In brief: Wikipedia

This is a relatively rare migraine.
However I am familiar, through family members, with this diagnosis. Since this is a relatively rare diagnosis, the internet will not be very helpful confirming this diagnosis. You will need a physician (neurologist) who has experience with the symptoms to provide you with a reasonable answer. Unfortunately, we're talking about the fringes of medical knowledge.
