I am new at this and scared and need some help. Last monday night and Tuesday morning I had these episodes (don't know what to call them) like siezures. Basically, I would get this stare(so my hubby says) and a pain behind my eyes and on the top of my head, then my eyes would roll back in my head and I would shake and stutter. I knew the words I wanted to say but could not get them out. Then after 3-5 minutes I would be normal. My hubby ( who's a firefighter) says they were TIA''s, like a stroke, so we went to the emergency room (okay, I made him go to the urgent care first, that doctor agreed with him and said TIA and sent me to the hospital. After a CT scan, MRI, EKG, also anti-siezure meds they said everything was clear and sent me to the neurologist the next morning. He simply said, they are migranes, probably from lack of estrogen take these Topamax and Maxalt and see me in 6 weeks, stay away from onions and a couple other things and don't drive for a week. I asked him if I should maybe get estrogen and he said you don't want that. Not satisfied with his answers after searching the web and finding out more about migranes I made an appointment to see another Neurologist next week. I have had many more since then and have been really sick (throwing up) because of the meds. I sorry this is long. But here's my questions:
Does this sound like a migrane? If so what kind?
also, What test if any should be done?
What should I ask the new Neuro?
Should I see a migraine specialist?
Thank you so much in advance. I am really scared, because I don't have any information
