You're doing the right thing by going to a neurologist. I suffered migraines for years, just the visual effects. Migraines run in my family. I later developed seizures, unrelated to the migraine activity, I believe, but one thing my neurologist did say that migraines and seizures can be closely related.

Along those lines, after being medicated for the seizures, the migraines went away. You mentioned speech, something my seizures effected with me. I had brief periods of aphasia, weird, I'd be half way through a sentence and just stop talking, I'd be standing there with a stupid look on my face, not sure what happened.

I'm not suggesting you have seizures, but I am acknowledging that I've experienced issues with speech and can identify with what you're saying. Now that I'm medicated, I usually don't have trouble unless I get breakthrough symptoms. I was teaching a class at work and began having breakthrough symptoms, I was putting the wrong words together while trying to speak. It didn't last long but it is embarrassing in front of a lot of people.

Here is a link to reporters that experienced migraine related speech difficulties while on the air. As you can see, migraines can do much more than most people realize.

These are the type of migraines I had sometimes several times a week. Ocular (Visual).

I'm curious, what do you mean by 3D effects?

Here's another migraine variant that effects perception.

Just hang in there, the world of migraines can be much stranger and more varied than most people realize.

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask questions.

What you said about what happens with your speech happens exactly to me I have had bad dizziness and feeling like the room is spinning the effects of the it's like I have the stuff like the really bad stiffness in the neck my eyes will go blurry the 3 d effects is like things are getting bigger and then I just don't see them and walk into them and it's like I get motion sickness I guess is the best way to describe some of my symptoms thank you

Hello again.

There is another type of migraine that bears reference here, it's known as a Basilar Migraine. You can read about it here:

www.webmd.com/migraines-headaches/basilar-artery-migraines-causes-symptoms-tests-and-treatments

Do you have a family history of migraine? Also, my migraines and seizures are sensitive to my sleep cycles. Too little sleep is implicated in triggering migraines, but too much sleep can also be a factor.

Have you identified things that trigger your migraines? Certain foods or drinks, sleep, stress, etc.? Make sure you take a list of medications you use, even over-the-counter medications, vitamins, supplements, herbs, (this is not directed at you but towards any forum visiter, doctors should also know if their patients take illegal medications).
