Hi guys. I have suffered with migrainesome now for over 16 years on and off they have been so bad they have left me with stroke like symptoms.
I have left side weakness. Left side stabbing headache. Face has drooped. Slurred speech and memory loss. The pain and paralysis will go but only for a matter of hours before returning
I am currently having the worst "hemiplegic migraine" I have had and am getting very little response from my GPS other than to keep on with the topirimate and zolmitriptan, none of which are having any affect at all. I initially went to A&European as I and ambulance crew assumed a stroke. CAT scan was clear.
I have other conditions that make me high risk of a stroke, so of course this worries me. I have a lot of stress right now which I am sure is not helping, but is out of my control.
The doc just keeps saying it is migraine... not even suggested that it could be hemiplegic migraine... dispite the fact that I keep passing out.
How have you guys overcome this and do you think I amight right in my self diagnosis?
