mkoven Posted October 17, 2007 Report Share Posted October 17, 2007 So here I am again with a migraine. this one is clearly hormonal, as I'm 3 days b4 my period. I'd started trigger point injections that seem to help limit migraines at other times of the month, but my shot doctor thought that premenstrual migraines would not be eliminated with those injections. and here I am.so here's the deal. You may remember that I was essentially fired by my neurologist last month. So I don't know who to check in with. I would just tough it out today, if it were just pain. But this migraine seems to have vertigo, numbness, and right-sided clumsiness associated with it. I've previously been told that some of my migraines are hemiplegic, and over a year ago had a full workup--cat scan, mri, mra, with no sign of stroke/tia. And this feels like ones I've had before. But I don't really know what to do when I have one of these scary migraines--just ride it out? It seems I don't really have anyone following my case right now, so I don't even know who to call? I don't want to go to the er, because I'm not even sure what they would/could do for me. Anyone know if untreated hemiplegic migraines are dangerous? And how to treat them, if I'm not supposed to use triptans? Just cancel everything and turn out the lights??? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
