My head starts to feel very pressured, my ears start ringing, and I get weak and dizzy- is this a migraine?

My head starts to feel very pressured, my ears start ringing, and I get weak and dizzy- is this a migraine?

Maybe: If you have a history of migraines. Yes. This could be migraine. If there is any associated hearing loss... This may be related to dysfunction of your inner ear as well. If you have other neurologic symptoms... Slurred speech/ weakness in your arms or legs... I'd be concerned about stroke. ...Read more

I'm 34 yr old female I had a 12 mm pineal cyst removed 1/21/15 since then I have been migraine free but am still quite fatigued, ringing ears, I am no?

Diagnosis of IIH?: Even though the cyst was removed and your headaches are resolved you still may have elevated pressures sufficient to cause ringing in the ears. Don't know so much of the fatigue because there are a huge number of possibilities for that diagnosis. I find your case fascinating because I have a case right now with a patient terrible headaches, Pineal cyst TWICE yours and surgeons don't want to touch ...Read more

Went to an ENT and they didn't think I had labyrinthitis however I do because I have ringing in my ear & feel like In a dream constantly, migraine?

Vestibular migraine: Vestibular migraine would be a rare cause of tinnitus. There should be an organic basis for the tinnitus. Did the ENT doc give you a diagnosis? Treatment?
If not satisfied with consult, seek a second opinion. This time from an otologist (ENT doc with special training and expertise in ear disorders.) ...Read more

Have headache/migraine tip of tongue is numb and very bad pain in left side ribs/back also feel a ringing in my ears this all started in last 48 hours?

Rather, it should be viewed as an attack that is accompanied by various neurological and non-neurological features as well as headache for 48 to 72 hours. Accompanying symptoms are stiff neck, nausea, vomiting, dizziness and blurred vision and sleep issues. See orofacial pain or headache specialist for evaluation and management. ...Read more

Postdromal migraine or brain tumor? Mild pain on left side of head, ringing ears, ear fullness and dizziness for 4 days after week long migraine.

How about neither?: There seems to be an inexplicable epidemic of brain tumor anxiety among otherwise young healthy people. Like that furshlugginer ice bucket challenge that had the unintended consequence of an epidemic of ALS anxiety among otherwise healthy young people. - This may have been a viral infection that spread to your middle & inner ear. If it persists more than a few more days, see your doctor. ...Read more

How does a vestibular migraine affect the inner ear? And can an vestibular migraine last a month non stop?

How does a vestibular migraine affect the inner ear? And can an vestibular migraine last a month non stop?

Vestibular migraine: Strange condition indeed.

Unusual for it to last for longer than a few days, but certainly could recur, but a month of persistent symptoms is atypical and would wonder about something else.

Nobody really knows for sure how migraines affect the inner ear, but probably in the same way as they cause other neurological symptoms via some change in blood vessels or changes in neuronal activity. ...Read more

I've been getting sharp pains that only last a second under my right ear it comes and goes... But also have a migraine. Wonder if could be related?

Probably not: No, pain under the ear is rarely migraine. The location of your pain, under the ear can be due to parotid gland disease. Pain in the internal pterygoid muscle, (a muscle that helps to close the jaw as in a form of TMD), or inflammation of the tendon of the muscle of the neck that attaches to the mastoid process. ...Read more

What could be causing ear pain, teeth pain, and a migraine?

What could be causing ear pain, teeth pain, and a migraine?

Bite problem: A bad bite. Can cause all of these symptoms as well as tooth grinding or clenching. It is not enough to say they're caused by grinding. The bigger question is, why are you grinding? Any treatment that does not stop the grinding will protect the teeth but not deal with the migraines and other symptoms. Migraines are muscle problems. An orthosis that relaxes muscles is the best solution. ...Read more

Advice: Have you contacted your doctor about this? The focal numbness emerging after several days may represent a non-migraine complication. So, the total picture needs to be addressed. Perhaps find an Urgent Care Center, which would be more economical than an Emergency Room. ...Read more

Had lots of symptoms. Then migraine behind left ear. When over all symptoms disappeared and felt great for two days. Any ideas?

Left. Ear pain: You could have had TMJ (temporal mandibular joint) pain. Have you had recent dental work? Do you chew a lot of gum? Grind your teeth at night? Eat hard candy or a lot of meat? Does the pain get worse when you open and close the mouth? These are the kinds of things I think about if it returns use Ibuprofen 600 to 800 mg three times a day. Feel better. ...Read more

Since the morning of the 30th my left ear has been blocked. Like plugged up I have also had this horrible migraine that goes along with it.?

Vestibular Migraine: Migraine can cause vertigo, ringing in the ears and muffled
hearing. It's likely that if a person is having a bad migraine attack, and notices that hearing is reduced, he or she may be having Otic migraine. If this is so, would expect it to resolve as the headache resolves, in most cases.

If hearing loss is only in one ear and persists beyond the headache it may just be wax blocking the ear. ...Read more

I'm a migraine sufferer and have found great relief from nortriptyline. I recently heard a loud swooshing in my ear for a couple of days. Problem?

No: The carotid artery normally passes though the bone that houses the auditory nerve. When air conduction is temporarily impaired, one hears the internal sound which is soft and usually not audible. A "clogged ear" like after swimming, from a wax impaction, following a cold, or changing altitude can cause this. It's not serious. Lying ear firmly down in bed can temporarily reproduce it. ...Read more

Call your Dr.: If this is the first time, you have ever had a migraine, you should consult your dr or even go to the emergency room. If you do get headaches off and on, consult your pcp or a headache specialist; you might need a headache abortive medication.

If you mention stress or anxiety migraine at the urg care doctors is it common to get lorazapam so readily, think I had ear inf or allergy.
