Doctors need to listen to patients' symptoms. My stroke had no external visible signs but in my head I was walking like a drunk with leaden feet and scissoring movements. Three doctors failed to listen and I was told to go home and made to feel a nuisance.. Finally after 2 months of feeling really unwell, an MRI ( which I instigated and paid for) showed I had had a stroke. Four months later I had sudden episodes of poor balance, unsteady gait and sometimes collapse. Again these symptoms were disregarded by doctors until I arranged to see a specialist. The stroke had apparently triggered migraine which I have not suffered since my teens. I would be interested in anyone else's experience of migraine triggered by stroke.The headaches are not too bad but the ground rocks; my feet have pins and needles or are very weak. The attacks seem to occur weekly at the moment.
