killers but not doing any checks on my head what so ever!!! When I got home from Palma I took myself straight to the doctors as I felt awful so tired no energy what so ever and feeling like someone was pouring water on my brain and a numbness at my forehead and middle part of head.. The doctor originally said this could just be a 'migraines' and said it will go away in 5 days this never happened so I went back to the doctors as I was so pale had no energy even going to the loo was a struggle, I was wakening up during the night screaming like and when wakening up it was like i could see someone in my room (all that is still happening now) and had this numbness in my head which wasn't going away in the slightest. They then thought it would be best to send me for a CT scan.. My results on the CT scan came back fine so the neurologists just hit me with 'this looks like migraines as you are Young and fit we don't think this is anything serious and it should just go away in time id recommend you going back to your day to day activities' 1 month on from that and no change what so ever I have a constant headache on forehead and still get the feeling like someone is pouring water over my head, I am struggling to fall asleep even when body is exhausted and even when I do fall asleep I will wake up within an hour 9/10 almost like I'm hallucinating and seeing things, I feel like my patience is next to none now when that wasn't the case atall, concentrating on things is a real struggle, I can be walking and I suddenly just feel like im going to pass out and I go all dizzy and have to hold on to something. Loud noises really get to me when they never used to for example a car horn or anything like that genuinely hurts my head. My skin is still as pale as ever when I usuaklly have a glow to my skin. I feel like my moods can change instantly aswell which before was never a problem with me however now I always feel down. I know for sure this isn't just 'migraines' I've had migraines in the past and this is completely different but I don't know what I can do. The doctors are telling me to just get on with it the neurologist said he thinks it's a 'thunderclap headache and he said at the absolute worst case scenario I've had a small bleed on the brain and been lucky as ive recovered from it but I feel I need to know if I've had one because I could end up doing something that you aren't meant to do after one and I wouldn't know. I think because I'm only 20 they assume it's nothing but I'm worried incase I try go back to how I used to be for example go back on a treadmill which would boost my heart rate and blood pressure and I get this sudden head pain again like I have twice before and this is the most serious one.. I have read people's forums who have had brain haemorrages and it seems like I am going through a lot of the things they are . Any help or guidance here would be greatly appreciated I really don't know what I should do
