Hi

I've just joined OUCH to try and reach people who understand how this feels and hopefully get some advice.

I'm nearly 20, diagnosed about 2 years ago and suffer irregular but very intense bouts.

Referred to neuroligist a couple of months ago, he's booked me another MRI, (had one about a year ago which was clear) he wants another to double chek and also Angiogram I think it was.

In recent weeks I've had a bad attack immediately following a night with a couple of drinks, one of which I am 2 days into and in agony. Been to AE last 2 days to get O2 relief with the usual 4 hour wait in agony. Oxygen really helps not completely but eases it. Sumatraptin injections prescribed too but when really svsere like now have little effect altough Over last 2 days have had about 2 injections a day to try and help.

Tonight I have a strange feeling over and around my left eye and upper check, slighlty numb, bit tingly but only other way to describe it is feeling 'tight' in that part of my face / head.

Has anyone else felt this? Wonder if it's side effect as I have had several Sumatraptin??

Going to see if it settles but seeing GP tomorrow to try and push for oxygen at home again. She refused last time even after Neurolgist sent letter recommending it for me. Going to print stuff of from here to take.

I now know that alchohol is a definte trigger so that's out for me now for sure.

How did you get on at the doctors?  And contact your neuro if you are still having those symptoms.
