Welcome. I'm sorry you're having such a tough time. All of the symptoms you have could be a migraine. I have experienced a lot of the symptoms you have described. I concur with Annuk, the best person to diagnose your problem is a neurologist.
I've suffered from really bad migraines for over 10 years and I've been to chiropractors and naturopaths who promise they can fix them. It's a compressed nerve, scoliosis, candida, an allergy to this or that. The truth is that they are all unable to fix the problems for the long term.
I am seeing a naturopath right now who has had the most success of any alternative medicine type that I have seen, but even he is getting frustrated. It's been three months and I can still experience a headache for a whole month given the right circumstances.
Try not to get too frustrated. Many people will tell you they can fix your headaches or will diagnose your headaches. Just because stress triggers your headaches doesn't mean it's a tension headache. Stress triggers my migraines. They may start out as tension headaches but in my case they often end up in a migraine.
Good luck. Let us kno how it goes.
Hi I am new to this forum and I have been told I have Vestibular Migraine. I have been constantly dizzy for the past 6 months. At first I went to a Chiro and was getting adjusted after that didn't work. I went to a Neur. who specializes in balance disorders and I had to do lots of tests.. Including MRI of brain and MRI of inner ear... all came back fine, so that was good but, it still didn't explain why I am feeling like this. I do suffer from regular migraines about 2 a month but, the dizziness I have is constant not just during the mg. The doc had me try Vestibular physical therapy for 10 sessions, I saw no improvement. So my last resort was to get on prec meds. He presc. Pamelor to very slowly get to 30mg in a little over 2 months time. I hate taking anything I had such a bad reaction to Topamax (it gave me gout!) that I really don't want to take anything. So I have not started it yet. I have not seen anyone on here mention this med. so I am just wondering that if anyone has had any relief or could relate to what I am going through. Mine was brought on by using an elevator at my new job. I had this experience one other time after a cruise but, the dizziness went away on it's own after a month. I work on the 4th floor so it sucks I have been trying to just use the stairs for months now but, no improvement. Well I would love to hear from anyone!
