My husband has had, during the weekend, what we believe is an episode of migraines: started with blurry vision and sensitivity to light, and then his eyes were sore. It took us a while to figure out what was going on, because neither of us has ever had migraines. He has always been sensitive to artificial light (he literally can't go into Target and similar big-box retailers, for example. If he is forced to, he can be knock out for a few hours, but is back to normal after that), but it has never been so debilitating in our own home.
He's made an appointment with his GP to get himself checked-out, just to rule other things. However, as much as he trusts his GP, doctors can sometimes be in a hurry and be short in information. Therefore, if it ends up being migraines, I would like the input from readers. I've never had migraines, and he is 43 years old and never had them before so far (or we have never identified them before as such). As you can imagine, we are researching about the topic, but I would love any suggestions you can give me, based on your own personal experience: what triggers an episode for you, how do you deal with it best, advice of any kind, etc. Thanks very much for whatever you can tell me, it will help us both calm our anxiety.
