Hi... I've suffered with migraines for 15 years and have come to learn my triggers; menstrual, stress, lack of sleep, sunlight etc. For years I couldn't find a pain killer and was forced to resort to my bed in darkness and stay there. Then I discovered Syndol which is available at the chemist and is the only drug that helps. If I catch the migraine early enough syndol will rid it, alternatively, if it's a bad one (usually my menstrual ones are the worse) Syndol will take the edge off and avoid a full blown attack.
That said, for over 3 weeks now I've had a migraine constantly. It's like a vice on my temples and a dull pressure ache in the centre of my forehead and around the back of my head and down my neck. Very sensitive to light and noise with nausea. This is a typical migraine for me, but for the past 3 eeeks I have been suffering major dizziness where the room spins and I have to wait until it stops. When I lie down I have to be propped up as lying too low causes the spinning again.
I had put all this down to hormones, as I am nearly 46 years old I figured it might be pre-menopausal? Until someone said my symptoms are more like vertigo! ... I am seeing my GP tomorrow but wondered if any of you had suffered the same and what advice you might have. I am not hopeful that I will be given some miracle cure tomorrow and I fly on holiday in two weeks and need help!!
