Hi everyone, I am new to my symptoms. Just this past December I had a complex migraine that presented much like a stroke. It was after that event that I began having significant continued side effects that are similar to what many of you describe. I have suffered from migraines with aura in the past but never have I had a complex migraine and I certainly have never experienced before what I have been experiencing these past couple of months.
I thought I was going crazy at times! I thought the sensations I feel were in my head or due to anxiety. Over the past months I have been doing a lot of research and have been trying many things to control my symptoms. I have had many emotional breakdowns… because what we experience can be so difficult… and not many people understand.
Thankfully I have a very supportive husband and family and I have a second opinion with a neurologist on Wednesday. I am hopeful that I can gain control of this but I am SO glad to have found this community of people who are experiencing many of the same things that I am going through.
