Hi, I don't know if anyone can advise me at all,
Before 6 weeks ago, I was happy, always alert, good concentration, good health really & I went to work one Monday morning & I felt fine I was having a laugh with my colleagues coz I'm totally opposite Monday's im wide awake & not long before lunch suddenly I got stuck with this sudden pain in my eye like stranglation feeling in my left eye (it didnt feel
Like a migraine) and then I had this funny sensation down left side of my face (didn't droop) it all went numb right down to my jaw & inside my mouth my speech went slurry & all down my left arm & leg, it was something id never felt before, I went into this attack the first 5 minutes was the worst and lasted about an hour, I was rushed to A&E & they did tests including MRI which came back normal & the neurologist diagnosed me with Hempilegic migraine, now I admit I suffer migraines but very very rare my migraines are just the ones that last upto 2 hours until I'm sick & then it disappears and then I'm full of energy like nothing happened! But this I suffered was something different nothing Id ever experienced, also since then it's 6 weeks later now, it was only that one attack that ive had (first time ever), but since then ive suffered really bad fatigue, dizziness, vertigo, like this blurry vision ( I went to eye clinic who said my eyes are normal) it's feels like I'm Tipsy, I can't concentrate, ive got no focus, increased sensitivity to light & sound, muscle spasms in my legs etc ( I haven't got a migraine present or anything) ( I didn't have any of these symptoms before I had the attack) it's getting me really down coz quality of life has gone, Im off work and been signed off for further more weeks I can't go to work like this, I want to learn to drive (seems impossible) doctors aren't very helpful, I just don't know what to do, is this a hemiplegic migraine or was this a TIA or something else? I'm same im wondering how long these symptoms are going to last it's 6 weeks now and the symptoms aren't improving, it's like I'm brain damaged!bits horrible :'( xx
