    Yes and your Dr should be educating themselves. The list of migraine symptoms for individuals can be long and can vary from attack to attack. The migraine is an enemy who launches new attacks and varies it’s approach so it can catch you off balance and unprepared , but if you know this then it can decrease your anxiety over what might be happening to you. Also some migraine symptoms may be able to be treated individually from migraine itself

    Thanks for answering my question. I love my migraine specialist, but sometimes I don’t know if she quite believes me when discussing symptoms. The Botox injections she gives seem to be helping me.

    Yes! My neurologist said the same thing, it is not typical and had my hearing tested for menieres (I tested negative). I’ve realized that doctors don’t know everything, so when a doctor says something like that to me, now I just log it as information and make decisions for myself. I still believe I have migraine but I try to manage my symptoms based on what I know of myself, what drugs work, which don’t. My ears pretty much ring constantly but it doesn’t mean much.
