    Yesterday we took a quick look at dysautonomia symptoms and the relationship between dysautonomia and migraine. Today we’re going to talk a little about what you can expect, and what you can do, if you have both migraine and a dysautonomia disorder. Your prognosis will vary drastically depending on what type of dysautonomia you have been diagnosed with. As we mentioned yesterday, some types of dysautonomia are progressive, and can shorten your life. Other types are chronic, and never go away completely. Some resolve on their own. Some are severely disabling (limiting your ability to get…

  • Dizziness – Migraine – Could they be Dysautonomia Symptoms?

    James
    2 Jul 2015 | 11:56 am
    If you feel dizzy, weak, or faint when you stand up or get up from lying down, the culprit could be dysautonomia symptoms. And missing the diagnosis could lead to some serious problems. We’ve been talking quite a bit about fainting and migraine lately, and of course dizziness and vertigo are a constant topic. 25-35% of migraine patients experience vertigo, for example. And as we discussed back in April, migraine patients are more likely to faint in general, though fainting during an attack is not common. Could there be another condition – such as dysautonomia – underlying…

That may not sound like an astounding product at first, but it actually generated a huge amount of interest from our readers. Andrea Jones, the founder of Icekap, was kind enough to send me an actual Icekap to try – so here’s a review. Initial Observations Taking my first look at the Icekap, I was impressed with the quality. This is not something that’s been thrown together. The material is soft. There are three…

    26 Jun 2015 | 5:37 pm
    We’ve known for a long time that there is a connection between stroke and migraine. But a new study seems to confirm at least a partial genetic basis for that connection. But there are some surprises. The meta-analyses, published in Neurology earlier this year, compared thousands of cases of migraine along with thousands of cases of stroke and control patients. Their study looked for genetic similarities in the groups with various types of migraine and stroke, especially known genetic characteristics of either disease. As expected, there was significant overlap. Now we’ve…

I have journaled since I was seven years old; the first place was a small pink diary with a kitten on it which was thick enough to have a lock to protect my secrets from my five year old brother!

Many of my friends had come to visit me in the hospital including one who had become a dad for the first time just days earlier. His wife called me on the phone and I could hear the gurgles of their newborn baby through the hospital phone receiver. My work supervisor had come bringing bags of magazines and crossword puzzles and even cried when seeing how weak I was. My dad endured the torture of such a small space and seeing his daughter in pain he couldn't fix. Cards…

I also was taking care of our black & tan Cavalier, Zoe, who got some sort of allergic reaction. As my stamina is low, when I push my body at all, it retaliates and this time it unfortunately kept me from visiting with my sister-in-law when she was in town for a square dance event on Saturday.  She encouraged me through text to get outside and enjoy the beautiful day. And we did. I couldn't resist a photo session. I was so engrossed in doing something I love,…

    25 Jun 2015 | 7:00 pm
    Migraine surgery may be an effective choice for teens who haven't gotten relief from standard treatment, a small study suggests. In the study, researchers at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland reviewed the medical records of 14 patients, with an average age of 16. In teens with migraine who haven't responded well to other treatments, "migraine surgery may offer symptomatic improvement of migraine headache frequency, duration and severity in patients with identifiable anatomical trigger sites," wrote the study's authors.

His tirades laced with the same recurring threat — come downstairs and you will die. There was never any chance of me coming downstairs. I was far more concerned with whether he would come upstairs that night,  These nights were frequent, and he came upstairs about half the time.  When he the sound of…

The migraines would last anywhere from 24 hours to 72 hours.  I had all of the typical symptoms.  I saw spots, blurred vision, numbness, became nauseous, and had to be in a…

    Cutesy diary my hubby bought for me. Do you have a migraine diary? I mean the kind where you record your pain level, food for the day, meds etc., all in an effort to figure out your migraine triggers. Many episodic migraineurs have successfully narrowed down their triggers using this method. After which, they avoid them like the plague to keep their migraines at bay. I’m sure they sneak a little cheat from time to time. But does this method work for chronic migraineurs? What’s your opinion? I’d really like to know because I FINALLY started mine.
