Hi Everyone, When I first started getting migraine at 17 years old, it was a severe one sided headache. This evolved into feeling sick aswell which sent me to bed. The by my early 30's I was vomiting a lot too(1-3 attacks per month). I guessed this was migraine although the Doc would not commit himself. Then after I had my son, I was 35, the pain and vomiting became more severe and more frequent - 1-2 per week. Finally the Doc agreed it was migraine and I began treatment!!!
I am 52 and average 2-3 attacks per week now (not vomiting as much though).Unfortunately I have not seen a Headache specialist yet and the 3 different Neuros that I have seen cannot give me an answer to my question, so I have assumed that I have some sort of Hemiplegic Migraine because the affected side of my face goes numb sometimes with some tingling, and my eyelid drops until my eye closes and it is nearly impossible to open it, and some attacks make me feel very weak so all I can do is lay down. Maybe my assumption is wrong, has anyone any ideas? Ann
