Hi, I have suffered hemiplegic migraines for 11 years following a minor head injury. They have been getting worse, as I have been passing out without warning and slumping down on a table, with usual sickness, left sided going numb and jaw so tight cant talk properly, they take about three days to pass, sometimes with severe pain in left eye and back of head. I have recently been given pregabalin 150mg morning and night and so help it helps reduce frequency and intensity. Does anyone else have success with this treatment?, the neurologist said then next one to try would be topiramate. I also wonder if anyone else has other conditions linked to hemiplegic attacks-endometriosis, asthma? They all seem to get worse together at the same time for me. If anyone has found something that has helped with hemiplegic attacks it would be great to hear from you.
