Seizures or Basilar Migraine

I am a heathly 28 yr old mother of 2. 4 months ago I began having unusual symptoms. It starts with a bad taste in the roof of my mouth, the left side of my face gets hot or cold. I have painful pressure in my left temple. My eyelids flutter and my head rocks back and forth rymthmically. I have stinging pain in my head along with pounding pressure. My speech is slurred and at times I cannot make the words in my head come out. This happens 1 to 11 times a day. A few days I have not had any problems, but most days suck. I have seen 2 neurologist. The 1st one was not for me. He diagnosised me with multiple things before finally deciding to stay with Basilar type migraines(complicated migraines) My new neurologist is baffled by my eeg. He said I have 6 second bilateral spikes and he is unsure what the problem may be. My MRI and Catscan are fine. I have taken topamax, which was no help. I am currently taking 400mg of Zonisamide and it is not helping yet. Does anyone have any suggestions???
