Brand new to the forum, apologies if I’m posting in the wrong place. If I’m breaking any rules, let me know and I’ll repost elsewhere.
I’ve been suffering with migraines since I was a kid and am fairly used to them now when they come (as in I know it’s a migraine, I know broadly what to expect etc.)
For quite a long time now I’ve also been getting dizzy spells (totally unconnected to actually getting a headache/migraine…it could happen at any point) and I was recently (FINALLY) diagnosed with “migraine associated vertigo”, so migraine issue 2.
In the last couple of months I’ve also been getting really ill on a semi regular basis, and in the same week as I was diagnosed on the dizziness stuff, I was also diagnosed with “abdominal migraines”, migraine issue 3!
Here comes my first question: there’s limited information on abdominal migraines that I can find, anyone else been diagnosed with it as an adult for the first time? Any idea why it would just suddenly start?
My second question is: for the last year and a half or so I’ve been getting weakness and tingling in my arm and leg (predominantly on the left hand side). I never thought it might be a migraine related thing, but after my two most recent diagnoses, and trying to research abdominal migraines I read about Hemiplegic migraines which can result in weakness. Is it possible that this would be the explanation for the weakness I’ve been getting? Everything I’ve read makes it sound much more severe than what I get however. Can there be varying degrees of severity in the weakness?
Also – anyone know if it’s usual to just endless different types of migraine!?
Sorry…that’s a bit of a ramble. Any pointers anyone could give me would be great!! Thanks
