So in January this year I was diagnosed with vestibular migraines, I woke up one morning dizzy for 24 hrs and from then I've had dizzy spells lasting days to weeks. Crazy vision especially when looking from the corner of my eyes at patterns etc. Dizziness when walking in supermarkets, painful ears, tinnitus, blocked and clicking ears, I sometimes get nose pain ( guessing this is the sinuses ) I see colour flashes all the times during the day , it's not often but it's definitely there all day. I sometimes get cold sensations in my face for a few seconds, and I get aching thigh and sometimes they are painful. The thing is I've just had a baby and found that in my second trimester all of this stopped, and was amazingly gone for the rest of my pregnancy, after the birth I started to noticed the dizzy spells again etc and the colour flashes. And now when going to sleep I wake up and my hands are asleep ( I've been checked for carpel tunnel it's not that ) my questions are is it possible to have these symptoms constantly and it been migraine, I'm currently on propranolol 60mg at the moment, and I do feel a difference in my ears etc because they are the worse symptom I have they pop and click constantly etc and always feel blocked. However I still have small amounts of dizziness during the day, colour flashes, sometimes I get head pain, the cold sensations in my face only started when I started on my medication however it hasn't gone away so I'm guessing it's notfrom that. I'm doing sooo much better then I first was nearly two years ago, but I just get so concerned especially with the waking up with numb hands. Does anyone else experience this as a side effect as migraine or is bizarre to even think that could be related? As I wake up with it and I will do for let's say a few weeks and then it will subside again for a while. I do sleep on my hands a lot and I do realise this can cause blood flow restriction but the thing is when I woke up today I was on my back hands at my sides and my right hand small finger and index finger where numb so I was thinking well I can't of been leaning on them. I've been very stressed lately and have health anxiety badly. ( as I'm sure you can tell ) so please if anyone has vestibular migraines or even any other type can you please tell me your symptoms etc. Any replies I really appreciate and sorry for the long rambling post. Xx
