Angry vertigo.. migraines?? Well that's what they tell me

I get 'migraines' every 14-16 weeks. Instead of a headache I get dizzy and nauseous .. throw up for a day. I am completely unable to care for myself or move for a day. The following day I am weak but can take food. The older I get (I started this fun cycle at age 6 and am now almost 46) the longer I feel terrible. The good news is that I feel great otherwise, but when I'm sick it's awful. I have had cat scans, mri's, many different and strange drugs to no avail. I have been told I have basil vasicular migraines but treatment doesn't work. I am grasping at straws. I travel for work and it scares the hell out of me that I'll be in some 3rd world country when these hit. I'm looking forward to menopause... but not sure that will help. Anyone have similar situation? Any advice?

Re: vertigo.. migraines?? Well that's what they tell me

Hi Didadi, so sorry to hear you've been suffering for so long. I'm afraid i cant really suggest anything although i've certainly had the migraine diagnosis in the past.

Seeing you mention the menopause i wanted to say that i'm a lot worse during the week leading up to and during menstruation, and i'm sure that although my basic problem is most likely my spine, pelvis and neck, i believe that hormones worsen the dizziness and ear symptoms. There is also reports in the news just now about studies showing just how common it is for symptoms of many illnesses and disorders to abate or disappear duriing pregnancy - hormones have so much to account for.
