Would love a bit of advice…
I am 34 and have had migraines since adolescence and always with the full works - would normally cause total loss of sensation down one side (usually right). As a result I got slightly complacent and very good at ignoring weird feelings in my body.
Lately though, things have been persistent…
Tingling and numbness in my big toe for quite some time. Quite often a touch of restless leg syndrome.
Tingling in my little and ring fingers - I had always attributed this to cubital tunnel syndrome but the feeling also sometimes occurs in my middle finger which would be inconsistent with that diagnosis!
Tingling on right side of face - mainly around the cheek.
Sometimes difficulty with words - very subtle but just not normal.
All these things can happen with the migraines but normally go at the end of the attack. The ones above, with the exception of the word trouble, don’t seem to be shifting… as a result I Googled them (!) - now everything seems to be pointing towards MS, which is how I came across this fine forum and all you good people
I have been prone to anxiety (leaning on health anxiety) in the past and know that the body can do the most extraordinary job of materialising symptoms for the mind to panic over! However, the consistency of these is really beginning to bug me.
I actually had an MRI of my head at the end of 2011 (anxiety induced!) and it showed nothing remarkable apparently.
I appreciate that the first advice anyone will give me is to go to the doctors asap and I will, I just can’t get this out of my head at the moment and needed to air - going through the ringer of emotions
