Hi everyone - so I'll try to keep this short. Basically after a very bad migraine with aura back in August 2012, I have experienced bouts of weird feelings on the left side of my body. These feelings can wax and wane during the day, and can stick around for months then go away and I'll feel okay again. They tend to get a lot worse when I focus on them, but sometimes no matter what I try just stick around. They're here from waking to sleep sometimes too.
So I experience a kind of VERY mild tingling/burning/numbness on the left side of my face (more tingling around the left side of my mouth). My ear sometimes feels blocked and numb and my neck tingles too. I can still feel my face so it's not completely numb and it's not the kind of pins and needles you get when your hand falls asleep - it's more of a slight burning sensation. I get this in my left hand occasionally and always my left foot.
My left eye feels strange like my body is split in two and my vision is seperate from each eye (sounds crazy!!) and I have a general feeling of tiredness on that side. (Not sure if it's because I'm right handed).
I get terrible visual snow too.
I suffer from REALLY bad health anxiety after losing my mum back in 2010. So naturally I worry about MS, etc. I got an MRI, a nuerologist consultation and seen loads of Dr's and they can't find any explanation. The most they've offered is its anxiety or 'just me'. The strength tests and reflex tests are all normal and MRI came back completely clean too.
So my question is, does anyone else experience this? How long do your episodes last? What helps get rid of them for good?
Many thanks from a scared desperate girl
