Hypnic Headache develops while I'm actually sleeping 2 to 3 times a week. They typically last until late afternoon. Nothing will relieve it, not even prescription for a migraine. I usually will get the headache after a day of being somewhat active.
If I sit home all day, my symptoms improve tremendously and I won 't get the hypnic headache at night.
During the day when I stand/walk more then a few minutes, I get lightheaded which then leads to nausea, abdominal pain, right arm/hand pain, numbness in left foot. My bladder/colon/stomach are often numb when I'm active. When I sit home for a day or more, the numbness improves a lot along with everything else.
Riding in a car will also aggravate my symptoms a lot.
Abdominal CT Scan came back normal a week ago.
I have been getting worse....a lot worse the last month. I'm supposed to see a Neurologist...waiting for them to call to set up the appointment ordered by my doctor.
Any ideas of what this could be? Frankly, I'm getting scared the way this is progressing.
