Did we ever learn *what* Link was stressed about?

Coby J Dingman on March 15, 2022 at 8:51 pm

The way Rhett looked at Link right before he wondered what he was going to be like when he is old. Combination of concern, confusion and acceptance. True friend, knowing he's not going anywhere.

Alison Menzies on March 1, 2022 at 12:14 am

I get those light flashes in the corner of my eye like Rhett described. A doctor told me it was eye strain and not to worry about it.

Kristina Glasgow on February 28, 2022 at 4:37 pm

Optical Migraines are horrible. It's like dead spots and they spread as the episode goes on. Blurred waves/spots. You can see them no matter if eyes are open or closed and same shapes in both eyes. I can't really see anything clearly when it happens. The first time one happened, I panicked and made an immediate eye appointment. I thought I was going blind. My dad is partially blind in one eye. His optical nerve partially detached. They did a full exam and said I was having a migraine. No head pain at all that first time. Now when they hit, I take pills immediately (Advil Cold and Sinus usually). The headache normally follows about half an hour or so later. I get them 3 or 4 times a year. Once you've had one, I hate to say it, but you'll probably have more. Medicate immediately.

Kristina Glasgow on February 28, 2022 at 4:21 pm

I flashed back to Daddy Garlic Fingers. LOL.

link, have you seen survivorman (les stroud) because if you like survival shows I think you'd like him. I love his show. this is the first car show I've watched and I'll probably check more when I'm missin GMM on the weekend cause it's pretty nice. long time fan, new member. I've been watching you guys since I was 11 or something (give or take two years) and now I'm coming up on 22. long winded comment but it's lovely to see all this.

Christina Coobatis on February 24, 2022 at 6:57 pm

Yesss, I got so excited when I saw Car Biscuits in the title! haha

I was in the hospital with meningitis and sepsis for a couple months, one of the things it caused was "mini strokes" from a blood clot in my brain. For about 3 years I would get pretty much the same thing but on the left and right side, not in my main vision. I don't get them anymore at all but the dr said it was from the mini strokes. I'm totally fine now, besides losing some of my hearing in one ear. Obviously that's not what yours is from but I do think it's something to get looked at! Catching something at the beginning signs is so much better than trying to recover from something serious. It could very well just be a migraine but knowing for sure is always better, peace of mind is the best. ❤️

Ginger Kanwischer on February 23, 2022 at 9:03 pm

My husband gets migraines like that every month or two. he immediately takes ibuprofen, gummies, and lays down in a dark room for 30-60 minutes. The doctor recommended he keep taking ibuprofen for 24-48 hours after to keep it from coming right back.
Hope you don't get them anymore. ❤️

Cody Campbell on February 22, 2022 at 4:51 pm

I don't like migraines I get at least once a year but sometimes more. they get so bad that i have to sleep to get rid of them

Lindsey Woods on February 22, 2022 at 3:12 pm

Love 'Car Biscuits'~ ^_^

Erica Boles on February 20, 2022 at 10:44 am

most of my migraines have been occular since i was a teenager. Id get an aura and then it would be followed by a horrible migraine.

Evan Jones on February 20, 2022 at 8:08 am

*gives my past sympathy*

Jade Avery (they/them) on February 19, 2022 at 6:35 pm

As much as I whole-heartedly agree with Rhett that this isn't exactly a biscuits and should have been called something else, I am so excited about what this means for the new format (no fan questions and just pure ramble). haha

Danielle Robertson on February 19, 2022 at 9:56 am

yeaaaah idk.

Kristy Musa on February 18, 2022 at 7:51 pm

The omicron shuffle...🤣 that was genius

Colene A Homa on February 19, 2022 at 2:51 am

Link, you might not be able to smell garlic but you CAN smell colors! 🙂

StormCrow on February 18, 2022 at 6:44 pm

wow, I didn't know garlic chips were a thing. I've been making my own for ages, and I do smell it the next morning

Shavany Gonzalez on February 18, 2022 at 6:43 pm

Link it sounds like an ocular migraine i've had them they suck

Ev Fields (They/He) on February 18, 2022 at 10:51 am

Here's my 2 cents: I'm glad these moments of stress are temporary with you, Link, but it wouldn't hurt to look into finding healthy ways to work through those moments, so it takes less of a negative effect on you. Just because you don't feel like that all the time doesn't mean you shouldn't try to better it [not saying you're not, I don't know your personal day-to-day actions]. I can't help but want to see you happy and healthy, my friend. I care about you and want to make sure you're taken care of. I will never apologize for that. I hope you're better now and taking care of yourself. I'll always be looking out for you.

