I have been diagnosed with Hemiplegic migraines, and have been getting lots of Auras in the last month. So havent felt right and am always tired.
yesterday, I woke up in the afternoon, and I had tingling down rightside of my body. my right arm was very shaky, so immediately took some Aspirin. The top of my right cheek was twitching too. Within half an hour of taking the Aspirin I went numb down rightside, My arm felt like it had that dead feeling and I had to keep shaking it.
This morning I still felt not right, and blood pressure spiked to 158/109 so decided to go into hospital. my right side of my head didnt hurt just felt like pressure. as I was getting ready I noticed my right eyebrow and eye was drooping so immediately called an ambulance, they said they were busy and to relax and only call them if I get worse. I fell asleep and was woken up by 999 apologising for the delay, I noticed my numbness had worn off alot, and my eye had righted itself, so I cancelled the ambulance and called 111 for advice, was put through to a nurse and after the assessment she said that I needed to get to a and e within the hour. i am so tired, i just went to bed and then my head started to hurt so have taken two aspirins. i dont want to drive or spend 3 hrs in a and e to be sent home with no ct scan due to my hemi migraines. My bp is starting to go down, and I just want to sleep. I cant stop wondering if I have had a stroke, and would be interested in anyones thoughts on this.
