Here we go again

Just as I thought he had recovered Hans woke up this morning not able to put a sentence together, he now has his strange migraine with aura.
I probably have a week of guessing what he wants. I have given him a Sumatriptan 50 mg and he's now sleeping, other than that nothing will help.

That's awful Jan. Has it been diagnosed or are they still trying? I was wondering if it might be a form of cluster migraine? I had that for about 20 years at roughly three year intervals. It could last as long a two months with 8 or 10 attacks every day. It took a very long time to diagnose correctly and prescribe medication that made any difference.

I have thought for a few days this may be coming because of certain things he was doing.
To give you an idea of what happened today, I asked him before he got out of bed what he would like for breakfast, "If you have a boiled egg I will have one as well" and got up. Requesting an egg was strange as he is not keen on boiled eggs.

When he came out of the bathroom he said "I think I have" and was stuck for words so I finished it off "a migraine" and he nodded. He went back to bed I gave him the sumatriptan.
An hour later I asked if he would eat a banana, he had no idea what a banana was until I showed him, "maybe" so I left it with him. I then thought maybe he would still like a boiled egg , again he had no idea what that was until I showed him an egg, a definite "no thank you" banana not eaten either.
It will get worse, later on he won't know if he is speaking English or German.
He will be like a child, wanting to be cuddled, he also canīt see properly.
Its 18 months since his last attach, we had a visiting motorhomer staying the time, the time before that he was in hospital on the operating table having a stent implanted, that was a terrible time.

Nobody knows what causes it, we just have to let it run its course.

Sorry to hear about this Jan. I was hoping you would get a better start to 2019 after last year. Should you not call the doctor?

Thanks Alan and Barry.
He has been to hospital on three occasions, had the brain X-ray and the only thing they told him was there is definitely a brain, undamaged
It is called Migraine with aura, no headache but all sorts of other strange things going on.
As I said he was in hospital on the operating table the time before last, a long story I have told before, he had to be sedated for 3 days and strapped to the bed because he needed to be calm otherwise the wound where the vein incision was made could have broken open causing all sorts of problems. He had the brain x-rayed twice, all fine and dandy, he saw the neurologist after that bout, who also confirmed it was with aura and prescribed him tablets taken by epileptics to be taken continuously, Hans did not take because of known side effects.
We know he will get over it, hopefully soon rather than the 1-2 weeks it has taken in the past.
Iīll keep talking to you if you don't mind, helps me even if it doesn't do you any good

I think that's in the same bracket as his Sumatriptan Alan, must be taken at the onset.

Zolmitriptan belongs to a class of medications known as 5-hydroxytryptamine agonists (also called "triptans").

I have the feeling this is going to be a long one, he doesn't know Motleys name or mine.

I am so sorry to hear Hans is poorly.

I've never heard of the problem and now I feel useless (more so than normal) because having googled it I understand the issue a little better.

Yvonne used to suffer from significant migraine attacks, either on a periodic basis or on the first day of a holiday, but nothing like you describe.

Luckily, he's married to a good one, nurse Jan. Thinking of you both.
