Hello I have my first aura migraine when I was pregnant in 2010, I just had another ealier today, I'm very worried it was a little different and I've never had any tests I had ct scans growing up I've had migraines as long as I can remember. Well the first started witb me outside smoking a cigarette I looked down to flick it, it looked as if my hand was way further away so I went inside. I tried moving a dog, accidentally threw it off the couch my balance or somethimg was off. Went to bedroom started seeing sparks the i asked someone to bring me food, then i couldnt understand what people,were saying, so i quit eating, then my left,arm went numb, next traveled up to my face and tongue, after a bit went away, looked it up, seen aura migraine, then about teninutes later got a migraine, talked to my prenatal doc about it they said yeah sounds like one. Well earlier today my neck was stiff started feelin like I was getting a migraine, so I grabbed bottle of ibp, I looked at it, couldnt see it right, like I couldnt count how manythere were I kept blinking and I had blind spots, I knew it was that, then my epth perception was lost, the I had my older kids take my two year old out for a bit was panicking. So my fiance came in I yelled that my hand was numb, right after my face went numb then my teeth and tongue, I dont know how long probably about fifteen twenty minutes for everything I also got real cold and sweaty and I never got a bad migraine. So does this sound like an aura migraine as well?? I read somewhere that depression meds can do it by messing with serotonins so I may.try to get.off celexa..

Dear DemonDwells

Get your self to the Doctor - this does sound like an aura. I've had several different types and levels of aura - I've smelled cigarette smoke when there was no way that it should have been there. I've had the flashes or chards of light (Like flashes in a broken mirror) squiggles in my vision, and a blurring of central vision with only periferal vision then the central expanded into a outwardly growing circle with the return of central vision and then loss of periferal vision. These lasted about 5 - 10 minutes. I have even gone blind from right eye across to the left eye with an aura - or occipital migraine.
Occasionally, I will get numb - but numbness is nothing to take lightly
- get checked out!! sometimes pregnancy will make such changes that ALL of the chemicals and hormones in the brain and body get messed up. See if you PCP ( primary care physician is willing to run some more tests to see if there is anything else making it's presence known.
Anti-depressents can create the serotonin syndrome - but it may be something more -
I have found that the website Drugs.com and WebMed are good for finding out information on medications and symptoms.
It has been a long time since I've had a major migraine with debilitating pain and nausea. But I have recently been undergoing testing and I may also have RA or lupus.
That is for another chat.

Thanks, I see my family doctor tuesday morning, I will talk to her, may have to find another doctor, sometimes she don't listen very well our forgets to write my referrals, I'm taking zantac, hydtocodone four back pain and celexa, I'm only 26 I've had tunnel vision twice at grocery stores,i won't even go in grocery or department stores,i think its the lighting. I have svt which is a rapid heart rate it happens daily. I am agoralhobic, don't like leaving the house at all. I've been working on it. I have 3kids, and I feel like I'm too young to have the problems I didn't ever go to the hospital for the aura migraines because about 4 our 5 years ago I went four back pain was having a svt attack, didn't know I has that, they kept asking if I did drugs which no I don't.then they gave me a shot teo or three times,it stops and restarts your heart it didn't work at first n it hurts so bad, your whole body and feels like u can't breath so I try to calm myself at home and self diagnose a lot but I do see a family doctor once a month I just don't like hospitals.
