Migraine with tingling and numbness

Hi all. I don't often get migraines but I have had a few. I think for the first few I just had blurry vision before the pain. Then last time I got blurry vision then tingling in one hand. I had another migraine yesterday and had all those symptoms before the pain but even had a bit of numbness in my mouth and had slight trouble speaking. I was starting get worried not knowing what it was but then the pain started and other symptoms subsided. I am fine today. So my question is as someone who rarely gets migraines should I be concerned at all about extra migraine symptoms or are these just common?

  1. I should also mention I am 29 and healthy otherwise

    1. welcome to the community! We are glad you're here! Suffering from migraine disease is awful. I'm sorry you have to endure that. Here is a good article that goes through the basics of what migraine is and it shows some of the most common symptoms associated with the disease.
      Migraine is a sneaky disease and it affects different people differently. The experiences we have with an attack cycle many times are similar to other people's symptoms, but there is usually something unique about your own experience. Migraine symptoms can also mimic some of the same symptoms as a stroke which can be quite scary. A couple of good tips are for you to track, journal, or keep a diary of your attacks and the symptoms you are experiencing. You can even document how it affects your life. I would also recommend that you see your primary doctor or GP to discuss what you have been experiencing. This is where tracking your attacks can be a powerful tool as you share that with your doctor. Your doctor may order tests to help rule out any other possible conditions that may cause the symptoms you are mentioned. Controlling and managing migraine disease is a process that takes some time, but the earlier you address it the more likely you are to have a good outcome. Please know that you are not alone. This community is full of people who understand migraine disease and its symptoms. There is a wealth of resources for you to tap into, and you can actively take part in any forums or article comment threads. As always we are here for your support! Warmly, Cheryl team

      1. I totally feel that. The tingling sensation I first felt spread from my hand, to half of my body! I had never never heard of hemiplegic migraine until I had experienced it first-hand (pun intended).

        Here's an article on the matter!

        It made me feel so much better knowing that it was not only normal, but connected to migraine. I thought I was sleeping through some sort of permanent paralysis!

        I would consult your doctor when you have changing symptoms. Migraine presents itself in many different ways to different people, so there really isn't a one-size fits all scenario.

        I hope you've found our resources helpful and have taken a step towards healing!
