Is this normal for migraine? Or is something wrong?

Posted , 5 users are following.

I would like to start off by saying I have been diagnosed with migranes with aura, but I'm not sure if this all is apart of that. Sometimes I will randomly get a tingly numbness in a certain part of my foot, or my hand, or arm and it's quite worrying. Or my face will get numb on just one side, and my eye and head will hurt on just one side. Sometimes it's just random tingleing with no headache, or any other symptoms. Either way this has been pretty alarming, sorry if this is confusing i'm writing this as one is occuring so it's a bit hard to type haha. If you have any questions please ask. I don't get full blown migraines often, just tingleing a lot, and sometimes strange random stuff.

    Hi Skyla,

    You say you have been diagnosed with migraines, but is this just with your GP or a Neurologist?  The symptoms you describe warrant an MRI scan and the full expertise of the Neuro.  The tingling in in feet is not a normal migraine and needs to be investigated further.  Migraines do cause many unusual symptoms and everybody is different.  But if you not seeing a Neuro, its time to NAG your GP to see one, if you dont get properly investigated, of course you will be worried.

    Good luck Skyla and let us know how you get on.

    Take care with best wishes

    Hi yes I would say those symptoms are related to your migraines/aura. I often get a pins and needles type numbness in my arms and face and sometimes in other places.

    Keep a diary of when they happen and take it to your doctor, see what they say.

    Dear Skyla, have you looked into whether they are hemiplegic migraines? When I get a migraine my hands swell up and one side of my face goes numb. I also go tingly. However I do know that people with Hemiplegic migraines can get temporary loss on one side. So maybe that might. S worth looking into. Wishing you lots of support.

    Nicola, I'm glad your suggested looking into a Hemiplegic Migraine (HM).  I had my first and only one ever 4 months ago.  Skyla, look a the HM threads to see if you may be in this category.  Best wishes
