Hi. I was diagnosed last year with hemiplegic migraines after first being misdiagnosed with a TIA. I take sumatriptan which works well for me but I am having some serious issues with my memory, both short and long and have had for some time.
When they carried out a Brain MRI they found a couple of white matter lesions which they told me not to worry about as it wasn’t MS!
I have had my memory tested by a psychologist with RBANS tests, the last one a couple of months ago. He said my memory is fine but I struggle with names particularly and also feel like I’m living in a fog.
My migraines don’t seem particularly bad, but I get odd smells, tingling lips, pins and needles, odd feelings in my right arm when I get them.
I really feel like I am losing it big style, the only thing that keeps me going is that I seem to recover for a while and feel better.
Question is, is there anybody out there who has the same problem?
Any thoughts welcome
