It started out when I had to have a bowel movement.  I received no warning signs.  Went to the bathroom, took 3 advils after that, slept a couple hours and it was gone.  I was camping out when all of this occured.  about 2 or 3 hours later, I woke up to the sound of rain, so I got up to close the windows on my tent, and BAM!  All of a sudden, my head was pounding again.  I was taken to the hospital where they gave me an injection of dilaudid and phenergan.  I had vomited several times during this episode, also.  I was sent home with 2 prescriptions...1 for dilaudid, the other for phenergan.  I slept again for about 3 hours, and woke up with yet, another migraine.  I took a dilaudid, which started to take effect in about 20 minutes.  I slept, and feel ok now, but feel like I could possibly have another one.  I'm still a bit over-hung from the dilaudid.  Although I have a history of migraines, and had the whole work up several years ago, which it was determined that my migraines were stress related, NEVER have I had this many of them in a row, within the course of 24 hours.  Also, normally, when I get migraines, which is seldom since my divorce 14 years ago, I have warning symptoms.  With all 3 of these, I had no warning.  They were full force from the onset.  What do you think could be causing these?

It could be a lot of things. The bowel movement could point to a food sensitivity. I would try to remember what I ate that day (even new brands of the same type of food, if pre-prepared), and pay special attention in the future if you ever eat them again.

There is a lot of information out there about food sensitivity and migraine. You can read up about it.

If you were out camping, it could be that one of your triggers is a type of pollen from the trees or plants in your surrounding area. One of the worst migraines I ever had came when I was at a botanical garden in Montreal that featured plants that are not found anywhere near where I live. Another could just be the weather. If rainy weather is uncommon or a cold front brought the rain into your area, that could be the cause of it. I currently have a migraine that I've had since Saturday, which is when a cold front blew in. This is not the first time that this has happened. Also, could it be that you have had only 1 prolonged migraine in the past 24 hours? Mine last for days, sometimes a couple of weeks. I hope this helps!
