basilar migraine The migraine attack when accompanied by the symptoms like vertigo,dysarthria or diplopia, the migraine is referred to as basilar migraine.
Disease information : Migraine Migraine is a benign condition associated with recurring and/ or neurologic dysfunction usually accompanied by pain free intervals and often provoked by various stimuli. It is more common in females and there is hereditary predisposition towards attacks. Migraine is classified into different subtypes depending on the clinical symptoms. These subtypes are as follows :
  • Classic Migraine : It is a syndrome of headache associated with premonitory symptoms in the form of sensory, motor, or visual symptoms. These symptoms are either hallucinations, scotoma and photophobia. The other common symptoms associated with classic migraine attack are lightheadedness, nausea, vomiting, paraesthesia and scalp tenderness. Common Migraine : It is a more frequent headache type reported by the patients. It is migraine without aura i.e. there is no focal neurological disturbance. It is a benign condition manifested by periodic and recurrent headache of several hours duration. The unilateral headache, family history, nausea or vomiting and sometimes scalp tenderness are considered as diagnostic criteria to differentiate common migraine from the tension headache. Complicated Migraine : It is nothing but a a migraine attack with dramatic focal neurological features which leaves a persisting residual neurologic deficit.

    Headache is only one of the symptoms of a migraine attack. There are almost always other symptoms which may be different in different migraine sufferers. There are two main types of migraine: migraine with aura (classic migraine) and migraine without aura (common migraine).
    Migraine types
    Migraine with Aura (classic migraine)
    Migraine without Aura (common migraine)
    Basilar Migraine
    Basilar migraine is a form of migraine with aura in which the patient suffers brain-stem symptoms such as vertigo, diplopia (double vision), slurred speech, weakness, imbalance, even blindness. It is more common in young people but is not very common.
    Retinal Migraine
    A type of migraine in which the vision in one eye is almost completely abolished. Rarely, permanent blindness results.
    Abdominal Migraine
    Occurs in children with belly pain instead of headache, superimposed on nausea and vomiting. Often confuses their doctors, who understandibly suspect an abdominal process causing these symptoms, not migraine.
    Menstrual Migraines
    A common variant where the migraine attacks occur primarily just prior to or during the menstrual period.

    The main types of migraine in office practice
    Most migraines seen in physicians' offices are migraine without aura (formerly called "common migraine") and migraine with aura (formerly called "classic migraine" by some). Migraine aura without headache is also quite common, and is seen often by ophthalmologists. Neurologists and headache specialists often treat status migrainosus, characterized by a headache phase of over 72 hours. The other migraine types are listed in the left side bar and are fully described in the Headache Classification Committee's classification (1988).

    53. The Facts About Migraine
    2 Migraine with aura (which includes basilar migraine where symptoms such as lossof balance, double vision or fainting can occur, and familial hemiplegic
    You probably know only too well what migraine is, and just how it affects you. However, lets look at the 'mechanics' of the condition first, as it will he important to your management to know exactly what is going on in your body and to recognise stages and symptoms. Migraine is a complex condition with a wide variety of symptoms which show that various metabolic, neurophysiological and biochemical changes take place during an attack. For many, the main feature is the headache but for children the headache may be milder, and it is the gastrointestinal symptoms like stomach ache which tend to be predominant. It is also a disorder which comes and goes, with complete freedom between attacks. CAUSE
    We know by the aura in migraine, flashing lights or pins and needles, that the brain and central nervous system are involved, from the pain in the head that the blood vessels are involved, and from symptoms like nausea and vomiting that the gastrointestinal tract is involved, with most experts in the field believing that the ultimate problem is in the brain. One of the rarer forms of migraine has been found to be caused by an altered gene. The fact that different drugs used in migraine work on different mechanisms in the body suggests there may even be more than one cause.

    Migraine Headaches
    General Definition of Headaches
    The brain itself is insensitive to pain. Headache pain occurs in the following locations:
    • The tissues covering the brain.
    • The attaching structures at the base of the brain.
    • Muscles and blood vessels around the scalp, face, and neck.
    Headache is generally categorized as primary or secondary.
    Primary Headache. A headache is considered primary when a disease or other medical condition does not cause it.
    • Tension headache is the most common primary headache and accounts for 90% of all headaches.
    • Vascular headaches are the second most frequently occurring primary headaches. Such headaches are caused by blood vessel abnormalities and constitute about 8% of all headaches. Migraine has been considered the most common vascular headache since the 17 th century. In the past few decades, however, evidence has strongly suggested that it is a much more complex brain disorder, which involves a complicated interaction of nerve cells and blood vessel dilation.
    Secondary Headache.

