Hi all,

For the last week I've been suffering from a really mild but rather annoying light headedness. It gets worse and better at times.

About a week ago I was lying in bed and started feeling numbing in my thumb. I tried to shake the feeling back but it wasn't working. I soon started to notice a dull acheing behind my right eye and then the left side of my face started going numb. The acheing was behind my right eye.

I got out of bed and went to take some neurofen but the numbness started to spread over my entire left hand and down in to the left side of my mouth and over my tounge and throat. To the point where I had trouble swallowing. The numb feeling went away after about 20 minutes but the headache kept getting worse. I ended up having a fairly bad headache for the rest of the next day.

Ever since then i've been feeling really light headed and it's starting to get rather frustrating. Does anyone know if there's anything wrong with me? Or was it just a migraine and I'm still recovering?
