Feeling lightheaded

  • By Ellen Schnakenberg

    Feeling lightheaded is a common symptom of Migraine. Do you experience lightheadedness as a part of your Migraine attacks? Do you have anything that seems to help you that you could share with other patients?

    I have mild lightheadedness from time to time. 98 percent of the time I have head pressure. I’ve always wondered if this is connected to my migraines. I have done some recent reading on Chiari Malformation, but the cough headache is about the only symptom I have. Next January, I plan to tell my dr. that I’d like to get an MRI.

    I too experience lightheadedness. A few times I have fallen. Thankfully I was okay. Also, like Vicki, I experience head pressure. I have that most of the time. Initially I was diagnosed with Meniere’s disease. Some symptoms are similar.

    I am a migraine suffer since 21 and I am now 41. I often get lightheaded and I have lower blood pressure so I do not know what medications are good for me and neither does my doctor.

    Are you seeing a headache specialist? This is probably one of the first best things you can do to help yourself when there are complicating factors such as low blood pressure. It is possible that you may have a comorbid condition as well. One common comorbidity is thyroid disease.
