I have been diagnosed with several different kinds of migraines, including chronic daily, cluster features, supra orbital and what is being called "gastro-intestinal cephalgia. It's been a long and rocky road, but little by little we're getting resolution sometimes partial, sometimes total; but today I had something happen that I have never experienced before.
At MHNI we classify our headaches from 0 to 5; a 5 puts me in the emergency room. This morning I woke up with a strong level 3, went to work and the headache was getting steadily stronger. I was trying to get something done to meet a deadline and hadn't treated the headache when I noticed the tell tale signs of an aura starting. My vision started to blur and when I closed my eyes I could see the aura, which grew rapidly.
Even though I treated the headache and aura when I saw this, a second headache began; I could actually feel a second a different type of pain in a different location it was stronger than the first, a level 4, all while the original headache was still going on. I have never experienced this before, and I haven't heard of it either. Eventually the neurontin took hold and it broke the severe pain.
Has anyone ever experienced this before? I'd like to know what others think about this too.
