Migraine, or something else?

cheerful1_gwMay 6, 2010

The other night, I felt like my head was in a vise. I had chills and sweats. I thought it was subsiding yesterday during the day, but at night I had the same head feeling, and threw up. Not too much better today, and when I take a step, it feels like someone punched me in the chest.

I've had similar headaches before, but not the other symptoms. Anyone know what this may be?

Take Dr. Pris's advise and don't take my advise. Call the doctor. This could be minor or it could be very serious. I certainly wouldn't want to be responsible for someone not heeding the warnings by pooh poohing your symptoms.

Headaches like that could be migraines or they could be lots of other things including high blood pressure. Only a Doctor can tell you for sure and this is serious enough to get on the phone immediately. Call your Doctor you need this checked out.

Definitely see a doctor, immediately. A sudden, severe, new type of headache should always be investigated. What if it were something like meningitis?

If you've had migraines before, then you know that the severe headache is normal, as is the nausea and throwing up, but not the rest of your symptoms. Do see the doctor.
