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...
Full Question: I would like to know if stress from loss (bereavement: loss of father) can cause a chronic daily headache or transformed migraine. I did read your answer stating that clinical depression could not cause a migraine, but was a codisease. For 16 full months each day, my 14 year old daughter has had pain mostly on her left temple region that is pounding and made worse sunlight or loud noises. The pain keeps her from activities/school some of the time. She gets black spots or dizziness that affect her vision every 40 minutes or so lasting for a few seconds. Other symptoms include occasional eye pain and dizziness and nausea/vomiting. She has had MRIs, a CT scan, and a lumbar puncture as well as many blood tests. She has been seeing a pediatric neurologist who has prescribed a few triptans as well as 8-10 different preventative medicines. She has also tried biofeedback, acupuncture and limited counseling. I think our pediatric neurologist has used up her...
