I am a 48 year old female. I have a history of classical migraines. I have been experiencing episodes where I get a sudden onset of a severe throbbing headache, severe nausea, mental confusion, hearing loss, stuffy nose and watery eyes, right-sided weakness, cold feet and hands, and visual disturbances. I have had many tests-brain MRI, total blood workup, medication changes. I have seen my Family Physician, ENT, and Neurologist. I had full scale Audiology tests that determined symptoms were caused by central nervous system not ears. My neurologist has diagnosed Atypical migraines. My questions are: Can this type of migraine cause brain damage? Is there any known medication that possibly gives relief to these headaches? I was prescribed Migranal. It takes the pounding headache away but that is all. How do audiology tests determine central nervous problems when a migraine was not present at time of testing? If a physician or anyone in the forum might have information, it would be a great help. I have researched and cannot find answers. Information will also help when I see my Neurologist again.
