At first, Xavier Ortiz wasn’t too worried about his headache and sensitivity to noise, which set in one day last April. He was 20 years old and healthy, and suppressed his discomfort enough to play basketball with his friends.
But on the court, a few of the pals, who are nurses, noticed Ortiz’s drifting eye and urged him to go the ER. While there, he complained of a severe headache, light sensitivity, blurry vision, dizziness, and numbness on one side of his body, according to his girlfriend Natasha Sanchez, who had driven Ortiz there.
“He wanted all the lights off, he was covering his eyes, he was like, ‘My head’s killing me,'” Sanchez remembers. According to Sanchez, the clinician told them it was a migraine, gave Ortiz an IV and pain meds, and sent him on his way. Sanchez and Ortiz’s mom, who had joined them by that point, had to carry him out to the car. “I was like, ‘How is this normal?'” Sanchez told Insider.
