    Hi Rachel,

    The exact same thing happened to me and previous to this I have been suffering with pressure and pain in my head so very worried but, as happened with you, I was taken to hospital as they suspected a stroke but after many weeks of waiting I eventually seen a neurologist and I have a form of neuralgia which thankfully can be helped.  I still have problems with my speech occassionally but one of the symptons of neuralgia in the head is migraine type problems.

      I can understand how  you feel as I have been so ill since January I began thinking the worse - but this really doesnt help matters.  I have learnt that these sort of problems are hard to diagnose and most doctors are unable to help straight away and unfortunately you have to be patient and wait for the various tests.  If nothing is found on a CT or MRI scan then its definitely not a tumor etc.  Migraine can cause terrible problems and the illness I have now wont be fixed quickly unfortunately but at least I feel more positive now.

    Yes, I get various flashing lights. My face can go numb, usually on one side. I get visual disturbance---can see flat surfaces as sloping, and it feel my speech is confused but others say I sound ok. 

    It's finding the cause of the migraines that's the key to living pain free. Mine were hormonal when I was younger. Get rid of the hormones and my food triggers rocketed! I now have a limited diet. It's boring but I can live headache free so it's worth it.

    make a headache diary so you can check hormone causes.

    then cut out every trigger food you can think of. Introduce just one, if you get a migraine you know it's that food.

    good luck

    Drinking chocolate---that was one of the first things that I noticed caused migraines. At first coffee made me feel strange, very spaced out, wasn't long before this changed to headaches.

    the feeling odd after the pain has subsided is common. It's horrible, inconvenient when you have to work or look after children ( or both!) but seems to go with the migraines.
