Welcome to basilar migraine thread.

In some cases he basilar artery, a blood vessel at the base of the brain, goes into spasm causing a reduced blood supply to parts of the brain. This type of migraine can cause giddiness, double vision, unsteadiness, fainting or even loss of consciousness.

I have experienced basilar artery migraine (BAM), I thought I was suffering from a full blown hemiplegic migraine (which normally affects my left side) but this time as well as "losing" my left side I also had tingling and numbness in my right leg, along with extreme vertigo. When I mentioned this to my consultant (Dr S) he told me that it was a BAM.

I will take this opportunity to highlight that it is extremely important to inform you consultant of any changes in your migraine symptoms; although migraine symptoms can change over a period of time it is essential they are informed so that anything sinister can be ruled out.
