I'm glad u started this thread and told us a little about u'rself. I posted to u'r other thread and told u i'm undx'd, but u'r situation sounds a little like mine. I didn't start to notice symptoms til last Feb, but in the hosp after the birth of my first child, i would get numb legs that lasted about three months. It went away so i forgot about it. Seems many here can relate the beginning of their symptoms to an event in their lives.
On the migraines, i am going thru something like this now. I get terrible pain in my right eye. I have really dry eyes and a prob with part of the cornea, but i'm told that's not the reason for the pain. The docs say it's migraines. So, to answer u'r question, i just started some new med for that called Maxalt and it's wonderful! It's taken at pain onset and the type i take just disolves on u'r tongue. So far i've only used it twice, but both times have just been like a miracle! It takes about an hour to really be free of any pain, but that's soooo much better than days!! There are other meds out there. Some are preventative like Topamax and many have much success with them, but for me the Maxalt has been great. I hope this helps and u get some relief from u'r migraines. Welcome again to the board!
