    Default hey guys....boy did I just get a scare

    I spent the last 4 hours in the E.R........

    I was at work and everything was fine, then all of a sudden.....I loose the vision in my right eye.....this has happened in the past but never have I had a headache and sick to my stomach at the same time......I had my very edge peripheral but the center was completely dark

    My first thought was migraine but the doctors dont think so.....

    and I couldnt remember when the last time it happened until my best man reminded me that it had happened the morning of the wedding when we went fishing....it only lasted for a few minutes that day.....

    so anyway the nurse gets a little rushed and sends me for a cat scan.....the doctor wants me to get an MRI, but tells me that my insurance will deny one or the other if they are done on the same day....so now I have to wait till wed, when I can see my primary and have him send me for an MRI...

    so now I am pretty worried.....

    I just want to know what it is.....so that I can stop thinking about it......
    I cut things up and split them down!

    What makes them think it is not a migraine? I know that a bad headache and nausea together can be of some concern. Maybe after you bumped your head etc. If you have a history of migraines I wouldn't be to concerned. If I got worried everytime that I threw up because of one I would be worried all the time. If you had something really wrong with you they would have seen it on the the CT anyway.

    Did he stop sweating? If so that is the start of heat stroke setting in.

    I will tell you one thing.Carrying around some salt tabs is a smart thing in the heat. Heat stroke kills a lot of people every year. It comes on quick and the only warning signs I know for sure is you stop sweating.

    Bowman,

    When I get my migraines it starts with my vision going "out of focus". Kinda seems like I need glasses. This last for 10-15 minutes. Then I get the aura. This will usually start in one eye and travel to the other. In about 30 mins or so I am 90 blind. I cannot drive or anything. Then comes the headache. When the headache starts I get really really sick. I don't vommit all time, but it is only because I do my best not to. Like I said they did a CT. If there is anything there or suspect then they will/should have seen it. An MRI will give them a more detailed image of something they want to look at. I've been in your shoes before. The best thing for you to do is to stay off all the MD websites. I had a blocked salivary gland on my lip and after 2 hours of being on the internet I diagnosed myself with cancer. The question is.....was anything seen on the CT?

    nothing on the ct scan.....I dont even know what the MD websites are......

    although when we were trying to figure out Maries problem, her grandmother used something on the internet, and had her hodgkins diagnosed before the doctors did......and she was 100% right
