hi i'm new here and i don't know where to even post this... but here it goes. on March 22nd i woke up at 5 am with numbness in my left foot it wasn't pins and needles it was more like swelling when i got out of bed it quickly shot up to my face on left side. i began to slur my words after a few mins, the numbness went down but was still noticeable. I started a new birth control that day and read that i could have been a side effect. i went to the er and had an mri done on my brain and it came back clean so the dr told me that it was most likely migranes. Migranes run in my family and i have had them before when i was younger.( I'm 27 years old now) Well i ewnt home adn a few days later it happened again, only this time the numbness was intense swelling feeling after that i got extremly sick to my stomach and had migranes. I went to a neruologist and he says that its migranes caused by my birth control. He put me on presidone another medication, and nitrogin shots and told me to come back in 2 weeks. Well i took the shots, didn't have eppisodes but my numbness was getting worse. I noticed that i get the extreme numbness when i sleep on my left side. When i went back to him he was confused why the steriods didn't work and put me on gabapintion. i'm now going to a chiropractor to hope that it will get fixed but he had me get mri on neck and that came back clean... I just want this numbness to go away and feel better. I have 2 young kids and i need to feel normal. Can anyone here maybe suggest it could be something more then migranes? becasue i really feel that it isn't just migranes causing this.....
