I've had constant migraines and headaches for 6 years and doctors don't know why but lately when I get a migraine I get realy bad chest pain too?

See a doctor: If you have chest pain along with a headache, especially if it's new, you should definitely get checked out. Do you have high blood pressure? What's your BP when you have these symptoms? You need a good physical exam, some blood tests, and an ecg. You may need a ct scan (head) and possibly one of the chest, if this is an arterial dissection. Stop smoking, if you do smoke. Update me! ...Read more

At work, typing, had visual migraine, no headache pain. Then in 10 min, had right sided chest pain, profuse sweating and bout of diarrhea. What is it?

Complex migraine: This sounds like a complicated, vascular, migraine without the classic symptoms but with residual symptoms after it ended. Migraines can affect the activity of other parts of the brain, especially if it spreads. The right-sided chest pain & diarrhea point to phrenic nerve and vagus nerve involvement.

Chest pain I've had a bad migraine for two days and recently started having chest pain. Its been going on for about an hour so I'm pretty sure I'm not having a heart attack or stroke. I'm also only 18. Have tried all my usual migraine medications but they

Chest: Chest pain is very worisome. Although you are at low risk for a heart attack or stroke, these things are possible. More importantly severe conditions such as aneurysms, aortic dissections, pneumonia, etc, can be the cause. Also costochondritis, asthma, and even gastric reflux can be to blame. I suggest if you are still having pain please present to your local urgent care or emergency department. On the other hand, if you are feeling better, you should still find a medical provider to handle your migraines and issues as they come up. Search for for low income community clinics in your area and/or contact your local county hospital for resources.
Best of luck. ...Read more
