I have a history of migraines for almost 10 years. First one was bad enough I was taken to ER and there BP was 200/125. Since then, most migraines do increase BP but not that high. Normal BP is 140s/80-90. Normally, migraines are sudden onset and include photoboia, nausea and heavy feeling along with headache . Last night, I was on the computer and suddenly realized I could only see 1/2 of the screen. After a bit, I realized I could not understand what I did see on the screen and kept trying to re-read what I saw. I tried to call a friend to ask about it and when she answered, I couldn t get out the words I needed to say. I couldn t think of right words and the words I did get out made no sense. I was totally aware of this fact and I was getting scared. She texted me and I had trouble understanding what she wrote and my texts back made no sense either. My kids were nearby and I started trying to read aloud and could not do it. Words I knew were coming out wrong and other words I couldn t even recognize. The kids kept correcting me. I started feeling very woozy, so I laid down. Very shortly, I got a very severe headache. I couldn t lift my head, couldn t tolerate light or sound. I took my BP and it was 250/140. When I tried to go to bed, I was very dizzy and felt like I didn t recognize where I was. I finally made it to my daughter s room and laid down. I woke up today feeling fine. I assumed it was a migraine but the more I read, I am not so sure. A friend suggested it might be a stroke, but surely I would know, right? Even if it was a stroke, does it matter at this point since all seems fine now?
