This strange thing happened....Any thing similar happen to any of you?
I was eating sitting in my truck out of town on a sales call at the local Sonic Drive Inn. This policeman was parked headed towards me eating his lunch also. After about 5 minutes, I got this pain right up through the middle of the roof of my mouth through my right eye and I thought well, this is it. Tears streamed down my face, I might add unchecked, and I couldn't speak. I was stareing at this policeman and this thought came to me. ONE OF MY CLUSTER HEADACHES HAS COME ON ME FASTER THAN ANY ONE BEFORE AND I AM A LONG WAY FROM HOME. I AM GOING TO DIE RIGHT HERE IN MY TRUCK WITH A POLICEMAN LOOKING ME RIGHT IN THE FACE AND I CAN'T EVEN TELL HIM I AM IN TROUBLE! I know he thought I was crazy or something, because I know my face showed shear terror all over it with tears streaming down my face. After what seemed like eternity, I was able to move and cranked up the air to high and put my face right in it and I managed to leave, and get back home.
That was truly the worst feeling yet. I had been cocky and wasn't carrying my Imitrex Spray or Injections any more. I had left my security blankets at home. I guess I won't do that any more.
To describe the day....very hot outside...I was drinking something very cold (slushy) and before anyone says I drank the cold drink too fast and that was the pain, it wasn't. I have done that before and I know how that feels....this was much worse. At least I was sitting outside in the privacy of my vehicle and not inside at a resturant when this happened.....How embarassing that would have been...
Anyone have any answer of this strange episode? Anyone had similar situations? Each time I have a CH now, I just don't know what to expect.
