The worst i have had. Thought i was going to die this time. Alone and scared shitless. Vision was almost nil with pretty frequent vomiting. Pain 10/10. Given Verapamil at hospital. No imigrain because pain had subsided by the time i got there. Neck pain for another couple of hours. First time suicidal thoughts have entered my mind but ok now
