Hello and welcome to HCM.
Thank you for your query.
From your description, this sounds like a migraine
Let me explain a few of the symptoms of a migraine for you, so you could better relate to it:
-Pre-migraine Aura (a mild headache + black spots in vision)
(irritation to light)
-Irritation and intolerance to sound
, neck stiffness
are all associated with a migraine attack
All the symptoms might not be present, but these are the most commonly seen ones. Also please note that migraines have found to have a triggering factor in different patients. For some it is stress, whereas for others it is related to diet (prolonged periods
, or over-eating), weather, etc. Once we establish a diagnosis of migraine, we can then talk to the patient and try to figure out the triggering factor, and thus avoid it. This is a condition which is treatable and avoidable.
The main thing you need to know is to recognize:
1. The cause and avoid it
2. The pre-migraine Aura, take medicine prescribed by a doctor to avoid the attack, and get some rest
I hope I have succeeded in answering your questions, you could write back to me anytime for further clarifications.
