Hi, I’m wondering how long it took people to get diagnosed? I had “traditional” migraines in my 20’s, but they went away. Then, 3 years ago, I started having episodes. It took nine months and 12 doctors to finally get diagnosed. I honestly thought I was dying.
Are there really others who get these migraines and how long did it take you to be diagnosed?
hello, I just recently got diagnosed with Hemiplegic migraines after dealing with a migraines for almost 3 months. My neurologist put me on a a preventive that gave me severe side effects and while I wait to see them about starting a new one; what do you guys recommend I do to help keep the migraines away or at least at bay? My stomach is rather shot from all the medicine I've had these past few months so I rather avoid medicine if I can.
Has anyone had any additional tests done about the migraines or been to a neurologist not sure what direction to do since the condition is so rare. Thanks!!
How do I emotionally get past going through the partial paralysis, when it sets me back so bad that i have to relearn how to walk?
Hi! Hemiplegic migraines are awful and I feel really disillusioned because there's so little info out there and I don't know anyone else with this condition. I'd love to talk with other folks who experience HM or other types of complicated migraines. What's worked for you? What hasn't?
