yesterday i was diagnosed with migraines after suffering for a year and a half without knowing what was happening. i've lost functionality in my right ear, though my hearing is still intact, and the left side of my body (head to toes) is constantly numb and tingling. when a migraine comes on, i don't get splitting headaches, which is why nobody knew what was going on (and thought it was MS). i get pressure in my head, i get vision loss in my left eye, muscle tightness and binding pains, the tingling and numbness spreads throughout my body, and i experience loss of balance, dizziness and extreme fatigue. my most recent migraine started last friday and i have no idea how long it will last. i'm in first trimester pregnancy so i can't take any medications for awhile.
just coming on to the site to read more about migraines, how they affect people, and what others are doing to nurture themselves. also interested in knowing if anyone else experiences migraines the way i do.
thanks for your time
