Hello all I would like to tell my story. I have had migraines all my life as long as I can remember anyway... I am 32 yrs old. Recently on Aug. 30 I woke up from a good rest I thought that had relieved a headache from the day before. I got up just as my normal routine and went and fixed my coffee for the morning. I then noticed a numb like area on my left outer thigh, didnt think anything of it.. other than it felt funny to me and I knew it wasnt right. Later about
4 to 5 hours I started to feel this tingling sensation, numbness like in my left arm and up my shoulder, it then preceeded to move to the left side of my face, I just did not feel right and knew it was not normal. I called my mother who is a RN. She told me to go the ER she thought I may be having a stroke. Within an hour I got a severe headache that would not stop throbbing on the left side of my head. The Er doctor did a CT scan, then tried to diagnosis me with MS. My family told him that was not good enough for them and wanted more test run. He then admitted me so that they could do a MRI and consult the neurologist. The next morning the headache was gone but the tingling sensation and heavy feeling in my left arm was still there. The neurologist orders a ECHO, EKG,MRI, and blood work, and ultrasound of my neck arteries. These test come back fine. He then tells me that I have what he called variant or complicated migraines, but never does he say Hemiplegic. This is the only one I can find that has these symptoms. Can anyone please help me to figure out if this is what I actually have and is that his way of not saying Hemiplegic. I do have migraines that run in the family, my mother and grandmother have them and have all their lives. Any help or information would be gladly appreciated.
