Does anyone else get migraines with "stroke" symptoms? At times half my body will go numb and I'll have other vision problems.

      When you say half do you mean just the entire right side or left side? That sounds like a hemiplegic migraine to me. You experience weakness all the way to paralysis on one side of your body during a migraine attack

        @Pinkewink I was thinking the same exact thing. If that's the case, see a neurologist. It's one of those things it's better to get diagnosed sooner. There are also other migraines that have numb or tingling sensations, especially inclusive of auras. Either way, I would still suggest doctor involvement.

          @MandazInTC yes absolutely see a neuro. And stay away from triptans if you’re already on one for migraines
