silent migraines

Post  anonymous1111 on Sun Jan 11, 2015 9:51 pm

Hi, Im new to this page. Im 23 and have been living with migraines my whole life. Within the last few months, however, Ive been getting new symptoms. My eyes wont focus and I feel very woozy/dizzy/lightheaded. It gets so bad that I sometimes feel like Im going to fall over. This often occurs with no pain at all. Has anyone experienced this? If so how did you combat the dizziness? The triptans dont seem to work for these symptoms.

I experience ocular migraine, along with the lack of focus of the eyes, as well as have had dizziness associated with my Ms.  I used meclizine for the dizziness and it really helped.  You can get it over the counter in the US and it is inexpensive.  Might be worth a try.

Thank you so much for the recommendation! I'll definitely give that a try.

You also might try Benedryl if it doesn't make you too sleepy. It does help with both dizziness and nausea.

Reading food labels can help you become familliar with questonable ingredients, as well as recognize food-label deceptions.

Yes, I also get silent M, just as you describe them. Sometimes I don't get any head pain with it, sometimes I do, but mild one.
The symptoms you mention are, in any case, almost the same like the usual prodrome - a state which precedes the migraine attack.

In my case the silent M developed as I got older, when I was your age I was suffering from very, very painful M which were often connected with pre-menstrual time.
I hope the remedies others suggested will help you.
