I have had migraines for two years. I am only 24 years of age. I am a healthy young lady that played sports in college and tries to eat healthy and exercise regularly. Lately, I have been having these awful abdominal cramps that take my entire stomach region and knot it up almost taking my breath away. Those are followed by diarrhea and EXTREME sleepiness. One day I had to pull off of the road to take a nap in the middle of the day to avoid a wreck. I had no signs of sleepiness before the onset of the attack.
I have been to the gastroenterologist and all blood tests and stool sample came back fine. I have been feeling my muscles and joints grow very tired before an attack but that was only recently. I have had my gallbladder removed two years ago with similar symptoms but no muscle shakiness or weakness.
I do not know if these are linked to my headaches. My head has ached for two years with a dull pain almost every day. I get steroid shots in my nerves below my eyebrows and at the base of my head once every three months.
I get dizzy almost every morning and feel as if I feel carsick quite often. All of these things are there everyday and I am just feeling overwhelmed because I do not know what else to do. I am on meds for intestinal spasms but they are not even sure if that is it. I had an attack tonight and I took my temp. because I was shaky and it was 95.5. I do not know what that could mean. It is never low. It continues even though I am on meds. PLEASE HELP!

You may want to check dysautonomia. My 30 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with this and has symptoms similar to yours.
