Vertigo or motion sickness treatment

I would like to hear your opinion or comments about this: I been feeling really nauseated and dizzy for the past 3 days and is getting worse... I also have been feeling a ghost smell like burned in my nose which is usually a symptom that I have before a migraine attack.. I have felt the vertigo before but is usually after a long episode of migraine... I just want to ask if anyone has an advice on how to treat the vertigo while the migraine decides to explode... I know is crazy but I am wishing the migraine will come already and get it over with... all the prodrome is very uncomfortable... Thank you in advance!

  1. You are so right that many of the symptoms of migraine can be just as if not more challenging to manage than the pain of the attack itself. This is what proves migraine to be the complex neurological condition that it is.
