I don't get headaches. Well, maybe once every 3 or 4 months I will have a mild headache. Yesterday, completely out of the blue, I had the worst headache I've had in years.
Yesterday while eating lunch with Melissa, my parents, aunt, uncle, and cousin it just hit me. I felt perfectly fine before going into the restaurant. As soon as I sat down at the table I started seeing spots. I just assumed it was the bright windows contrasting with the dark restaurant, so I didn't think too much of it. Be the time we finished eating I was no longer seeing spots but my head was absolutely throbbing. I went to the bathroom and saw in the mirror the veins in my forehead were bulging out. I had never experienced anything like this before.
After returning home I took some ibuprofin and went to bed. I ended up sleeping for 4 hours. I was pretty disoriented when I woke up around 7 p.m. thinking it was the middle of the night. But the good news was the throbbing headache was gone. I felt tired and weak, but this uncomfortable feeling was nothing compared to what I was feeling before the nap.
So in short, I felt terrible yesterday, but I'm much better now. No need for worries.
