Are these migraines?

I haven’t been diagnosed with migraines. A doctor said that I ha e GERD(digestive issues) but most of the time It is accomplishing qniee by a very bad headache with nausea that lasts for days. Pain in lower part of head to n left side.

Last night the nausea got very bad and I was in a cold sweat. Blood tests all good, CT scan okay too. Are these migraines??

    Hi robinL,

    Thank you for your question. I’m sorry you are having a rough time with nausea. I know how frustrating that can be.

    I wish I could tell you exactly what’s going on, but only a qualified doctor can do that. Migraine disease is considered a diagnosis of exclusion, meaning there is no blood test or image study to confirm it. An accurate diagnosis is achieved after the doctor gives you an exam, goes over your symptoms and discusses you and your family’s medical history.

    If you haven’t had a chance to discuss this with your doctor, I would encourage you to at the next visit.

    Best of luck
    Nancy

    I have been to several doctors, had a CT scan and numerous blood tests and they have ruled out many things. I will have an endoscopy soon to see about Gerd. Migraines seem to fit the symptoms, so I am trying to get some feedback from others to see if anyone else has experienced what I am going through. My headache and nausea eases up, but never seems to go completely away. Then suddenly it’s gone only to recur again at some point. Sounds a lot like what I’ve been reading here.
