Hello All.  I'm in need of some help.  Here is my story.
 
Last tuesday I went out to lunch and came back and I felt a small headache coming on and I went home and had to throw up.  At first I thought it was food poising, but never had a headache feel so bad.  Wednesday rolls around and in the morning I feel good and then I go eat lunch and after two hours I felt a little nasauea and felt another headache coming on...so I go home and sleep it off wake up and eat dinner and sleep again.  Now thursday same routine eat lunch and then I feel REALLY nasaueas but I hold it in and go to my massage therapist and she worked out the kinks in my neck...didn't help...went home and tried to sleep it off.  Now it's Friday and I wake up sore from the massage and eat breakfast and I feel better.  Eat lunch again and this time I HAD to throw up because I felt the headache coming back again.
 
Sorry if this is a long story...I NEVER had migraines before and I'm not too sure if this is migraines or just food poisoning?  It seems like at night I feel better but once it's 3:30pm I feel the same headache and nauseas feeling coming back. 
 
Thank you all for your input :)

Just some quick thoughts - my head is not the best this morning.........is there a history of migraine in your family? Can you describe the pain? From what you describe it seems that the nausea and headache come on after lunch.........is there a particular food you eat consistently for lunch? Could certainly be food poisoning.......hard to tell at this point. Could also be migraine. Unfortunately sometimes it takes time to figure out what is going on. Are you taking anything to help calm your stomach down before you eat lunch? Just some things to think about. Leslie

Thanks for replying back. No migraines in the family. So the pai. Is all in my neck and head area. Throbbing pain not like a regilar headache. Like this morning i seem to be fine. We shall see what happens after lunch. It might be the food poisoning but its been 4 full days :(

Hi. See a neurologist as soon as possible. MRI will rule out or confirm some options. Any other symptoms? I suffer from Complex Migraine and Arnold Chiari Malformation.

Hi Everyone,

I'm not sure what happen last week, but now I'm better and I don't need to take any more advil. I am sick with a cold right now, but I'm getting over it. Thanks for everyone with their input.
