Hello I'm new here, I have been reading a few post and it would seam you are under the specialist at hospitals?
I'm a bit confused about my diagnosis by my gp. I have had 2 brain scans in the last 2 years as syptoms have resembled a stroke.
I get pins and needles in my left arm my face goes numb I get a blinding pain right side of my brain then I pass out I can't talk properly my ct scan show that I didn't have a stroke or any abnormal activities in my brain.
but in Feb this year it got worse.
I was shopping and it happened a lot quicker where it seams like my eyes are looking down a kaleidoscope and I passed out for 15 min it's like I'm drunk and can't talk iv got vertigo I'm nauseous and was rushed to hospital.
My dr said its migraines as ct scans are clear and put me on propranolol but I had a very bad reaction to them so I'm now on topiramate but I'm half my life now asleep with these tablets as my dr keeps upping them to get my body used to a high doss slowly.
I'm really depressed at the min woundering what my quality of life is going to be like.
So im woundering should I have seen a specialist by now not just dr and ct scans?
Should I be told what type of migraines I have
And will I get used to tablets and not feel so tired any time soon.. I feel like iv lost wks at the min.
This is my 3rd mth on topiramate.
It didn't help when my pharmacy double the strength of my topiramate last mth by mistake.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post
