I've read that people sometimes get a migraine so bad that they end up in hospital. I get migraines and I've identified that they're food-triggered, and have successfully reduced them through limiting my diet. I'd now like to test foods for re-inclusion but my experience so far is that re-introducing certain foods as a test has triggered far worse migraines than I've had before, so I'm going to need to be careful. I've never had to go to hospital with a migraine, though, and I'm wondering what it is about a severe migraine that would drive someone to take that option (given that many of us here are already bed/housebound and going anywhere is a big deal, even without an agonising headache). Can anyone tell me why you'd go to hospital with a migraine? Can they do something for you there that you can't do at home? Particularly interested in what the NHS does... not sure if there are national differences in drugs you can get for home vs hospital use. Thanks!
