For a couple of years now (maybe more actually) I get the occassional attack of what I have heard termed silent migraine. I get (almost without warning really) a violent electric-shock like feeling in my head where I am not able to focus and essentially just need to drop to the floor or hold on to something. Once that initial period (not more than a few seconds) passes, I am left with a 'hangover' where i feel very disorrientated, light headed and like my vision isn't right (blurry and difficulty focusing - especially walking down the stairs for example).
I have worked out that if I take Ibupfroen then it radically improves the hangover symptoms - almost clearing them entirely.
Has anyone else experienced anything similar? I get this and semi-frequent tension headaches but not traditional migraines. I had thought it was linked to blood sugar initially but the pattern suggests otherwise.
All the best,
