I am 27; Female.... good shape, non drinker, non smoker, I eat healthy, get enough sleep... I do everything your "suppose" to.
I know I have been diagnoised with Migraines but this past year so much more has gone on.......
I am extremely fatigued, I have EXTREME nausuea all the time it comes in waves which has made it hard to eat which has caused me to loose around 22 pounds since Jan this year. I get migraines all the time, and even experiance blurry vision. I have NO sex drive AT all. and recently ( about the past 4 months) when I sleep my arms fall asleep so bad & tingle in a painful way even when I am not laying on them? People can not see nauseau when they look at you and I swear people think i am crazy and I am miserable. And this is even weirder, it feels like the base of neck/ bottom of my skull is "sore" and tender all the time, I make my husband massage it and he thinks it is weird b/c it is bone but it hurts!~
I have had blood tests for Diabetes, thyriod conditions, early menopause and luekemia! And all are negative!
Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Hi, have you had a CAT scan or MRI of your head to be sure you don't have something going on inside your head? It sounds like you may have increased intracranial pressure, which can cause nausea, and headaches, and blurred vision.

  • I would go with an MRI just to make sure nothing life threatning is going on. I too had real extreme migraines to where I couldn't even walk. I also have had and still get the base of the skull pain. I have my husband massage it all the time. He says its like massaging a log because I keep telling him to do it harder and he thinks he is going to hurt me. If you are stressed then you can get the headaches, nausea, and blurred vision. At least thats what happens to me. I bought one of those shiatsu massagers and I use it every day. Be easy on the caffene too. You can also get that with anxiety disease. Good luck.

  • If you can get an MRI, see if you can get a CINE MRI to check for a chiari malformation and hydrocephalus.
