Over the last year I've been having some health issues mainly idiopathic autoimmune but I was also diagnosed with Ménière's disease which is an inner ear disorder.
I started having flashes of lights in my eyes which the ophthalmologist said it was ocular migraines but I never had them before. Now, on my right side of my head, I get this burning feeling in a nerve on the back of my scalp (I put ice on it) which makes my right cheek feel numbish in one spot. My eye goes somewhat blurry and I'm very tired and sensitive to light. I also get sharp pain behind my eye if I expose it to too much light; and I get off balance. The top of my neck on that side starts to hurt as well and if I massage it, it feels better. This can last for a week.
I asked my neurologist and she said it's a "vascular migraine" and gave me gabapentin to try. Does anyone else experience this? I feel so alone and I'm getting extremely depressed. Even writing this right now I have my one eye closed.
If anyone wonders, I've had 2 MRIs of brain with and without contrast in the last 6 months (most recent August) and a CT of brain with and without contrast. Also, have had a full MRI of spine with and without contrast. So I don't think it's anything sinister and my neurologist doesn't seem too concerned.
