Hi, i wonder if anyone can help me, Im only 20 yrs old but through out my teens Ive experienced a numbness that randomly spreads through my fingers and often eventually to both hands accompanied by like a wavy blindness that means I can see partially and sometimes quite a strong headache like at the minute which is why I wrote in, I have never been been to the doctors for it as it happens quite rarely but it comes about every couple of months maybe and this time I experienced tingling in my face too!!

Just don't want it to be an early indicator of anything more serious??

Hope someone knows sum info!!

Thanks :)

  • Sounds like symptoms of migraine, I get the same sometimes even inside my mouth goes numb and I can't speak properly, the first time it happened I thought I was having a stroke, I didn't even get the headache till the next day very scary. Flourescent lighting can be a trigger,as can cheese, coffee, & chocolate if you overdo it. My migraines were mainly due to contraception pills doc took me off the pill and my attacks reduced by about 85% stress can be major factor and women often have more attacks between ages 25-40, go have a chat with your doctor, there is medication which may help.:o
