What Life?

Six weeks ago, I got up to go to work and the room was spinning and was very dizzy. Since that day, I have had constant migraine left eye with dizziness, nausea, blurry vision, and neck pain. I went to the urgent care two weeks after dealing with this for two weeks, they said it seemed to be sinus (no symptoms of sinus issues) and gave me meds. Went to ER 4 weeks with severe headache, they gave me a shot and medicine through my IV. While I was there they completed a scan of my brain. Everything was okay, with an exception of frontal lobe mild atrophy, out of proportion. I have a neuro. apt in a few weeks, but everyday I have this migraine with dizziness and nausea. Is it common to have a headache everyday? I have an ENT appt. next week and family doctor appt. too.

I’m 51 and work as a chief of staff, volunteer making chemo blankets for cancer patients, and energetic, prior to this migraine. I do take thyroid medicine, and within the last month forgot to take my meds about 8 days out of the 30, not sure if this would cause a migraine. I can’t focus, and have taken 9 sick days within the last 6 weeks. I go to bed at 5:00 and is taking a toll on my family and job. Can anyone tell me if this will get better? Any suggestions? I do not have a life!
