Hey everybody.... Just a quick question. For the whole day now, I've been feeling pretty sick. At around 1:00pm I had a headache. I guess it had been slowly building up until I really noticed it around that time. Anyways. With that headache, I felt extremely nauseous and dizzy and my vision was blurred. It was blurred for about 2 1/2 hours. It's not anymore, but I still have a bad headache and feel as if I am going to vomit. Anybody have any idea why this might be? My mom thinks it's because of my period, but I highly doubt that. When I get "period headaches" they're not like this. I can't get to a doctor tonight, and even if I could, my mom wouldn't take me, so I was just wondering if this has happened to anyone or if anyone might know what's going on. Also, I tend to get headaches (and really bad headaches) pretty often and it's not just in one place, it's all over. It's seem to have gotten a little better as the night goes on, but I'll be fine when I'm sitting, (the dizziness) then as soon as I get up, I get extremely dizzy again.....
A little help please? Thanks!

I couldn't tell you for sure, but that sounds like a migrane. I think you should go on ahead to your docters and find out what the problem is. That sounds like a lot of pain to deal with.

Celtic Daisy is right, that sounds a LOT like a migraine. I get them, but to a lesser extent. You really need to go to the doctor and find out for sure though ans they can prescribe medication to ease the pain. A lot of food can be triggers for migraines like chocolate ect so you probably should find out what you could cut down on to maybe reduce the chance of getting any.

I can sympathise with you so i hope you feel better soon!

I used to get migraines and headaches a lot also. I rarely eat chocolate now, and blow dry my hair before going to bed. That might give you headaches. I hardly ever get them anymore, though. Here's a link to migraines and headaches for more info:
Migraines (click)

Taken fromt he link above:

"Attacks of migraine headache may be associated with allergic reactions, bright lights, loud noises, relaxation after a period of physical or mental stress, prolonged muscle tension (or tension headache), lack of sleep, smoking or exposure to tobacco smoke, missed meals, specific foods, alcohol use, caffeine, menstrual periods, use of oral contraceptives (birth control pills), and other conditions. Foods associated with migraine include foods containing the amino acid tyramine (red wine, aged cheese, smoked fish, chicken livers, figs, some beans), chocolates, nuts, peanut butter, fruits (avocado, banana, citrus fruit), onions, dairy products, baked goods, meats containing nitrates (bacon, hot dogs, salami, cured meats), foods containing monosodium glutamate (an additive in many foods), and any processed, fermented, pickled, or marinated foods."

Hope that helped! Deanna
