I am in dire need of a correct diagnosis.... my husband began having severe migraines in May and has had numerous tests done to rule out major illnesses, to include blood work from 5 labs, MRI, MRA, angiogram, and an ENG. He has visited internal medicine doctors, neurologists and ENT's. He has been prescibed Vicodin to ease the pain of the migraine when they come, but of course that only helps for the duration of the medication. Having said all that, we wonder if there is something gastrointenstinal going on. Each and every one of his migraines includes gas. He belches and has flatuence like crazy during his "episodes". Every doctor we mention this to sort of brushes it under the rug. This is disturbing to us because we feel it could be the cause of the migraines. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?
