Can napping on my right side help migraines go away?

Can napping on my right side help migraines go away?

Maybe: This is not a standard treatment for migrainous type headaches, but there is no reason not to try it. Each person typically has a basic migraine pattern. Migraines should resolve on their own at some point and the simple act of sleeping in a comfortable position may bring about a quicker resolution. It is helpful to be aggressive with treatment as soon as you notice a migraine is coming on. ...Read more

See a neurologist: There are many types of headaches and many reasons for each type. You should speak to your primary care physician who can refer you to a neurologist. It would be helpful for you to keep a "headache calendar" by noting down the timing, frequency, duration, and intensity of your headaches. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/headache.html ...Read more

Is alice in wonderland syndrome (visual distortions before falling asleep) usually considered an atypical migraine or tle? Or is the cause unknown?

How often?: I'd expect migraines to be less frequent than seizures and seizures probably would be more likely as you drift off to sleep. Does this bother you enough to take another medication everyday? ...Read more

I take100mg topamax (topiramate) for migraine with 200mg seroquel topamax (topiramate) cuts my appetite when waking up i can't fall asleep easier should I take topamax (topiramate) earlier?

I take100mg topamax (topiramate) for migraine with 200mg seroquel topamax (topiramate) cuts my appetite when waking up i can't fall asleep easier should I take topamax (topiramate) earlier?

Depends : If topamax (topiramate) is keeping you awake, it certainly can be taken earlier. If your are on seroquel xr, you should take it earlier ( by 3-4hours) so it peaks and makes you sleepy at bedtime. If it is regular release, take it 1/2 to 1 hour before bedtime. If you are driving in the evening you should not take your medications until you are ready for bed. If this does not help, consider melatonin. ...Read more

Seeing flashing lights/lines/spots, things moving when they're really not, etc. When trying to fall asleep. Silent migraine? My meds? Sleep disorder?

Seeing flashing lights/lines/spots, things moving when they're really not, etc. When trying to fall asleep. Silent migraine? My meds? Sleep disorder?

Maybe both: "weird" neurological symptoms can be related to migraine, which is a benign cause; however, sleep issues can provoke migraines. Also hypnagognic hallucinations (google it) are normal whenever falling asleep. Hypnagognic hallucinations are reported by users of Amitriptyline in the medical literature. ...Read more

Causes of bowel movement, vomiting while totally asleep, fatigue, dizziness, loss of balance, numbness, tingling, migraine, eye pain/pressure,insomnia?

Causes of bowel movement, vomiting while totally asleep, fatigue, dizziness, loss of balance, numbness, tingling, migraine, eye pain/pressure,insomnia?

Most important thing: Bowel (and likely bladder incontinence) & emesis during sleep is concerning. I think this needs to be looked at immediately. The most important thing to rule out is some type of nocturnal epileptic condition. Other symptoms you mention are consistent with what people can feel following an episode (post ictal phase). I recommend you get an ASAP appt. with neurology. Start documenting things. ...Read more
