My so-called migraines started about 8 years ago, after a minor fender bender. 6 years ago I started to develop left-sided facial tingling. Just this past April I finally convinced my doc to send me for a brain MRI. The only thing found was a nasty sinus infection. Then in August 2006, I was rear ended again, at this time I had already spent 12 weeks in physical therapy, trying to get some relief to this neck and shoulder pain that I have had for 6 years. Well needless to say, this accident put the icing on the cake. I get ear pain, pain around my eye, forehead, down the side of my neck, the back of my skull, and shoulders. After the accident in August, I had a c-spine MRI done, it showed a bulging disk at C-3, C-4. I probably have had this all the time though I would imagine. Now I get bug crawling sensations in my upper back and upper legs. Even though there is no evidence of spinal cord compression on my MRI, could this cause these weird feelings that I get in my legs and back, or is it some type of migraine thing, even though I don't have the headache at the time of the feelings, does any one else have strange feelings throughout their body that suffer from migraines? I have never had the facial tingling with the migraine, it seems that I have this almost everyday to a certain point, some days I have this feeling more, some days less, but its never there when I get the migraine. Can anyone help?
