Urgent Help-She fell down

My wife is 26. She has been having strange pains in her head. Most of the symptoms are similar to Migrane Headaches.

When visited DR he said it sounds like Migrane

She would suddenly see fog and lightning in front of her eyes. Then, she would feel nausea and then throw up and immediatly, her head is struck with MAJOR headache!!! The pain is sever that she can not stand light or sound.\

The pain lasts hours sometimes.

2 days ago, she had the same thing which started at 10pm. the pain lasted until around 6am when she suddenly felt nausea again and she went to bathroom to vomit!! Her neck was so stiff and painfull.

Upon vomitting, she fell on the ground and was "out". I could not wake her up at all!! I carried her to bed and still could not wake her up!! Then she started to speak about an old issue in her life. When finally she woke up, she was confused and did not know where she was. He arm was so stiff and her fingures were so tight together!! minutes later her arm becamse loose!! Also, she recognized me!!

She told me that she remembers after vomitting, she was unable to stand and fell down and was "out"!!

Anyone knows what this could be?

Thanks

Re: Urgent Help-She fell down

It does sound like it could be migraines, but it also sounds like it could be something far more serious. I would definitely insist that she get to a neurologist and get to full work up just to rule out any problems with her brain, epilepsy, menenigitis, enchepehalitis etc. Don't just let it go at migraines until you've ruled all that out.

Good luck.

Re: Urgent Help-She fell down

Thanks for your reply

To add on, last month she heard very bad news about family and she was so upset that evetually was "out" and her left side was very stiff and paralyzed. 1 hour later she woke up and her stiffness became loose.

The Dr said she had a Hesteria attack due to the bad news she heard!!!

Maybe she has migrane headache triggering other problems

I'm sorry about your wife!

I had an absence seizure when I found out my aunt passed on this September. I was out basically for 3 hours. I don't have the vomiting, although it does sound like your wife has horrible mirgirnes. My mom had them as bad as your wife.

I fall alot with epilepsy. I've fallen down the stairs, slipped on the vacuum (don't ask about that one ).

I hope you get good news from your doctor! I hope she gets feeling better also!

Thanks Kat

I wonder though if falling is a part of the migrane or a different issue?

Since it does happen right after the headache is disappearing, I suspect the relationship there.
