Since November 2013 I have been having horible headaches and sharp stabbing head pains and periods of left sided weakness/stiffness. At first this was diagnosised as possible shingles with Bells Palsy and then Neuralgia. The left sided weakness was put down to anxiousness by a doctor who was more intested in going home on a Friday night then treating his patient. I was put on Tramodol. Then Amitriptlylne.I was diagnosised with migraines after a stay on a stroke ward with another bad attack of the left sided weakness/stiffness. I have since been seeing a really suppportive neurologist who has been trying me on differnt meds to find one that helps. unfortuanlty he is unsure what type of migraine i'm suffering so has referred me to Professor Peter Goadsby at Kings College Hospital. This uncertainy has left me feeling frustrated and fed up. I don't no anyone else who suffers anything similiar. This past week has been really bad as I have come of Propanolol and started on Topiramate. I have had a bad attack of weaknes/stiffness, head pains, migraines. I normally work but we have been shut luckily for the last few weeks. This has effected my life to such a degree. I find myself pretending to people I'm ok when some days I'm not, all i want to do is sleep. Can anyone else relate to that.
