Last night, a couple of hours after eating dinner, my head began to gradually start hurting until it was really pounding. Not only was my head hurting, but my face and neck were killing me as well. I also had some lower abdominal cramps and my shoulders and back hurt a little bit also. I ate a ton of dessert last night as well due to the fact that I donated a lot of money to an organization and was able to take a lot of baked goods from a sale they were having. I went to bed fairly early because of how bad I was feeling and woke up a couple of times throughout the night with my head still hurting. I woke up at around 7:30 with a little bit of nausea and still the headache, but less severe than it had been, and then I woke up a couple of hours later (because I had to) and immediately felt like I was going to vomit. I got a garbage can and sat up in bed holding it for about 10 mins until it passed enough for me to get up and shower. Thinking of the rich desserts I ate last night didn’t help, it just made me gag. I was still feeling pretty crappy as I got ready, and since I was going on a car ride, I even felt the need to bring a plastic bag with me. My stomach was still queasy on the ride, and I felt a little nausea but not enough that I needed to take out the bag. I just went on about my day as normal because I was feeling better every minute, and even ate a normal lunch. Now my head is hurting a little bit again but nothing else. I don’t understand why this happened. The cafeteria at my college is really awful and I had some Chinese food last night that they were serving, so I wasn’t sure if it was that or not. I don’t know how I could’ve caught a bug either. One more thing I can think of is that I have a very stressful life, so maybe it was getting to me in its own way. And it could have been a migraine also, but I have never had one before, and the headache wasn’t so bad that I couldn’t turn the lights on or open my eyes. I know not many of us are doctors, but based on my description of everything, what do you think could have been the cause of all this? I had a few weird dreams last night also.

Sounds like the stomach didn't like all the stuff you put in it. That sugar alone makes me shiver. How about MSG in the chinese foods.

Maybe. My head is hurting a little bit again now and I am tired, but I just donít understand this.

It sounds like a migraine to me. They don’t always have the effects you describe re the light etc.

Must be. I thought it might be the Chinese I ate, and I feel like if it was a bug I would have gotten sick already. My head is hurting again now, particularly when I stand up and bend over, but no nausea.

You could be developing Type II diabetes. Talk to your doctor.

Can't help but think it's the foods but what do I know. If it was me I would have taken a little baking soda to settle my stomach, but it's so hard to know what others are going thru.

Yeah, I still have a tiny headache upon standing now but it goes away. I have also eaten a lot today and been hungry, etc. I also didn’t vomit at all, so it could have been a migraine, or simple stress. I really wish I knew but I certainly don’t think it was a stomach bug. This morning, just envisioning the cake pops I had last night (which I didn’t like, they were disgustingly sweet) was making me gag. Now I’m fine though.

Do the stroke test for yourself. Any positive, see a doctor:

Page I saw also has link to notes on migraine.

Sugars will make your stomach acidic. I've done a lot of reading of acidic foods and stomach upsets etc. I'm glad you are feeling better. Do you have a history of migraines?

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....
