Ever since my son's diagnosis with diabetes, the Easter holiday has been a tough one for me. It's not so much the holiday itself, but it's the preparation that gets me - specifically shopping for the goodies that go in the Easter baskets. I know the tricks (which are akin to surviving most holidays laden with treats , like Halloween or Christmas) where I should buy small presents instead of candy or focus more on the family or friend get-togethers than the goodies. But I still cling to tradition and want to put some sweets into the baskets. So, there I found myself, standing in the eight-foot tall seasonal candy aisles at my local Target, surrounded by thousands of solid chocolate bunnies, gooey Cadbury eggs, a rainbow riot of all types of Peeps, jellybeans, robins eggs, pastel M&Ms and orange Reese's pieces in carrot shaped bags. I wanted to sample everything, and I knew my kids would too. This thought set off a longing in me for the carefree days before the Type...
After an attack, the next day I feel like I have a hang over which has turned into extreme dizziness. Five days after the attack and I am still dizzy. Sitting or standing it does not make a difference. Is this normal? I have been dealing with Migraines for over 20 years, but have never had this happen before for this long. I was told that I suffer from cluster Migraines. I have tried almost every medicine, nothing really is extremely effective for me. momofgoose.
Having a Migraine "hangover" for about 24 hours isn't unusual. It's called the postdrome phase of the Migraine attack. You can read more about it in Anatomy of a Migraine .
No, it's not "normal" for postdrome to last five days. Nor is extreme dizziness something we usually see. You need to discuss this with your doctor. Any time your symptoms vary from your usual ones or are extreme, you should check with your doctor.

Well I guess my problem is that I have constant non-stopping headaches. I've had them for a while now but these past few weeks, they've been really bad. Sometimes, when i get up too fast during one of those headaches (which frankly is all of the time now) i get really dizzy and my vision gets spotty but only for a matter of seconds. Also lately, i've been feeling tired all the time even though i sleep early and at an healthy hour. And also, sometimes when i move my head, it feels like my brain is moving inside and it hurts a lot. These headaches sometimes wake me up at night and other times keep me from sleeping. I've been to a doctor and had an MRI scan but i'm still waiting for the results please help because i'm really worried. Thank you, Farida!
There are many possible causes for your symptoms. They could be from Migraine, another headache disorder, or something else...
