Hi, I'm new to the group. I have been getting migraines periodically for 35 years. A few times as a child, a few times while pregnant with my son, and several times over the last year and a half. I get auras, numbness, have suffered aphasia. Last summer I has one for several days and was left with a confused foggy feeling for a few days after the pain stopped. It was to the point that I couldn't drive and had to ask my husband which toothbrush was his because I couldn't remember. All I could really do was wait it out. Take vitamins. Rest. I didn't have a migraine for quite a while after that.
I recently went through a very stressful week due to my out of state father getting in a severe car accident. All is getting better with him now, but for that week I was 24 hou care giver, cook, maid, pet sitter, chauffeur, errand girl, called insurance people, doctors, therapists, homecare, towing company. I did all of that on completely on my own, on about 6 hours of sleep for the week. Things are settling and I have been home for week. I have had three migraines since returning home, and haven't been able to kick the foggy feeling yet.
Does anyone else get that brain fog? The last time I had it it lead to two EEG's and an MRI, which lead to nothing. It's such a weird, confusing feeling, I would almost rather have the migraine than that feeling.
