Ok so my mom is 43 years old and has suffered from migraines ever since she was a little girl. she was taken to the ER on tuesday December 15th complaining of a really bad headache. they gave her meds, did blood tests which came out ok, and did a ct scan which came out ok. ever since she came out of the hospital she hasnt been feeling well. She has severe neck pain that travels to the base of her skull which is causing her alot of pain. she cant see right, shes nauseuous, she hasnt been the same after her visit to the ER. Usually shes ok after the hospital. again she went to the hospital yesterday december 20th because she was not responding to me. she was breathing but not answering so i called 911. when they arrived she started to respond a little but she was very irritable to the light and didnt want to be touched. when she arrived to the hospital they did the regular, CT scan, Blood tests, and it came out normal. I hate seeing her like this because there is nothing i can do. i dont know whats wrong and it worries me. today she has been in bed and isnt feeling well at all and has been vomiting. She still has the severe neck pain, nausea. I need help. something doesnt seem right to me. tomoro she is going to a neurologist so hopefully we will get some answers.

And if I remember correctly she still has them. She also wasn't able to find cure for this issue. I could ask her if she found anything that helped her. I'll try to post back. Regards
