It's true there are no doctors on C-D that I know of, but many doctors don't get it "right" with us anyway. I think I had heard there are some doctors here but diagnosing from a distance....
No, I have never had a migraine before until (maybe) last night. I still have a bit of a headache now but itís not as bad as it was last night.

Look up symptoms of Type II diabetes. That kind of sugar overload can trigger something "lurking" in the background. We have several physicians who post regularly but who won't offer specific advice as it is a liability. They will - and do - debunk some of the more outrageous claims ignorant people make.

Chinese food and MSG involvement in Chinese food cause a LOT of people to suffer...but if you are not feeling better today, best to go and get checked out medically....guessing about something that could be life threatening is NOT something to seek advice on the internet for....sure hope you are feeling better soon and this is a one time occurrence!

Good guess, crash.....

unexplained headache can be a symptom of a stroke. I had a friend who went to bed with a severe headache and never woke up....death attributed to stroke.

Headaches can be very serious, if OP is still concerned or having symptoms contact your MD to see if testing
is warranted. If I had a severe headache, I'd likely go to the ER.

Hopefully, in OP's case, it was from food additives..

What you explained it almost matches to a letter to what my son experienced the night before his graduation.
He spend night vomiting, no sleep at all and all for eating so much donuts along with McDonald meal, late evening before that night.
He was better the day after (the day of graduation) and all OK two days after.
So stress asks for sugar which intake you aren't able to control. its' aftermath usually teaches us a lesson.
"Free" food and fast food are seldom our good choices.

I think the OP answered its own question......something you ate!

That and stress seem to be my hypothesis. I have a LOT of stress/anxiety in my life lately (donít want to explain the circumstances to keep anonymity), which tends to have gastrointestinal effects, but never as bad as yesterday morning. I have a 2-week vacation from school in another two weeks so hopefully that will relax me.

Glad you're feeling better, xxblue. I'm not here to scare you, but as has already been mentioned, bad headaches are nothing to ignore. I had bad headaches for a couple years. I was even seeing a "headache specialist" for about a year, and he was treating me for migraines. (Wasn't working.) Then I went to my optometrist for a routine exam. He could see by looking into my eyes that "something is back there." It ended up being a tumor the size of a grapefruit -- large enough to make the training films.

A few years after that my wife started complaining about a headache, which was rare for her. Because of my previous headaches I wanted her to get an MRI. She visited her doctor about it, but he was sure it was caused by some meds he'd just started giving her for menopause and said our insurance wouldn't cover an MRI at this point. I accepted that, but told her that if the headache wasn't better in a week, we'd find a way to pay for the MRI out of pockets if necessary. She never lived that week -- blood vessel broke in that magnificent brain of hers and she was gone.

Please folks, don't ignore headaches that you can't explain.
