Q: Hi! Unique side of "Basilar Migraines". Seizures like, but I can understand and speak some.

Hi! Unique side of "Basilar Migraines". Seizures like, but I can understand and speak some. I get Transported to the hospital, only thing that stops them is a combo of IV meds.  My 2 LAb dogs give me warning in advance. Had these types since 2000.  Is there another ME out here?  I also have, cluster, chronic pain behind lt eye, chronic migraines.  Been at this since 1984 names of migraines might of changed, I've had lot of different test and tried many meds.... and have gone without also. :) A friend found this site, I'm tired again, my adult kids who live with me are also stressed out. Migrianes have run in the family, mom, brother, son(nowhere near like me).

Hi Northstar,


Welcome to the Migraine Community at Health Central. We are glad your friend told you about our site and hope we can provide you with information and support.


That's really helpful to have your dogs give you a warning when these attacks are about to occur. They must be wonderful dogs. It's really important to have an accurate diagnosis of  Basilar-Type Migraine because many times it can mimic other serious conditions. We do have a list of patient recommended Migraine specialists that might be of interest to you. You can find that information HERE.


Sit back and read as much as you can about Migraine, we can't be informed enough. 


Keep us posted,
