Did I have a TIA?
By June 23 at 6:28 pm 692 15 1
or just a cluster type headache? My head, mostly on the left side near the back felt like it was sort of in a vice, I had PULSATING pain for FIVE HOURS at about a 8/10 on the pain scale. I was curled up in fetal position, eyes closed. Hubby tried ice, rubbing feet and wrapped a heating pad around my head. Finally came out of it. I was 2 seconds away from calling 911 since I was in so much pain I couldn't take anymore. I don't know HOW I could have even gotten into the car, you would have had to PRY me out of fetal position first.
The headache dissapated over the next day and by the following night was down to a minor nuisance.
But then last night my nose turned bright red and the left side of my face went numb for about 15 minutes.
I'm fine now.
What kind of test do I need now and is it too late since the episode is over?
And WHAT is going on? Does this have to do with my constant cranial neuropathies?
Thanks and HUGS, Julie
