Hey guys, I'm new to this but I've been diagnosed with a hemiplegic migraine in January 2017 after what they thought was a stroke my face drooped big style my left arm and leg had no sensation no movement no reflexology nothing! Even all the little tests they did nothing my BP was at its all Time highest and then suddenly dropped when moved to the ward.. but no fluids were given intravenously (baring in mind I work in this hospital so I know the protocol) but nothing was done I was too weak to do anything no neuro obs were done on me as I had suffered a head injury prior and the nurse looking after me was going mad because nothing had been prescribed for me and no body was coming to see me (e.g stroke team) because the ct (thank goodness) was normal.. but because my left side was practically paralysed I was getting weaker and weaker and began choking on my own saliver so he rang the stroke team and said you must come see this girl now.
They came.. lifted my arms up for me.. surly they have to see you try do it for yourself ? Anyway because I'd had no pain relief my head hurt so I said ow my head because he raised my arms above my head.. His words and I quote " none stroke she's for neuro "
I got discharged a week later with a diagnosis of a hemiplegic migraine a walking stick (as I was still suffering with my left hand side) and some form of epileptic tablet called toprimate? (Yet im not epileptic .. apparently it's to help with the pressure in my brain) to be increased up too 100mg before I see neurology on the 21st March.. and yet I still feel like I've got pressure in my head (I say nelly the elephant is sat on it) I'm on 75mg now
I lost my vision 2 weeks ago, and my feet and face have only just started to discolour and go blue and purple but the gp says it's fine ???? How is that fine ???
I keep having attacks (hemiplegic attacks) and the gp says I should only go to him if it happens on the right hand side as that's different .. so I did last week on Wednesday as it started on my right side.. did he do anything ? Not at all.
So now I'm stuck.
Do I do something or wait it out ?
Much love A ❤
