During a migraine, if you encounter any of the following symptoms, get medical help right away:
- An acute or sudden headache
- stiff neck
- elevated fever
- weakened muscles
- Changes in speech or vision
- A tingling or numbing feeling
- Confusion or altered mental state
A severe case of migraine can result in discomfort, light and sound sensitivity, nausea, and vomiting. Your quality of life may suffer as a result, missing work, school, and other life events.
If you’ve been diagnosed with migraines, it’s critical to recognize any dangerous symptoms that might call for immediate medical attention. These are the indicators that it’s time to think about getting to the Emergency
.Even a mild headache should be treated urgently if it develops suddenly in an adult over 50.
Seeking medical advice is warranted if you have a new or changing headache pattern, particularly if you have a history of heart disease, stroke, liver, or kidney disease.
Aura migraine, which manifests as altered vision or neurological symptoms prior to the headache, may raise your future stroke risk. Talk to your doctor about symptoms to look out for in an emergency.
