I had a constant headache for over three months.  Nothing gave me relief.  I started Botox infections four times a year.  I have had great success with this for over six years.  I am having dizzy spells, actually fell.  It is hard for my eyes to work together and focus properly.  I get a nauseous feeling in my head with movement.  But, I do not have severe headache pain.  I know Botox stops the pain, but not the headache.  Is it possible I am having other migraine symptoms even though the actual pain is stopped by the Botox?

    Yes, maybe. You can look into vestibular migraines. People get dizzy without head pain. There is a group on facebook for this, just seach for vestibular migraine.

    Yes, sounds like vestibular migraine to me. Is considered migraine without the headache. Watch your sodium intake and balance with potassium like bananas and sweet potatoes. Also, try vestibular rehab which is a type of physical therapy to retrain your balance. Yoga is also helpful. Ginger is good for the nausea. Add magnesium if you're not taking it already. 

    Feel better and let us know how you're doing.

      Thank you!  I am doing better this week but am taking more of the "anti-vert".  I appreciate the suggestions!

    I get Veritgo & daily Tinnitus. I get very nauseous when it happens, like the room is not firmly stable, not necessarily spinning, but more of the horizon tilting. My ENT doc said it could be from fluid in my inner ear. I take OTC allergy relief and have seen great improvement. Motion sickness meds have helped as well. But I'm not a doctor, but it might be something to ask your doctor.

    On a side note, have you ever had any pain from Botox injections at the base of your skull, top of the neck. I had my 1st series, no pain that day, but 3 days later the neck pain began and is progressing. Just curious if it happened to you and how long it lasted. Thank you and get well soon!
