I have constant hemiplegic migraines according to my neurologist. I have lost some mobility in my left leg, and have numbness in my face and foot most of the time. about twice a month I get "traveling numbness" that starts on my left side, travels up my body and leaves me unable to speak correctly. I loose my vision almost daily, and have seizures that effect my right side about 2 times per month. And not to mention the headaches themselves. According to my doctor these sypmtoms are extreme, but related to the hemiplegic migraines. There isn't alot of information out there on these types of migraines so I just wondered if someone else experiences the same symptoms. I have suffered from headaches since I was a kid, and I am now 31. The seizures didn't start till 5 years ago though, and it is getting progressively worse. My MRI's have been normal, as well as my EEG's, and the spinal tap results got lost and i refuse to have another one. I have refused medication until a doctor gave me a definite diagnosis, and now that I have a diagnosis I just wonder if it is possible to be on medications that don't make me tired??
