5 weeks ago i had an attack of some sort, right side of face tingling, hand tingling and heavy arm which resulted in me going to a&e. Was told not a tia by a specialist but a migraine. Since then I've had constant head pressure, numbness face & lips and am thinking all sorts of things wrong main one being brain tumor or bleed. Had an mri on Tuesday so anxiously awaiting results. Been to the Doctors several times n said it's anxiety/stress and can cause these symptoms. Am not on any medication as doctor wants to see results first. I go to bed with a headache and wake up with a headache. I just want to wake up one day & be free of it 😔 am at my wits end. I have my daughter's christening tomorrow so I have to just smile through it. Anyone else have these symptoms.

Yes, and it is under the umbrella of migraines. However, some of the symptoms like the arm can be relieved by going to a chiropractic doc. Go to one that takes their own xrays.

Pinched nerve can cause this also, if no relief or gets worse see a neuro

Mri was ok didn't show anything. Doctor gave me citalopram for my anxiety but after 8 days of what i can only describe as pure hell i came off them and i feel a lot better now. Still get a headache now n then but a couple of paracetamol sorts it out which it never did before. Strange that. No other symptoms at all now. I feel fine. Thank you for asking.
