Hello everyone! I'm new here I was hoping someone could help. I was diagnosed with hemiplegic migraine in August last year after my first attack in 2014, when I was hospitalised. The neurologist I saw was exceptional. I'm in my final year of studying at uni and stress makes the attacks worse. I have been left to my own devices, which is obviously fine, but becomes quite frustrating when my GP doesn't quite understand the extent of how the attacks seem to be changing as they don't really understand the type of migraine. I take amitriptyline every night and I'm waiting for an appointment at my local migraine centre, as a medical specialist suggested a spinal disc bulge could be causing the migraine and could possibly be helped by having physiotherapy at the migraine clinic. The attacks are getting worse the numbness on my face is a lot worse, I ocassionaly have twitching on my left side under my eye and at the side of my mouth and I'm begining to feel like I'm not in the room at all when this is happening. It's more intense than before. I've read some posts about dietary changes and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions that they have found help with this type of migraine? I'm open for any suggestions such as types of exercise, etc. I really want to try and help myself and prevent the attacks as much as possible especially going into my final semester. Thanks in advance !
