Basilar migraines are also commonly known as BTM (Basilar-type migraines) and are a rare type of migraine. These particular types of migraines originate from the base of the brain while affecting both hemispheres. Basilar migraines are often accompanied with aura symptoms. Basilar migraines do not weaken motor skills as other migraine headache types may. Basilar migraines can affect people of all ages yet are most common in adolescent girls.
