Hi since last Friday (31st Oct) I have been expriencing a violet headache and severe nausea, with bloating, indigestion and cramps. I have also got pains in both arms feeling extremely tired and emotional.
I have never suffered from Migrane and put it down to this and started taking migraine medication with nurofen and tablets for the nausea as recommended by my pharmacist but this has not helped the symptoms.
My head feels like it has extreme pressure on the front forehead and back of head.
The nausea is like pregnancy sickness (which I suffered from extensively) but I am most definetely NOT pregnant.
The indigestion is constant and I have even had slight vomitting with burps.
I am suffering from flactulance which is extremely bad smelling but my bowel movements seem normal.
My arms, especially my right one feels tight like and sore just like your arm feels when you are having your blood pressure taken and the armband is too tight!
Going by your symptoms,it looks like migraine headache to me. Migraine headaches usually are described as an intense, throbbing or pounding pain that involves temples or forehead and change sides from one attack to the next. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, facial pallor, cold hands, cold feet, and sensitivity to light and sound commonly accompany migraine headaches.
Treatment of migraine involves using a cold compress to the area of pain, resting in a room with little or no sensory stimulation (light, sound, and odors), withdrawing from stressful surroundings and sleeping. You can also try over the counter pain killers like aspirin or acetaminophen. If still the symptoms persist, then please consult a physician for specific anti-migraine therapy(triptans and ergot preparations).
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
