Basilar Migraines AKA Bickerstaff syndrome

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

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
Basilar-type migraine
Bickerstaff's syndrome
Brainstem migraine
Vertebrobasilar migraine

Symptoms differ for everyone, but some are typical:

Nausea
Vomiting
Sensitivity to light and sound
Cold hands or feet
Dizziness
Double vision or graying of vision
Slurred speech or trouble speaking
Temporary blindness
Loss of balance
Confusion
Trouble hearing
Body tingling
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

Why..

For once I just want things to not be so hard.. Everyone says God only gives us what we can handle.. I think I have handled enough. I need to see the light at the end of the tunnel.. life for me had always been one step ahead and six back.

You are never more then a thought away..

I love the changing of the leaves and how they look so pretty, yet it also reminds me of you. You are always on my mind but at this time of year you seem to be on my mind more.
Always know I love you and miss you more then words can say..

Why??

Why is it everyone gets along when we have money and when we don't there's stress tension​ , things said ,we treat each other different , I just don't get it. Why is it money has to be the all mighty ruler.
I see a guy in the store he is digging change out to pay for stuff and people treat him different. Yes you have to wait while he counts his change but it's money, no it's not bills it's change.. so you had to wait few minutes longer in line. I just noticed the casheir treated him different them the next person in line why he's still paying ?? Just my question of the day!!
