I've recently (2 weeks ago) been diagnosed with migraines. Came on very suddenly and I was diagnosed right away, but I have some confusing symptoms they're struggling to understand.
About a week before my first migraine, I started getting really intense facial flushing, my face will go bright red and hot for up to a few hours. It happens during the migraines but it also happens when I'm fatigued and I crash.
I also get this muscle/limb twitching. Its like a jolt goes through an arm or a leg and tenses it up for a second, making it jerk up. It isn't a dramatic movement, just little jumps. It'll happen in attacks, one limb at a time randomly every few seconds for a minute or so. It doesn't hurt but the involuntary muscle contractions are somewhat uncomfortable and leave me with some weakness for up to 10 minutes after. It first happened during a migraine but since then it's also happened when I crash from fatigue. It happens with the facial flushing. I would say it happens 5 out of 7 days a week as well as 1-2 migraines a week.
My main concern is that it could be some kind of epilepsy or similar condition that is being covered up by the headaches. The doctors have put me on wait and see and asked me to keep a close record of it all for the next 2 weeks.
All of this came on very suddenly over the last 3 weeks, but before that I have had chronic chest, back, and pelvic pain and fatigue for almost 2 years. Does anyone have experience with something similar, or have any ideas what it could be?
