Hi guys and thank you for stopping by. I am posting here for traffic, to increase my chances of someone reading would relate to this.

The symptoms started 6/7 years ago. I get his sick feeling, like my stomach just stops working and tension on the back of my neck and it slowly evolves to a massive headache. I tried different pain killers and the headache doesn't get better, until I vomit. As soon as I vomit, as soon as my stomach is empty again, I get better, immediately, the headache fades away. I have reached to different doctors, had my stomach checked (biopsied even), heart, liver, brain, gallbladder, everything, and nothing was found.

It is not triggered by any specific food, activity, mood, it just happens.
I thought of migraines but the symptoms definitely don't match.

Has anyone experienced it? I have never met someone with the same "condition" or found anything like it online. Am I doomed to live like this for the rest of my life? It happens at least once a week, and it's really affecting my health and life in general. sad

Sounds like a massive tension headache... I used to get those... and btw, not all migraines are the same... symptoms do. Ary

Is it only when you have eaten? There is a condition where your blood pressure changes suddenly when your stomach is full? But it's reassuring that all of those special ists havnt found anything!

Stomach migraine?

IKEA888 Sat 27-Jun-20 23:23:02

gastroparesis maybe

These are exactly my migraine symptoms. I have had them for the past 35 years. Always starting in my left shoulder and neck, leading into the left sided headache. They are diagnosed as migraines because I get aura as well: visual disturbances, numbness in my face, heightened sense of smell, light sensitivity. I’d go back and suggest to your GP that this is what they might be, and seek treatment. There are lots of options now.

Thank you so much for your answers!

I don't need to eat for it to happen, sometimes I wake up in the morning feeling like that.
It could be stomach migraine but I dont have any abdominal pain.
Gastroparesis was dismissed by my doctor but initially it was considered yes, because the stomach really stops (when I vomit the food I had during the day is still "intact" in my stomach, not digested at all)

That is exactly how migraines progress for me. Abdominal migraines don't necessarily have an aura.

My digestion effectively stops during a migraine (so I have to take my meds as soon as I get symptoms). It honestly sounds exactly like mine and those of a couple of friends who follow the same pattern.

I don't get any other symptoms, like aura or light sensitivity, but I will definitely ask my GP to reconsider that, thank you

Thank you, I will look into that too. Thank you all for being so lovely, I will research the tension and stomach migraines and ask my GP to reconsider it.

And I don't always get stomach pain. I just get that horrible nauseated feeling like something is suffocating me. Sometimes I get really foul wind before that happens. Sometimes I can't stop yawning and feel like I could sleep forever, only I can't sleep because of the knots that start writhing in my gut.

Some of my migraines are exactly like that. I thought nausea and vomiting were fairly common symptoms.

Weirdly I get migraine headaches without aura and migraine auras without the headache.

My thought was migraine - nausea, vomiting and neck pain are all symptoms.
