Just wondered if anyone has had similar symptoms to the ones I'm currently experiencing? I started with a headache about 7 weeks ago which I woke up with one morning. It went away then came back and I've had it constantly for 4 weeks. It seems to originate from the base of my skull and up the left side of my head. A couple of days ago I noticed it felt weird on the left side of my mouth when eating, sort of clumsy. I've now developed speech problems which is really embarrassing and scary! I've seen my GP 3 times and I've now been referred for an MRI. I have lupus and APS (my INR is within range so there doesn't seem to be a risk of blood clot or bleed).
