Hi everyone. I am new to this board and have some questions about an episode I am having. I have had ocular migraines (no pain) for the past 17 years. Rare, maybe a couple of times a year. They have been typical 20-30 minute ocular migraines, usually without any headache, except mild soreness occasionally. Ten days ago (Oct.16), I had an ocular migraine episode, followed by another episode just two hours later (never had more than one before). Felt mildly nauseous and sore until the next day. Than the following day (Oct.18), as the weather front was moving in and the clouds were kinda on top of us, I got sudden tinnitus that lasted about three hours. It went away and was followed by extreme nausea and extreme anxiety/panic. I never developed a headache, except mild pain on top right side of my head on and off. Well, 10 days later I am still nauseous – it feels like anything I eat just sits in my upper stomach. The only other symptom is episodes of extreme sleepiness, that hit me out of nowhere, about every other day during the past ten days. I’ve also had some mild feeling of my balance being just slightly “off”, no vertigo, just a mild feeling of kinda “floating” around (not sure how else to describe it :-).
Have an appointment with a neurologist next week. In the meantime, does this sound like a prolonged migraine episode or prolonged postdrome, even though there is no real headache? Does anyone else experience these bouts of sudden extreme sleepiness during the day, even after getting enough sleep during the night? Thank you so much!