Emilia Palo on February 18, 2022 at 10:44 am

I feel for past Link, I am similar with important things. But it also means that you really care about what is coming and feel it is important to do right. (Even if you know you're going to ace it, it still stresses.)

And while the headache is crappy I find the more silent and cautious Link kinda cute, too. It's also really nice Rhett understands you. <3

Christopher Loy on February 18, 2022 at 8:16 am

Link; it’s a migraine. I suffer from them often. It’s a migraine with an aura. The aura is exactly as you described. Then the headache follows. For me there are many other symptoms. Would definitely mention it to your doc. Hopefully they don’t become chronic like mine. They suck. Hang in there bud!

Rebekah Boyce on February 18, 2022 at 3:53 pm

Eye test while driving not recommended, huh... have you ever heard of Barnard Castle?

Beverley Smith on February 18, 2022 at 11:52 am

watching Car Biscuits (absolutely perfect 👍) during a baby hurricane here in southern England, making me feel much better about the sound of my neighbours metal fence about to uproot and fly indiscriminately through the garden! As ever I turn to RandL to calm stressful situations. Try not to stress Link, every moment is just a future past. Your comments made me think of a new song by Duran Duran called Future Past and that's a line from it. You should give it a listen it's a beautiful song 😁

Miranda Worthington on February 18, 2022 at 9:48 am

Hoo boy, wait until Link learns the c-bomb is both a nasty word and a term of endearment in Australia. It's totally fine to have a number of f-words on prime time television before they need to be beeped. Swearing is just part of the culture down here (as long as you're in friendly company).

Amanda Shortman on February 18, 2022 at 1:30 am

I've suffered from migraines since my teens, but only started getting auras (the visual disturbances Link experienced) when they suddenly became chronic a few years backnin my 30s. Migraines are weird, brutal beasts! And they're confusing and scary the first time they happen and you don't know what is going on. So I was really glad that they figured it out, and I hope it didn't last too long - I can't imagine a whole day of filming with a migraine that was lingering. And here's hoping it was a one-off and Link doesn't get hit with another any time soon, because they're miserable.

Annabel Forster on February 18, 2022 at 8:40 am

I've had exactly the same thing that Link describes. It's called a retinal migraine. Super scary when it first happens!

Annabel Forster on February 18, 2022 at 8:48 am

Whoooops, turns out retinal and ocular migraines are the same thing 😅

Lindsay Smith on February 17, 2022 at 9:53 pm

Hey Link, if you haven’t already, try a deep tissue massage. They help me manage my migraines and the general tightness of my body. Enjoy!

Sofia Solferino on February 17, 2022 at 7:35 pm

Ohh, Link, it seems you had what is called a "scintillating scotoma" or "migraine aura". It's basically how a big migraine starts, sometimes. And mostly caused by stress :( I remember the first time it happened to me, years ago, when I was at work and I thought I was having a stroke. They even rushed me to the hospital because the work doctor didn't have a clue as to what it was when I described it. At the hospital I had an MRI brain scan done and of course, nothing. They let me go home but I still had my doubts, so I rushed to the eye doctor and she laughed and explained the whole thing to me. It's happened at least 5 times in the last couple of years and even though I know what to expect now, it can get really scary when I have an episode while on the street! I hope your levels of stress go down soon, though, and these episodes don't become a burden to you.
Lots of love from Argentina.

Holly Wesener on February 18, 2022 at 3:22 am

Gotta love when these guys drop some real deep thoughts. Even with a migraine, Link is asking for no sympathy, and talking about how it's in the past (prompted by Rhett's wise words.) But anyways, I'm interested to see whatever this secret thing is that you were taking about!

Susan Etheridge on February 17, 2022 at 6:40 pm

In Australia 'shit' is still a curse word, but we are just more lax about cursing.

Heather (Lady Cynthiana) on February 18, 2022 at 1:42 am

I've been getting migraine aura, often in both eyes, with and without headaches, for years, so I just wanted to reach out and tell Link he'd be okay when he first started wondering what was wrong and I was so relieved when he figured it out, because I've been through that whole process! I found out what it was by half of the vision in both eyes going blank, thought I might go blind, had a lot of expensive tests done, and was told it was likely just a migraine. "Just" a migraine. I don't wish them on anyone! Thanks for sharing this vulnerable moment. Hope you feel better, Link, and it doesn't happen again, or at least next time it doesn't scare you. :)

Josh Clinton on February 18, 2022 at 12:28 am

I've had the flashy zebra pattern before - an ocular migraine. They suuuuuuck.

