Ok here's the whole story of what's happening to me I hope somebody out there can give some advice because I've been reading a lot and it's just making me more Paranoid.
Ok everything started last Sunday I went to church with my wife and daughter and after that we when out to have some lunch so to make the story short I had a couple of beers there and a couple more at home until i fall asleep. The next morning I woke up to take my daughter to school with some pain on the right side of my stomach and a headache which I tought it was a normal headache because of the beers so I got back and I fall sleep again and I slept for another 8-10 hours which I tought it was very unusual. I work graveyards and I drive all night for 8-10 hours and I sleep 6-8 a day. So when I got up I felt like a pressure on my left side on top of my head so I went to work and I ended up not working that night and I went back home and went to sleep again rolleyes
By Tuesday morning I just felt like if I had something on my head right there on the left side on top all day and at night while I was working I felt a weird pressure on both sides around my temples area and a slight fever too. And then when I go to sleep I guess I forget about it but as soon as I wake up I can feel something there still. I'm really scared because wednesday thursday Friday and Saturday I felt like if wasn't myself I didn't want to do anything everything bother me and overall I didn't feel good I just felt weird. On Sunday we did the exact same thing so I was feeling a ill better so me being a dumbas mad Drank 3 beers and after that when we got home I was in so much pain but this time it was on my right side. I don't know how to explain it but it was horrible a big pressure on my right side and even my Top denture on the right side felt weird so I took a "migraine relief" and helped me fall asleep. So on Monday I decided to go to the dr and I explained her everything im telling u guys and she said it has to be a migraine and she told me to go get a CT scan with no contrast to make sure everything is fine and she's gonna see me again in 2 weeks. But I keep getting this slight fever all over my forehead and on my left side it feels like its numb or something I don't know how to explain it. Today I was good all day but then I got home ate dinner and the same thing started feeling weird on my forehead left side, slight fever again and the same story so I just took 2 Advil PM and I felt like if my face on the left side was numb but after 20-30 I feel better I guess nono Does anybody had a hot this symptoms??? Pleaseeeeeee!!!!! Help!!!! idea

Hi I hope your Dr ruled out stroke and heart attack. If she did then it is possible you are developing a sensitivity to beer and all salicylates. I suffered from headaches and dizziness all my life. 5 years ago I discovered that I was Salicylate Intolerant, allergic to aspirin and all foods containing salicylates. Aspirin is a salicylate that comes form the bark of the willow tree. All plants produce salicylates as a natural insecticide. It is in things likes fruit,most vegetables, tomato sauce, olive oil, wine,beer and many more. Theres a good list of foods in the book,"Salicylate Intolerance and The Healthier I Ate the Sicker I Got."

Right before I hit bottom I had such a pain in my right eye that I went for a CAT scan to rule out a tumor. Once I went on a low sal diet I got rid of my headaches,dizziness, nausea, neck pain, arthritis, asthma, dry eyes, nosebleeds and a foggy headed feeling.

No one should just accept a diagnosis of Migraine Headaches when they can prevent them by finding out whats causing them. Its usually a food intolerance. Unfortunately there is no test for Salicylate Intolerance because it isnt an allergy. You have to go off the foods that are high and very high in sals and see how you feel. Good luck, Joan
