I get a pretty big variety of symptoms too, sometimes it just depends on the severity of the migraine.
My typical ones are:
aura (everything gets weird and shimmery. Might actually be kinda fun if there wasnt' so much pain involved!)
nausea (vomiting if it's a bad one)
numbness in face/jaw
numbness extending down my left arm
if it's a really bad one, my left leg also begins to go numb
difficulty using my left arm
difficulty speaking/slurring words/words reversals
sensitivity to light and noise
I'm pretty emotional during, but I don't know if that's just because it hurts so darned much! Afterwards I always feel extremely fatigued.
So far my doctor (well the PA, since I can never get in to see the doctor) has told me that I simply can't be having those symptoms (basically, I must be exaggerating or making things up) and that I need to just move on with life and deal with it and take some advil

Right now, I'm
open to just about
anything. And yes, I'm looking for a different doctor that takes my insurance.
I know this probably sounds bad, but I feel better knowing that I'm not the only person that gets more than just the "aura/pain/nausea" and that the PA is wrong.
