HEMIPLEGIC MIGRAINES!!! I am diagnosed with them and I too have left sided partial paralysis along with peripheral vision loss on the left side, then pain on the right side of the head - HOWEVER - most of the time I get the partial paralysis aura and no "migraine pain" following the aura. I have been seeing my neurologist for a long time now and I have also had MRIs and CT scans because they thought it might be a TIA too when they first started. There are several exsisting threads on the Hemiplegic migraines with lots of helpful info.... Do you have any family history with the migraines? I have familial hemiplegic migraines -- a "gift" from my mother's side of the family. There are also -- I believe they are called Sporadic hemiplegic migraines - so no family connection. Google.com brings up many good websites with information on these -- just type in HEMIPLEGIC MIGRAINES and search! I hope this helps!!
