I always had migraines my whole life. I know what head pain feels like. Weird thing is I didn’t get a headache when I was having a stroke. Usually, a really bad headache accompanies a stroke. After the stroke, I got A LOT of headaches. Sometimes, they would last for days at a time and cause vomiting. For a few months after the stroke I was terrified and so was everyone in my life so I went to the ER a lot. I had a lot of CT scans but it was always OK. Just a migraine. Just? A really bad headache is nothing to take lightly at all. I think for some time after a stroke more headaches are to be expected. I never got a straight answer about headaches after a stroke from a doctor but on every message board about strokes there is a thread on headaches. They are better now. They’re further apart and they’re less intense. Hopefully, I won’t have to deal with this someday.
