    At your next appointment you make sure you tell them it is not caused by anxiety, but, that anxiety is caused by the conditon,which is physical!! This makes me so mad when they fob people,off with this ignorance!!

    I suddenly had a horrible attack out of the blue at the beginning of this year, it started with dreadful night sweats & night terrors (which made me think it was hormonal but doctor dismissed as am "only" 44), then following day could not stand or walk as so dizzy, could not move head from left to right, couldn't stand bright light, felt INCREDIBLY sick and felt extremely panicked - "out of control" which is totallyh not me.  Was taken to A&E fear meningitis, had tests inc MRI.  Put on a drip for 24 hrs to rehydrate & strong antibiotics.  Neurologist concluded mother of all migraines, possible cause viral infection / bacterial infection / stress (or combination thereof).  Had two further attacks the following next two months, now been prescribed Prochlorperazine.  I take 5mg when I feel an attack coming on, building up to (and no more than) 30mg in 24 hrs.  So far so good - has prevented attack from developing.  Wishing you well! xx
