I've told my son he should see the GP but of course it's now the weekend, when I picked him up from work last night (well it was 12am) he told me that when he set out to catch the bus to worl yesterday aternoon, he suddenly felt unwell, he got up about 1pm, set off for work about 2, the busstop is 5 mins away, just as he got there he started to feel queezy, he started to retch as he felt he was going to throw up then he said it was like a black curtain was coming down over his eyes, everything slowly went black but he knew his eyes were wide open, he heard the bus pull up and told me he downlt know how he pulled himself together to get onm cos he couldn;t see anything, he said he felt people must have thought he weas drugged or something. This is all very unusual for my son as he is very fit and not prone to illness. anyway, he says he managed to pay for his fare even though he insists he could not see, he heard the change in the coin tray and picked it up then went to sit down, he says he didn't know if he was going to actually sit on a passenger as he couldn;t see! Whilst he was telling me thid as we drove homne it sounded so bizarre! Anyway, he then says as he sat down he suddenly felt soaked in sweat from his head and put his head down and had a massive headache and felt sick, He says he stayed that way for a while, it takes 20 minutes on that part of the bus journey to work, by the time he got to town he says he opened his eyes and could see oh abnd didn't feel sick anymore, but the headache stayed with him in a milder form all day.

sorry I hade reached maximum chars (sic) apparently
So i listened to all this and suggested 3 times it was probably a migraine attack, we went through what he had eaten and his sleep pattern etc. He was very adgitated by it all tough, I said then and there we could go to casualy as we were driving last, but he was tired by then as he had worked 3pm - 12.30am.
Anyway, I left for work at 6.30 this morning and he went at 12pl, so i haven't seen him today. Does it sound like migraine
sounds like migrane, should see a GP
no idea what it could be, some sort of migraine maybe?

but have you got a walk in medical centre near you? we have one in our town and waiting time is usually no more than 30 mins. Thats quicker than the GP surgery
sounds like he nearly fainted
May well be a type of Migraine, they take many forms.

I'm typing in the half light sorry, I've put the big light on now lol
Migraine? I've had them with visual disturbance and I've thrown up with them. And I'm often left with a less severe headache for a good while after - sometimes a day or 2.

It struck me that it was a migraine, but he has never had anything like it before, he's 24 (I think, hang on, sept 1986, yes he's 24.) he wears glasses for t'intenet and tv, but they're quite a new prescription, he hadn't been on his xbox, he uses a iphone alot, texting, he also gets up , has a shower and then sets off to work, never has a drink or food before he goes as they searve food at the pub.
I get dreadful shivering fits with them.
Empty stomach won't have helped.
Frightening for him, dot. It's a sort of migraine I get (without headaches) but with sparodic impaired vision. He's too young for such symptoms; get him to the GP & hopefully all should be sorted. I take daily aspro.
I was always prone to fainting when i was younger.I would normally pass out, but I remember once everything going fuzzy and black and walking around in a daze. After a short rest i was ok.I used to sweat too.
I was told i had low blood pressure but i also remember my doctor telling me to make sure i had a good breakfast.
How old is your son?
sorry i missed that you said he was 24. x
I had a similar sort of thing years ago very frightening as usually by the time you get to the docs everything seems ok, it did in my case anyway. Eventually I got to the docs while I was having an attack and he found I had very low blood pressure. Taken a small dose of apirin ever since and everything is fine. Get him checked out as soon as poss and I hope all is ok.
There are so many sorts of migraine and people have different triggers for them - do get him to see his doc without delay. He shouldn't just leave it - I know how frightening some of these symptoms can be. It needs to be on his medical records in case he does have a collapse at any time and people don't know what's up - and he can have medication to take when he feels an attack coming on. Whatever it is, it ought be investigated.
dotthy -- migraine ---100% sure . ---see doctor.
This sounds frighteningly familiar to me.

Yes - I have no idea why. Maybe it has something to do with the sweeties that he knows are in the drawer.
One of my colleagues was telling me a while ago that she had had some tests because she was getting attacks where she went completely blind for a period of time. The powers that be came to the conclusion that it was migraine. She was in her late 30s when she developed it so it can happen anytime.
