In brief: Type of migraine

Considered a subtype of migraine with aura, this migraine starts in the basilar artery, which forms at the base of the skull.
It occurs mainly in young people. Symptoms may include vertigo (the room spins), ringing in the ears, slurred speech, unsteadiness, possibly loss of consciousness, and severe headaches.

In brief: Basilar Migraine

Usually arises from the compression of the greater occipital nerve in the back of the neck.
The nerve becomes entrapped in the muscles of the neck. It can be decompressed and for significant pain relief. www.themigrainereliefcenter.com.
