For those who don't know me, I have chronic migraines as well as small fiber neuropathy. We have yet to determine the underlying cause.
Here's what I need advice on: When my migraines get severe (usually 2-3 times a week - they've been decreasing in frequency!) I feel dizzy/lightheaded when standing from sitting or if I move too quickly. Typically it lasts no more than a couple minutes. When I am fatigued, I feel foggy and my legs get this wave like feeling running through them even though they aren't moving at all.
Now the last couple of days I'm feeling foggy more often than not. My head feels like I'm spinning on a merry-go-round. My while body has the wavelike motion running through it. I have moments of clarity where everything feels 100% normal. My head doesn't hurt at any point of this. If just feels really off. Typically when the numbness takes over my body or I have a severe migraine I take my caffeine, aspirin, Tylenol combo or Toradol if that does nothing.
Could it be the amitriptyline? Are my migraines presenting differently? Am I exhausted even though I feel like I have energy? What would you recommend I do to limit or get rid of the spinning and wavelike feeling? I do not feel nauseous with it at all.
Any and all advice is welcomed and appreciated. Especially if you read this far! Thank you in advance :)
