Welcome to the Numbness Tingling Forum

  1. OVER THE PAST 2 YRS, AS STRESS IS WORSE I GET THESE SQIGGLY FLASHING LINES IN MY VISION. IM DIZZY AND A LIL SICK TO MY STOMACH. THEN A HEADACHE WILL START WITHIN AN HR. FOR YEARS I HAD MIGRANES BUT HAVENT EXP ANY IN THE LAST 8YRS OR SO. AFTER THE HEADACHE STARTS I WILL GO NUMB IN MY FACE MOUTH AND ONE OF MY ARMS- TYPICALLY MY LEFT. AT TIMES IF H IVE ASKED DRS ABOUT IT THEY WANT TO TELL ME ITS NOTHING MAJOR. THESE HEADACHES DONT LAST MORE THAN 2 HOURS WHEREAS MY OLD MIGRAINES WOULD LAST ALL DAY.

    1. help.

        It sounds like you really need to see a headache specialist for an appropriate diagnosis. Any time your Migraine or headache pattern changes is a reason to seek help from a professional who can diagnose and treat you.



        Unfortunately, we can't diagnose what's going on here. Your doctor needs to do that.



        Maybe this would be an interesting question for the Ask The Expert portion of Migraine.com http://bit.ly/fZjuv6 Please keep in mind that our doctors cannot diagnose you, but might be able to tell you more about these general symptoms. 😀

        1. I have noticed that whenever my pain gets above a 7 I start feeling a loss of sensation in my hands and fingers, I say sensation because it is not quite numbness. It sort of feels like my fingers are swelling up and it becomes difficult to bend them or grasp things. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I don't know if this is a symptom or a reaction to the inevitable tensing of my shoulders and upper arms when the attack reaches a certain level.
