My dtr and I both have migraines. They can start with and C or O shaped object that flutters in our vision, but there is always numbess in the arms and hand. Mine is left, hers is right. We both also have facial tingling. Hers tends to stay around her nose while mine goes to my lips and throat and can feel like I have difficulty swallowing.
We both get confused speech - hard to speak or don't make sense when we talk. The headache does not always follow. Initially I always had a headache first.
My dtr had an MRI and is being referred to a neurologist as she has a Chiari Malformation. Depending on what the neurologist says - I may be getting an MRI to see if I also have the malformation.
Those of you with these strange migraines... Have you had MRI and do you have a Chiari Malformation
