Is it normal to have a fast heartbeat when you vomit due to severe migraine?

  • Vomiting is a result of parasympathetic activity so when the parasympathetic drive lets up and becomes somewhat refractive there would be a sympathetic rebound period. Although a more likely drive to an increased heart beat might just be the physical exertion and increased oxygen demands that retching has on the body.

  • Answer:
    Changes in vision and nausea and vomiting are all common symptoms of migraine headaches known as Classic Migraine, or Migraine with Aura. Not all people have migraines with those symptoms, but many people do.

    If you normally get migraines and suddenly have a change where your head pain is accompanied by new symptoms, it is always wise to get it checked out by a physician.


    If your "migraine" is right after a recent head injury and you begin to have symptoms such as blurred vision and vomiting, you need to go to the emergency room, as you may have a closed head injury such as a concussion or bleed to the brain.
  • Answer: Yes; it does. My wife typically gets minor migraine headaches during her period times. With swine-flu, we had to take her to ER by Ambulance as the pain is so severe. The pain was almost 10 times more than her normal migraine (she could not speak because of the pain and was crying and screaming). She was positive for type A flu and further testing revealed she was positive for swine flu. However they could not explain her severe headache and the high blood pressure. Thought it was meningitis and did LP; they also did CT scans, etc. and could not find anything. She went through several CT scans, MRIs, MRVs, several blood tests and cultures, but still they could not find the reason for her severe throbbing/pulsating headache. She was put on high doses of morphine and several medications. She was in the hospital for 10 days.

    Migraine triggers are very individual. It is very possible that just the smell of cinnamon can be a trigger for some people.

    Migraines are not considered a sign of pregnancy, although some women begin to have them due to the hormone changes in the body. In other women, their migraines go away during pregnancy.

    Nausea and vomiting are considered a symptom of migraines. It may be the migraine causing the nausea, rather than pregnancy.
  • Answer: Have your Doctors considered Neuro-Behcets as a diagnosis? It is quite rare and usually is found in Middle Eastern people, along the "old silk Highway", But Americans and English people get it too. I am very white skinned and I have Neuro-Behcets.
    Do you have a history of Oral Canker sores OR Genital Ulcers? (in Females on the inside of the Labia. On Males, on the Scrotum and some times the Penis.)
    Neuro-behcets can cause very, very, severe headaches and Back Aches. Even "Aseptic Meningitis", and Gastro-Intestinal Ulcers.
    And many other skin problems.
    The Neuro-Behcets Brain Lesions usually appear in the deep white matter of the FRONTAL LOBE of the brain. Have you had an M.R.I with and without contrast material yet? If not you should ask your doctor to perform one.
    Neuro-Behcets can cause Frontal Lobe damage and Mental Problems - all the way to "Dementia".
    Persons with Neuro-Behcets can be, "Mentally and/or Physically Dependent on others" before they die.
    There is no test FOR it. Ruling out M.S., Rhumatoid Arthritis , Lupus, etc., are some of the first steps to a diagnosis of Behcets or Neuro-Behcets.
    The Bla-52 gene test, may show up as a possible Positive indicator.
    Also, a "Positive Pathergy" Test, is positive in about 50% of Behcets patients.
    (I am very "reactive" when Blood is drawn for Lab Tests, about 24-48 hour later, I have large red "welt" like an ant bite , where ever the needle punctured my skin.)
    This is when some one reacts with small to large red bumps when "Pricked" with sterile needles on the inside of the fore arm.
    I suggest you go to the American Behcets Society website and see if all, or some of the symptoms match up with your symptoms. (When I went to the site - There I was! All of those symptoms were mine.
    Best of Luck to you,
