Random scary symptoms
Hello everyone, I found this helpful site today while searching for symptoms I've been having. I really appreciated the concern and help that others have received. Hopefully someone can help point me in the right direction.
I get tension headaches about once a week and have all of my adult life. Its normal, I deal with it. I have mild hypoglycemia but not diabetes (I've had this since I was 16 and regulate it very well with diet. Basically, I eat a small snack every 3-4 hours and I'm fine.) I have pretty low blood pressure (110/70 is high for me) and a low basal temp (96.5 F) I drink pleanty of water and take a multivitamin every other day.
But 3.5 weeks ago, I had a migraine. (I've not had migraines since a huge stress episode my sophomore year in college, 7 years ago, I de-stressed by dropping a class and the migraines vanished). I went to my GP who ruled out meningitis and said it's migraines, go home, take some OTC and fill this Rx for Imitrex in case there's another one. I stopped taking my MV b/c I was concerned about drug interactions.
I've had 5 migraines since then (complete with light and sound sensitivity, nausea, and a terrible pain behind my eyes) and have had a low grade throbbing headache behind the eyes between migraines. I have increasingly been experiencing a feeling of lightheadedness in the past 3.5 weeks and have had random bouts of dizziness accompanied by vision constriction in increasing frequency (not associated with sudden movements or standing/sitting up, just random - sometimes while lying down, sitting at my desk, walking down the hall, no pattern).
Any thoughts? Again, not looking for a diagnosis, just looking for some ideas of what it might be and where I should go. I've put a call in to my GP and should be seeing him again in the next few days. Thanks for any guidance anyone can give me.
