I was told a vacuum channel blocker was the only known prevention for hemiplegic migraines. I've had two neurologists tell me that so far and my primary care doc. Verapamil is usually the first choice. Maybe she should see a migraine specialist. Some neurologists have never seen an actual case and if they are long out of Med school may not remember it much. Also she should NEVER take any of the triptans or ergotamines to stop any headache. They don't mix well with someone with a history of hemiplegic migraines.
