Has This Happened to You?

I started having Migraine with Aura when I was 23, I am now 40. I would get the zig-zag vision changes then once it subsided I'd get a headache on one side of my head. Over the years I've noticed that I get numbness and tingling or one side of my body just feels odd but does not always get the head pain.

I also get brief zaps of head pain. I guess ice pick headache.

A week ago I had an episode after I drank an ice-cold slushy. I experienced a sharp head pain in the right temple and numbness in the right cheek, then right arm, right the leg. Symptoms lasted less than a min.
