Does anyone here suffer from menstrual migraine, particularly with vertigo/dizziness? For the past few months, it seems about every two weeks - usually the week before and the week during my period - I get near constant dizziness. Sometime I'll get a one-sided headache, but not always. I usually often see tiny pinpoints of light now and then too - though they're not always associated with the vertigo or the headache.
I just saw a neuro who thinks I have an inner ear imbalance, but VNG testing was negative. I am awaiting an MRI next week, which I am very nervous about.
I have read about menstrual migraines and I am wondering if that's what I have. Does anyone have anything similar? Dizziness that comes almost a full week before the period, lasts through the period and is almost constant every day during that time? I'm not totally sure it's menstrual related, but looking back over the last few months it seems to be - I have 2 good weeks at a time followed by 2 bad weeks at a time, and usually the bad weeks are around my period.
BTW: I am currently breastfeeding - I am weaning off of that, though this started at about 8 months post-partum and I wasn't weaning at the time.
Thanks for any input.
