New to this forum. I started having occipital, “complex” migraines at 19 years old (44 years old now) with visual distortions, hemiparesis, nausea/vomiting, and then head pain. Several years ago, my migraines presented with intermittent aphasia, and now vertigo. I am taking Effexor (recommendation of my neurologist for migraine Aura), and magnesium. I am very bothered by the aphasia, which continues daily, even after the migraine event has dissipated, in addition to transient vertigo. I am researching that this aura is from the brain stem. Does anyone else suffer from such issues, and experience the daily frustration of not being able to “find words”, words “coming out wrong” (which both myself and my family notice), poor recall/memory, as well as intermittent vertigo?
Thank you for your support!
