This past month during one of my episodes (for those of you who aren't familiar, acephalgic migraines are migraines without pain but can be just as debilitating, sometimes more so) I was typically and completely unable to respond in a state of total body paralysis, if you will, and my husband began rubbing the back of my neck... within seconds I was able to take in a deep breath and open my eyes, within a minute or so I could start vocalizing, began speaking, and shortly thereafter was able to regain enough coordination to push upward on my neck near the base of my skull so that I could keep myself from going back "under". Essentially, I was giving myself traction. I had to keep doing this until the episode was over or I'd slip back into a conscious oblivion but... after about an hour or so, I was home free. I've been able to "treat" every episode since then this way successfully. I'm excited that I found something but perplexed at the same time. I've had years of chiropractic treatment that have not eleviated classical migraines or acephalgic episodes so I don't get it... Why is this working? Is there something I can do to make it permanent so that I stop having these episodes altogether? Right now, I am not allowed to drive... if I could get rid of these strange migraines, I could get so much of my life back. I'm not on any drugs- my neuro said there was nothing he could do for me if I didn't want to take Topamax. I feel like there's got to be a doctor out there somewhere who knows what this is and can help... but I haven't the faintest clue where to begin if a neurologist isn't it and a chiropractor isn't it... than who is it???
