I have been getting migraines an and off for about 25 years but sometimes going for years without any. In the last 5 years i have been getting them more frequently and they are getting worse. They are more painful and i have gone from just feeling sick to actually being sick.
To the point that last night i was close to calling an ambulance it was so bad.
I felt like it could not get more painful and if i moved my head something would 'pop'. My neck went all stiff as well, which is new.
It might sound melodramatic but i was really frightened and thought (probably stupidly) that i could have a stroke.
I have never taken anything for migraines, I tried a few things years ago but nothing worked and i feel so sick that i struggle to swallow anything anyway. In the past i have always felt that as long as i can get to my bed as soon as i know one is coming, the best i can do is just sleep through as much of it as possible.
But the last two i have had have just been spectacular and scary. I wonder if the fact i have had shingles (neck) in the last year and that i am of an age (50) where hormonal changes are occurring might be a factor.
Any advice gratefully received.
