Hi everyone,

In the past couple of weeks I have been having very odd headaches. I wouldn't consider them migraines, they aren't pounding, or severe, however I feel like I have lost circulation to my brain or something. There is a lot of pressure in my head, and I am consistently dizzy. Nausea comes with the dizziness sometimes. I first noticed it after having looked at my computer screen for a long period of time (however this was nothing abnormal because I frequently have used my computer for long periods of time in the past). In an effort to alleviate the headaches, I have turned down the lighting on both my computer and my cell phone all the way. I am extremely dizzy still. When I make sudden movements I feel as though I may pass out. I also have a lot of neck pain and stiffness. I really hope that someone may be able to offer a little insight. I wont be able to visit a doctor for at least another week and a half, and all that I can think about is brain tumor or something serious going on up there. I have been monitoring my diet as well as my fluid intake so I am pretty confident neither of these are the culprits. Thank you for any help you may have to offer..

This is something I experience too starting two years ago. Although I have had migraine headaches on a regular basis since I was four. I am one of the lucky 5% that does not get a migraine headache with the migraine symptoms. Some people call this a silent migraine. I get dizzy (bodine works well) and I feel lightheaded like a blood rush to my head (even w/o medication taken). This can last an hour to weeks. Currently I am on day 10. Had MRIs catscans EKG etc for the past two years with everything looking normal. Eventually I was diagnosed with basilar type migraines.

One of the many doctors I've seen was a ear doctor. He explained that the theory is that the blood vessels or nerves that cause the migraine may interfere with my inner ear causing the dizziness.

I will be seeing my third neurologist in the past two years next month. He is my original one back in my home town when I was teenager. It is an over three hour drive and I hope he can help me. Past two were duds. I really can't tell you how to medically deal with it other than take bodine for dizziness and compazine for the nausea. By chance when I was a teenager, my neuro noticed that my blood pressure went up when I had a migraine headache. He put me on verapamil as a preventive with good effect. I still take it.
