Hello all, i have visited in the past in relation to my chronic pain w/ rsd of the foot, and more recently after all the resulting surgeries form my hysterectomy.
I have been suffering migraines since my hyster.  Today however has been different. I dropped my kids off at camp and had a mild headace. On my way home, i got lost twice and could not remember where it was i was trying to go (which only lasted a few seconds or so each time). then i went to walgreens to pick up my frova (the abortive migraine med i use) where i promply ran over the yellow plastic lane markers, like my vision or perceptual awareness was way off. Then on my way home i slightly lost my bowels. I took my meds when i got home, which did not work and the migraine hit hard. VERY sore neck, pain running up the side of right head and some slight tingeling on face and top of head.....none of that is abnormal for me , but i am more worried about the strange confusion/visual issues. At home i have also walked into my walls 3 times tonight. I went to bed at about 11am, but am now back up at 2am due to the pain. Should i seek ER treatment or try to get in w/ my neuro in the next few days?????  any advice is welcome and sorry for they typos. time to close the computer, light hurts.....feel well my friends.

Thanks for seeking support at our site. i am concerned about you. The fact that you got lost for a few seconds makes me think of a mini stroke ,but Im not a doctor. yes you have migrane but it seems like something else is brewing but I dont know what.

you might want to seek ER treatment if you feel up to it.

Please keep us updated to your prognosis.

Unless you can get an appointment right away, I agree you must go to the er.  Those things that are going on could be nothing or could be something and if its something, it best not to wait, the sooner you find out there could be actions taken to minimalize what ever is happening.
Dont wait to long, take care and good luck to you, hope you are feeling better.

I agree, don't wait with this. If your doc won't see you today, go to the ER.

Hi Shannon~

Have you sought any treatment? And if so how are you doing? I would agree with others about seeking medical care ASAP and also ... please don't drive until you find out what is causing this and find relief for it. It would be so easy for you to have a tragic accident with this going on and no one wants that to happen.

Take care~

Hello everyone, thank you for all the great advice.
When I woke up that moring my head was killing me so my sister in law drove me to the ER. When she got to my house, she said " what is wrong with your eye?" I look in the mirror and my left eye was drooping quite a bit. The ER moved pretty fast,doing a CT, MRI, and spinal tap. ALL came back clear so they did rule it a bad migraine. I stayed 3 days in the hospital.

We are almost a month past all this and I have still been having daily headaches and visual issues off and on. The last few days have been worse though. My left eye droops off and on and this morning woke up to my right eye drooping and my vision in that eye very affected and blurry. I am seeing my Neruo today at 1:45, so I am not going back to the hospital (completely sick of hospitals between the headaches and my ulcerative colitis). My husband won't let me drive the kids to/from school and he wants me to go back to the ER....I don't really think there is much more testing they can do, so hopefully the neuro will have and idea.

Thank you for all your kind words and support, it means the world to me. gentle hugs today!
