Hi wwise!! Yes Lamictal is one of many medications that people use for FHM or Hemiplegic migraine= Sporadic migraine all these are the same disease the different between them are that if you have FHM it runs in the family, and you have family members or relatives with the same disease, if you dont have it then its called Hemiplegic migraine.
I dont have epilepsy, i have FHM and Lamictal helps with the aura for me, for the headache i use Zomig and painrelife with codein. Have you taken the gene test? and have some one in your family the same disease? Yes its nice to talk to people who suffers from this, i was so happy when i found this forum.
I come from Sweden and havent found anyone on the Swedish migraine pages who have this diagnosis, so its a really rare disease all over the world. For most of us it have taken many years to get this diagnos as for you too. From what country do you come from?
Bye / Sweden
