Went to ER 2 months ago , dehydration

User Profile
I went to the ER 2 months ago for dehydration that lead to a severe/vomiting migraine. I\'ve had about 10 migraines in the past 3/4 years and I\'m a 33 female. Since the ER trip I have had mild/moderate headaches almost daily, light headedness - and the light headeness def derives from activity (gym, playing sports) the past week i have had chest pains - heart rate really fast - uncomfortable and if i take deep deep breathe it\'s really uncomfortable. overall I\'m not sure what to do or who even to get checked out by, but these daily headaches are now effecting my everyday. My job is pretty stressuful and I\'m a non-smoker. Smoke weed every once in a while in the past 10yrs. Did the severe migraine cause all of this, should i get an MRI and what doctor should i go see? look forward to a response...

Thanks for using this forum......

Stress precipitates migraine attacks ..even coffee,tobacco and coco is known to do that...some migraine attacks are severe but usually the headaches resolve with medicines ...if you are not taking any medicines,consult a neurologist to help you out....

take care
