think i just started having migraines. i rarely have headaches, but these (i have had two in the last two months) are debilitating. every muscle aches, my fingers, the tops of my feet, i mean everyone really. my vision is blurry, my walking is unsteady, if i move my head to look one way, i get dizzy, i feel like a drunkard, literally. the reason why i think it is migraine is because i have this unbearable pain in my head, behind my eyes, and ite not like anything i have ever felt before. my body shakes uncontrolably, like when you get the chills and you teeth chatter and you cannot stop it. i talk a hot bath, it doesnt help but makes me feel better, until i get back out of the tub again, then i am back in hell. oddly, both times lasted about 24 hours. the headache and body aches are minimal, but i am exhausted. what i did this time and last time was stay in bed for almost 24 hours, got up to go the bathroom, kept water next to my bed and got snacks when i got upset stomach. i know of many stories of people who get just wiped out like this because of migraines, but seeing as i have only had two incidents and they came on so quickly, litterally i wake up and feel muscle aches, take a bath, usually middle of the night when it wakes me up, and after taking asprin or one of the others, it gets full blown out within a few hours. when these incidences happened, i cried like a baby, and i dont cry on a regular basis, and i dont get sick on a regular basis. i get suicidal telling myself i cannot go on, and if this is what it feels like to get old (im 42/43) i cannot take it. so i am scared, irritated and feel bad for people i have to cancel plans with at such short notice, like meetings and important things, leaving them with no options.View Thread
