I kept a migraine diary for 3 years. All we could come up with were the bright lights you describe and monthly hormonal cycles. But that was for the migraine with aura. Hemiplegic migraines are a whole other animal. Its like having a stroke without the brain damage. Laat i read the jury's still out on if the nerve damage is permanent. @I always get them on my left side, face droops, peripheral paralysis. And if I can speak no one can understand me. I usually end up with a panic attack on top of it. The migraine itself will go away with a dose of tylenol or ibuprofen. But the other symptoms have hung on for as long as a week. Its scary and frustrating. My mother has never seen me have one but thinks I'm doing illegal drugs when she calls and I can't talk right. For the record I don't use illegal drugs...its just her way...according. to her bipolar and fibromyalgia are my imagination too.
