Lately I have been experiencing a very strange feeling that is very difficult to describe. It's almost like I'm going to pass out or something, but it never happens. I feel very unordinary, almost out of body. Sometimes nausous, but never actually sick.
I've never been anywhere that I could check my blood pressure or anything, b/c it comes without warning and never lasts longer that what seems like a minute or two.I have been having these "spells" for about a year, but not having had one in a couple of months I thought maybe they were gone until yesterday...
I was driving down the road and was overcome with this "strange feeling", I pulled over and just closed my eyes and kind of zoned out until it was gone, and then went on my way like it never happened. Then probably about an hour later I was HIT with a TERRIBLE migraine. Went home and took a Relpax and layed down.
My ? is while I have been suffering with migraines for a few years now and this has never happened. I started having this weird feeling probably about a year ago or less. They have never been linked in any kind of way. Could this be coincidence or are they linked somehow ? I currently take Innopran XL 40mg daily for migraine prevention and Relpax in case of emergency's. I need to visit my DR. I just don't know how to describe this, I'm starting to wonder about Diabetes after reading some syptoms. Anyone have experieced anything like this or have any ideas. Sorry for the length,

Hi there, just wanted to post a reply to your question. I am also new to this forum and I am searching for some answers to some weird sensations that are hard to explain and are linked to severe headaches (migraines) that are daily since Feb.  Just curious when you say you feel zoned, and feel like you are gonna pass you ever feel like a sensory disturbance or a shock-like sensation pass through your body? I know this is weird but just wanting to see if you are feeling maybe what I am feeling.  My symptoms were induced by Wellbutrin (which I took for years no prob) and then a dr...added Effexor 75 mg after I had a surgery because I was complaining of chronic pain-like symptoms.  Go figure. So know I am on Topamax, and my headache is leveling out some what but still comes and goes although not on the intensity level it was, thank goodness.  I also still feel the sensory disturbances and shock-like sensations sometimes and I can only tell you that it is a weird feeling, I can't hardly describe it.  Drs. tell me they have heard of it but don't know what it is and I find that hard to believe since in fine print on med labels you will see that in rare instances some people experience this. So I don't know.  Maybe I will never know. But good luck to you and if I didn't help at least I can say, keep your chin up and keep searching, I am. Ms. T

 Hello, I do have a fear that I may pass out someday. I never have, but it feels as if thats coming. As for the shocking sensations, I have never felt that. I guess the best way to describe my  mental state is just confused momentarily. You did make me start wondering when you mentioned the wellbutrin. I took Zoloft a couple of years ago, but dont anymore. Wonder if this is connected in any way ?

Hi Brad69 and ncollegestudent, Welcome to both of you to Healing Well. It sounds to me as if what you are experiencing Brad is some form of Aura before the migraine attack, but I am not a medic, have you ever talked to your Doctor about this? If not I think you should. Have you seen a Neurologist that specialises in Headache?

Unfortunately most Neurologists often don't know and understand headache/migraine enough in some cases, and it needs someone who specialises in Headache to sort things out.

Just my two-penneth! Take care Ann

Hi! I know exactly what youare talking about! Unless youexperience it, you can't really understand it. I feel like I am in a cloud. It takes me a minute to comprehend what people are saying to me and then to respond to them.
I am actually somewhat grateful for that feeling! It's the first of my aura symptoms and I take something as soon as it starts to come on. Then, I get flashes, followed by numbness on one side of my body. If the medicine kicks in, I sometimes- usually- don't get the severe pain.
I never drive during that part of my migraine because my depth perception and vision is way off. This has kept me at work many times. But, after it's gone,there is always a period of time before the next thing hits.
So, you are not alone!

Hi guys.  New here, just joined while i was looking up pain in right eyeball when breating through my nose and came across this.  I get the same feelings you get on occasion, but it happens after I take a puff of a cigarette in the morning.  Its wierd, i smoke kind of regularly, maybe 10 a day, but its only occasionally that i get that feeling like i'm ALMOST going to pass out, can't walk without holding on to something.  Once i layed on the kitchen floor and got right up and puked in the sink.  I would like to think that its cigarette related but it hasn't happened in a few months and i smoke in the morning every day.  I USED to get migraines but not anymore.
Just my 2 cents.  My doctor is pretty useless.
