Hi, I've been recently diagnosed with hemiplegic migraine. I've had the symptoms for years, but no one new what it was, and now finally ruling out ms, we have settled on the diagnosis of hemiplegic. I don't get the debilitating head pain, so it was a difficult diagnosis. My migraines primarily affect my right side, although it can be either side and on rare occasion my whole body. I often suffer from paralysis among several other symptoms and just like the both of you have turned my whole world around. I have attacks almost daily, I can't work, I'm going broke and my family is suffering for it as well. I've tried a few drugs with no relief and I've tried to remove several triggers with no relief. I'd love to hear from both of you and maybe together we could figure out a way to cope.
