    Basilar migraines

    Hi, I had my very first migraine earlier this month. Thankfully, itís pretty much gone, but it lasted about three weeks, with the first ten days being the absolute worst! Iím seeing my neurologist tomorrow, and Iím thinking about talking to her about basilar migraine. From what Iíve read, it sounds to me like that might have been what I experienced, but I would like to hear from someone who has had one.

    My headache had the typical markers of a migraine, like the right side headache, visual disturbances and nausea, but as it progressed I also had numbness in my hands and lips, memory loss (I would forget what I was saying/doing or what other people had told me), aphasia (I was having trouble speaking and at one point couldnít form the letters to write my name, and I felt very impaired and faint like I was going to pass out at times.

    I was treated with Imitrex, maxalt, Frova, and Depakote. None of them seemed to do anything.

    Has anyone had a basilar migraine? Does this sound like what it is? If not, is it par for the course for Migraine? My mom always had them, but her migraines didnít involve any aura, outside of visual disturbances.
