So to clarify a little what happened to me today..
Bickerstaff syndrome..... you all ask what the hell is that well it's a form of a migraine ..
Basilar migraines are headaches that start in the lower part of the brain, called the brainstem. They cause symptoms such as dizziness, double vision, and lack of coordination. These changes, called an aura, can happen about 10 minutes to 45 minutes before your head hurts. The headache pain of a basilar migraine often starts on one side of the head and then gradually spreads and gets stronger.
This type of migraine can last anywhere from 4 to 72 hours. And it takes time to recover from one. You may feel drained for up to 24 hours after it’s over.
Basilar migraines are known by several different names:
Basilar artery migraine
Symptoms differ for everyone, but some are typical:
Sensitivity to light and sound
Cold hands or feet
Double vision or graying of vision
Slurred speech or trouble speaking
Loss of balance
Loss of consciousness
When the headache starts, you might feel an intense throbbing or pulsating pain on one or both sides of your head or sometimes at the back of your head.
Since I was 14 years old I have had migraines and over the years they have been getting worse. Today at work was one of the worst I ever had , loosing my balance, unaware of things going on around me and my speech being slurred are a few things. This form of migraines scarred me. .
Wednesday I found out I am allergic to nuts and cimminom and I am being tested for wheat and foods. Like this getting old really does suck
