Since around birth, I've gone to the same pediatrician.....then a few years ago he switched insurance plans....and I switched doctors . I always thought he was a good doctor, but I guess, looking back, he wasn't as good as my family thought. After all, I had projectile vomiting cause of the formula I was on....and he just switched it (celiac?). Starting in first grade (maybe earlier, but I can only remember back to first grade) I had a lot of stomach cramping and vomiting and bloating...I know that was Celiac....he didn't catch it...he thought maybe it was a food allergy, but said it was expensive, and kinda dropped it. I was born two weeks late, and was a big baby (not fat, but really long and "stout", I guess you could say ). Well, over the years I didn't gain a lot of weight (celiac)....didn't catch on or recommend that I see a GI for the stomach issues.
Anyway, when we finally changed doctors cause of his insurance plans, I went to a different doctor....a much nicer guy in my opinion....who heard my symptoms and immediately suggested "Cyclic Vomiting", which is a migraine-related issue. I used to occasionally see "spots" that were kinda like flashing things and blurred my vision for a few seconds when I was sick (not continually, but every now and then I'd get them while i had the cramping and vomiting). He even showed my mom in a medical book how the symptoms of cyclic vomiting matched my celiac disease (gas, bloating, and diarrhea weren't major symptoms, so I hadn't brought them up). However, being a good doctor, he recommended that we see a GI, and recommended the actual doctor who diagnosed me....testing for allergies, celiac disease, and a couple other things with blood-work, and then following up with the biopsy.
Anyway, I've sort of rambled off my whole story here (except for my dealing with symptoms at home ), but my point is, I think migraines are a pretty common thing....if anyone else sees flashy things....spots kinda, it could be a migraine manifesting itself in a different way. I don't know if I actually have that Cyclic vomiting thing....but, anyway, it's just a comment to add to migraines. Don't rule yourself out as having migraines just because you don't get splitting headaches....it doesn't have to come in that form. I'm not sure how relevant this post is to the migraine discussion, but I hope it helps someone .
