Hi, I am also new today. I am so sorry to here of your pain. I am 25 and have had migriane with aura for about 4 years now. I would say I have 1 every 2 to 3 months( if not more). It is not a every day or even week thing, but when it happens, Its bad! I start with zig-zag vision, then get very confused( sometimes can't talk, think, slurred speech, ect..). Then I get a numb tingling feeling in my right hand. It last 30 min. and then the massive headache hits. I lay in a dark room and cant function for 4 to 5 hours ( last "spell" 1 week ago last Thursday). I am so exhausted for 24 hours that I stay in bed.
I saw my MD the Friday after the last "spell", and I have an appointment with a nerologist tommorow. He (MD) told me I was describing more than a typical migraine and I needed to see the specialist before the migraines caused me to have a stroke.
You seemed to have walked down this road and can relate to how scared I am at the thought of been 25 with 2 babys and having to worry about a stroke!
I just wondered what all happens when you go through these strokes? I think they will probably test to make sure if it is minny stroke or not.
Thanks for listening and sharring your story. You are definitly not alone in this battle.
