I am going emotionally crazy.  My symptoms started 10 days ago with a trip to the ER.  I was sitting at home watching t.v. and all of a sudden I had this burning sensation on the left side of my face around my eye.  My eye also burned and it felt like I was going to pass out.  I then kicked into panic mode.  My whole body flushed with heat and I was tingling.  Ever since, I have been having these episodes amost daily.  Each time I get the heat/prickly left eye/head sensation I feel like I am going to pass out.  Sometimes the tingling starts in the arm and it works up to my head.  Bottom line I feel like am going crazy.  My chest is always tight!  I am terrified that I am going to have a stroke.  I went to the hospital twice and they were not concerned.  I went to my doctor and she said it sounds like an aura migraine (without the migraine pain). I just had some blood work today.  The anxiety and head confusion is terrible and I am so scared this burnig feeling around me eye will happen again.  It makes my how body flush...sorry to ramble..but does this sound like an aura silent migraine?

Sounds like Complex Migraine, which is what I have. That flushed feeling is part of it so is the numbness and tingling. It is not an aura migraine. They should give you a tryptiline like Imitrex or Frova.