Josh Clinton on February 18, 2022 at 12:32 am

Aaaand I'm now to the part where they say it.

MythicalAda (Ada Peters) on February 17, 2022 at 9:20 pm

As an Australian I would like to know what season of Australian survivor you are watching Link? I also agree that it is just as good as the American 🙂

Erica is Lost in the Music on February 17, 2022 at 8:22 pm

OMg, shrimp tails are NAYstee. I agree w Link, it IS akin to trying to eat a mass of fingernails or something. I've never been able to handle it; too tough. Garlic chips sound divine, though!

Oh gosh, the smellability. My hubby is like Link (doesn't smell that) and I can smell it ALL, in excruciating detail. I almost wish I didn't olfact so well. 😂 Guess I should be careful what I wish for. 👀

Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry about the eye thing Link experienced. 🖤 It does sound like an ocular migraine, tho. My son gets those. 🥺

Hahaha I have hypochondriatic tendencies as well. I avoid WebMD like the plague...bc I'll literally talk myself into thinking I HAVE the actual plague. 😂

Awwww. No Fallon! Well, rats. 🥺 These things happen. someday we'll be past this. I sure hope so, anyway. 🤞🏻

Thank y'all for this, it was lovely hear from you like this again, as always. And Rhett, your beard looks exceptionally magnificent today. 🥰

Lauren Doucette on February 17, 2022 at 12:03 pm

CAR BISCUITS, and THE INTRO~ I really hope Rhett learns to love it, because my heart dropped and came back up! :D

Lydia Sharman on February 17, 2022 at 11:34 am

as a migraine haver, that is for sure classified as an (aura) migraine even if it only feels like a headache. which is incredibly lucky honestly. hopefully it didn't get worse, which of course can happen. if my memory serves, link's always talked about headaches and stuff in the past. so it could be a natural progression in symptoms, or stress of course. a lot of migraines present itself as pain in the eyes so that makes sense too
the sunglasses and the finger in the ear is hilarious only because i know sooo well how that feels. ear muffs, sunglasses, & ice pack is my go-to LOL - just some advice if anyones reading :p

Erica is Lost in the Music on February 17, 2022 at 7:04 pm

I haven't even watched yet but CAR BISCUITS. I am DECEASED. 😍🥰

Allison Daugherty on February 17, 2022 at 10:47 am

I was stupid excited over the name change! It's the little things that make me happy, lol.

Also, the hearing and visual sensitivity (also smells and touch in my case) are pretty common migraine symptoms. The aura (or prodrome) phase preceeds the headache. There are also non-visual auras. Wouldn't be a bad idea to check in with the doctor just to make sure everything is okay.

Barron White on February 17, 2022 at 10:40 am


Cate Abel on February 17, 2022 at 6:36 pm

1. Yay, for the new name!
2. Thank you for powering through, Link. Hey, you did it! 🥳
3. We love supportive and honest friendship and communication.

Carla Smith on February 17, 2022 at 10:34 am

I am dying at Link in Rhett's sunglasses and his finger on his ear. Poor thing but it is hilarious!

Amanda Marie Porter on February 17, 2022 at 10:33 am

What a cute new chapter. Welcome to Car Biscuits. <3

Nicholas A Lujan on February 17, 2022 at 6:26 pm

I feel for Link, I know what is like to feel like something is wrong with you even if it's nothing

Rachael Gwizdak on February 17, 2022 at 6:21 pm

So sad we don't get to see them on Fallon! I just recently binged all of the Fallon episodes and then saw the previous Car Biscuits and was so stoked!

Maria Attree on February 17, 2022 at 6:16 pm

migraine with aura. my son had this but lost his sight in one eye for an hour or so before the headache began. x

Teresanne on February 17, 2022 at 10:07 am

Y'all! Thank you! My heart did a little dance when Rhett said it!!! Love this!

Jake Magness on February 17, 2022 at 6:03 pm

Finally committed to Car biscuits, huh?

Atlas Trimble on February 17, 2022 at 6:00 pm

just reading the title, I say 'Yes'