    Classical migraine (with aura)
    It is the same topic as the common migraine except that the patient suffers not only from his headache but also from his aura. An aura is a sensation that usually appears before the pain develops. It may be visual which is the most common (like a flickering light perhaps), or a tickling or numb sensation in one hand or vertigo or mental disturbance which can go as far as ecstatic hallucinations, as it happened to Hildegard of Bingen Most interestingly the aura can prevail even without headache. In this case the patient feels only transient neurological or psychic symptoms which makes it difficult to distinguish them from epileptic or transient ischemic attacks. Whereas there are different theories about the development of a migraine attack it seems that deficient symptoms are caused by a momentarily impaired blood perfusion of certain brain areas. In rare cases even strokes can occur.
    The careful interview gives you good hints that you are dealing with a classical migraine but because of the aura you cannot be too sure. To differentiate from other diseases going along with auras you would like to perform some technical examinations. Technical diagnostics The EEG shows the same items as it does the common migraine, namely frequently increased photosynchronisation also for slow frequencies and quite often intermitting temporal foci. Sometimes these are similar or even identical to epileptic changes. In these patients there is a good chance for a cure with anticonvulsives. A transcranial doppler examination allows you to rule out a symptomatic angioma with major blood steal mechanism. In migraine with visual aura you might find changes in the visual evoked potentials, likewise in cases with disturbances of equilibrium (as in basilar migraine) in the acoustic evoked potentials. Both seem to be symptomatic for ischemic functional disorders in the respective cerebral resp. pontocerebellar areas. Morphologic changes such as tumors or angiodysplastic malformations can be ruled out by CT or MRI. The latter shows quite often small ischemic lesions in the white matter of the cerebral hemispheres.

    59. The Ridgeway Surgery; Dizzy Attack
    The headache is throbbing and is of a migrainous type. This syndrome is calledbasilar migraine and responds to conventional migraine treatment.
    Doctor I feel dizzy
    Dizziness is a difficult symptom. It is a term used by patients to describe a feeling alien to them for which they cannot find a more exact description. The doctors first job is to clarify what the patient means by dizziness. Have a look through these questions.
    Do you feel as if you are spinning?
    Most patients with a true vertigo immediately recognise this is what they mean. However, some patients may need clarification - for example comparing the feeling to getting off a roundabout or merry-go-round, or if you stop suddenly after spinning round and round. If this is the sensation is it continuous or intermittent?
    Intermittent vertigo:
    • Is it associated with nausea and vomiting? Do any activities make it worse? Is there any relationship to movement. Do you have any problems with your hearing? Do you get a headache after the dizziness?
    Patients with a clear history of positionally related vertigo almost always have benign positional vertigo. The vertigo is brief (less than one minute), triggered by movement, reduces with repeated movement and is usually associated with nausea or, if severe, occasionally vomiting. In some patients this syndrome can follow head injury. Examination is normal with the exception of Hallpike's manoeuvre (see below). This syndrome is usually easily recognisable and your doctor can make a confident diagnosis on clinical findings alone. If a patient has had previous attacks of vertigo, has associated ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and one-sided deafness a diagnosis of Meniere's disease is suggested. This is however rare and requires more formal assessment. An audiogram hearing test will show a characteristic loss of high tone hearing. This diagnosis is made with less certainty and there is no specific diagnostic test. This is an overdiagnosed condition.

    60. Migraine And Vertigo
    Less common types of migraine include basilar migraine. Symptoms include vertigo,tinnitus, decreased hearing, and ataxia (loss of coordination).
    Migraine and Vertigo
    Migraine is a disorder usually associated with headache. Although it can affect the whole head, it usually occurs on one side only. It is characterized by throbbing and associated with symptoms that may include nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. Flashes or patterns before the eyes may precede the headache. Symptoms may also include vertigo and imbalance. Migraine can be associated with benign recurrent vertigo of adults (not to be confused with BPPV), paroxysmal vertigo of childhood, motion sickness, and other vestibular disturbances. Stress, anxiety, hypoglycemia, fluctuating estrogen, certain foods, smoking and other factors can trigger migraine. Physicians treat vertigo and imbalance from migraine by reducing these risk factors. Treatment may also involve medications.
    Migraine is an extremely common disorder. Studies suggest that more than 20 million people in the U.S. suffer from migraine. Women are four times as likely as men to experience migraine, which can recur at intervals ranging from one day to several years. Studies indicate that about 25 percent of migraine sufferers experience dizziness during the attacks.
    Migraine classifications
    Migraine disorders are usually divided into several types including common, classic, migraine equivalent, and complicated migraine. However, the International Headache Society (IHS) recently developed a new classification system.
