I'm new here and just wanted to get some info from knowledgeable migraine sufferers. I'm a 28yr old female and a few months ago I started seeing my doctor due to dizzy spells/vertigo and fatigue. I was low in iron and had an iron infusion. Fatigue continued and got quite severe, didn't improve for about 6 weeks after I had the infusion. During this time I had an 'episode' with my right arm, tingling, numbness, weakness, hands cramping this lasted about at least 3hrs, went to bed and woke up with weakness and aching particularly in my hand joints that last for about 3 days with random shooting pains in up my arm and an on/off dull headache at the back of my skull. I now have a permanent slight weakness in my right hand/arm and the aching comes and goes depending on physical activity (I had not done anything to hurt it). Initially was treated as suspected stroke but after bloods and an MRI, that was ruled out. MRI showed a number of small non specific lesions on my brain. Was referred to neurologist. Before I saw him it had moved to my right leg and I was getting buzzing/tingling, aching and heavy dead leg sensation. I was getting a persistent twitch on my right side skull which is back now and feels like something is crawling through my hair, yuck! My fatigue had eased and my symptoms were coming and going less regularly by the time I saw him. He did some tests and said I do have a right side deficit in my arm and ordered Spinal MRI. He has ordered B12 and magnesium blood tests and gave me a script for a migraine preventative and string painkiller as he thinks it's migraines with aura. I don't normally need to take pain killers for the headaches when I get them, usually I can ignore it til it goes away. So I don't know why he prescribed me strong painkillers? Does this sound like migraine aura to you? From my research it seems migraine auras generally only last up to an hour, this certainly isn't the case for me. I don't have a history or family history of migraines. And obviously he thinks the right arm deficit is caused by something else. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
