Migraine


I have had a migraine for four months now. It has cause damage to my brain and the right side of my body. I have symptoms of a stroke because it affects my right side of my body. The meds they gave me only numbs the pain, but dont stop the problem. I have had several test and they all were normal, except the MRI. What is your advice to me on which direction I should go?

Hi.

What were the MRI findings?  Migraine headaches are only given as a differential when other underlying conditions have been ruled out. Migraines do have associated neurologic deficits called aura. However, weakness is of not a  common aura of the classic migraine. If weakness or stroke like symptoms such as slurring of speech and visual loss are present then a stroke or a transient ischemic attack have to be considered first. In your case, the MRI showed something. This is likely to be the cause of your symptoms if the location and extent of the disease condition correlates with your symptoms.

Has your physician discussed the findings with you?
