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...
Light-headedness - dizzy; Loss of balance; Vertigo
If you tend to get light-headed when you stand up:
Avoid sudden changes in posture.
Get up from a lying position slowly, and stay seated for a few moments before standing.
When standing, make sure you have something to hold on to.
If you have vertigo, the following tips can help prevent your symptoms from becoming worse:
Keep still and rest when symptoms occur.
Avoid sudden movements or position changes.
Slowly increase activity.
You may need a cane or other help walking when you have a loss of balance during a vertigo attack.
Avoid bright lights, TV, and reading during a vertigo attacks, because they may make symptoms worse.
Avoid activities such as driving, operating heavy machinery, and climbing until 1 week after your symptoms disappear. A sudden dizzy spell during these activities can be dangerous.

What do you think is the cause of waking up each morning with a migraine on my right side? I sleep on either side with one leg straight and one knee up (taught to me by a doctor).
An Eye Physician and Surgeon is suggesting I go to a sleep clinic because my husband says I snore softly but do not wake up.
Thank you for your insights. Nancy .
A sleep study isn't a bad idea. Snoring might indicate sleep apnea.
When people wake with a Migraine, sleep issues are the most common trigger. It can be too much sleep, too little sleep, interrupted sleep, an irregular sleep schedule, or poor quality sleep. Take a look at our video Migraines, Headaches, and Sleep . It's recommended that Migraineurs go to bed and get up at the same time every day, including weekends and holidays.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
