Okay...so...im really worried about my boyfriend right now...about an hour ago he came back from his friends house and he started to get a really bad migrane on the left side of his brain.(the logic side) He tried to IM me but he couldnt type right....or even spell... when I called him on the phone to make sure he was alright, he couldnt finish his sentences, he was studdering, he couldnt read, and he couldnt even think of simple words like "think" or "head". After a while of me keeping him calm on the phone he took some pain medicine and it started to go away.
This is the first time anything like this has ever happened to him. I dont think he has even gotton a migrane before. I told him to please get some rest and to go to the hospital as soon as possibble. Do any of you have any thoughts about what might have happened, Or have a clue what it was?

Hi Crimson Butterfly,

Welcome to Healing Well. Sorry to hear your boyfriend is suffering with this headache and other things too. It is very difficult for me to say what it might be as I have not had any medical training, and can only speak from personal experience.

However, I would suggest that he sees a Doctor at the earliest opportunity, even if the attack has passed! Get him to keep a note of the symptoms, the extent of the pain, say on a scale of 1 -10, 10 being the worst pain you could ever imagine, as this would be very helpful for a Doctor to discover what is going on. Note the dates and times as well.

Keep in touch and let us know how he gets on, take care

Hi Crimson Butterfly,

I agree with Ann, your boyfriend should see a doctor to rule out anything serious.

However, if it makes you feel better, I have had migraines with these symptoms. I have often felt so sick that I'm sure I have a tumour because I lose sight in my eye, experience confusion and many other strange symptoms that go away with the migraine. It is simply the swelling of a blood vessel putting pressure on part (or parts) of the brain that aren't able to function.

As a rule, whenever anything happens for the first time that is concerning, it's a good idea to see the doctor. As a migraine sufferer I have had many strange firsts and have found that even though I feel like I have a tumour or am having a stroke, it's just a migraine.

I hope this helps reassure you a little bit. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your boyfriend.

I cannot always control what goes on outside. But I can always control what goes on inside.

Since this is his first attack, he really needs to be tested, just to rule things out. Ask Brad69...
Most often the test come back fine, but sometimes they don't. Just a thought. I have had one mirgraine where I lost my speach, face went numb, weird things. AFTER test, ruled it a type of migraine. I hope he gets answers soon.
