I am a 49 year old man and something pretty scary happened to me the other day. I have only ever has a Migrane Aura once in my life but did not get the headache. I started getting lines flashing across my eyes, i got confused and could not get any words out, i could not read any words and started getting pins and needles in my left arm. I went to hospital and got a CT scan and other tests all which checked out ok. While i was in my hospital bed i went temporaryily blind which scared me a lot, this lasted almost 24 hours and it was not until the morning that i regained my vision although it was blurry for several hours afterwards. I am told this is a migrane a pretty severe one by all accounts. I was discharged from hospital but as soon as i got home i got the visual disturbances again but this time with the most splitting headache i have ever had in my life. I went back to ER and they admitted me again and gave me morphine which did not get rid of the headache. Overnight i has a lot of drips with medication in which finally got rid of my headache.What i need to know is if anyone else has had these symptoms and can you get rid of them with medication. I dont think i am the only one with this and hope someone has any ideas.
