I had a hemiplegic migrane (I think) a couple weeks ago.
I had blotchy vision, then pins and needles and numbness and paralysis in my arm and hand, then my face and tongue, then my leg and foot. I was unable to speak properly. I regained walking and speech after a few hours but the paralysis lasted about 12 hours . I used to have the hemiplegic migraines when I was on the birth control pill at age 19, but I never had one since I went off them. I have had a cat scan and it was clear. They are sending me for an MRI next month. They are concerned thet this was either a stroke or is MS as I am only 31 and too young for a stroke. They feel this concern as the numbness is till present three weeks later On my left side I am still very weak and it is painful to use. Has anyone with this condition every experienced this?
Thanks for your time.
