On Tuesday I had a silent migraine. The zig-zag lines, the tingling in one of my hands, and just a general feeling of ick. My last one before that was about 2 months ago. I am just spiraling bad. I am horrified by lights because I feel like they are going to trigger one. I wear dark sunglasses basically all the time now. Every single thing I see out of the corner of my eye I am convinced is the store of one. I have been googling stroke symptoms non-stop and keep checking myself for them. I feel weak and dizzy and all my muscles are tighter than hell. I can't stop. I keep reading how migraines make your stroke risk higher and it's making me horrified. Eye floaters scare me. I just can't calm down. The only time it's even a little better is at night when there aren't so many glares and sun lights and I can have my eyes adjust and I feel a little better but basically, all day is pure hell. Please help me, I'm getting really bad. To the point, I don't even want to leave my house or look outside.

Honestly it not something I know anything about. Hence no reply from me. Had a few friends who always suffered from Migranes. I saw how bad they were when they were having one. Nearly always needing to close the curtain and rest. They are all very healthy people today. Not sure if their headaches are still as bad. I would assume they are for life? You either have them or you don't. But also having anxiety can make things even worse. Having a bad day with the headaches and you feel other pains. Thinking one is leading to the other. At most I could suggest regular check-ups. Just make sure everything else is in order. Sorry I can't be of any more help to you on this topic.
