I first had this experience when I was 4 months pregnant(2001) with my oldest child 9 years ago. I got a slight headache in my temple (can not rem which side at that time) it was not a migraine it wasnt too severe did not interfer with what I was doing. The headache its self last bout 15 mins then I got this weird blurred"void" in my vision. If i put my hand in front of my face i could not see it thru the blurr. But I was able to see around the blurr. But I also had no perifial(sp?) view. Bout 5 mins of that and my tongue and side of my face started tingling. Then both my hands went tingly. Like if you lay on it and it falls asleep. The 5 mins later everything was gone. I just assumed maybe it was part of a pregnant thing. So never mentioned it again. Had another child with no incidence and then in 2006 I became pregnant with my third child. And had all these symptoms more frequently and lasting longer. I did mention it to my OBGYN and he had blood work drawn up along with an MRI. Blood work showed thrombophilia along with protein S profeicincy. MRI showed nothing but I also could not lay on my back being 8 months pregnant for the whole hr they wanted. After I delivered my daughter did the same blood work and it came back fine. I experienced these symptoms a few times while I wasnt pregnant. In 2008 I had a normal symptom free pregnancy. A few more incidences and in 2010 I was pregnant with my 5th child in which I experienced these symptoms quiet often also. Seen a neurologist who said my neuro exam was normal and that they woudl test me after my daughter was born. She is 2 months now and I have already had these problems 3 times. I am scheduled for another MRI which I am scared of because I am highly clostrophobic. The neurologist asked me why I do not think its a vision issue??? I could understand if I only had the blurred vision but the numbness and now when i get these it seems as those I cant remember what I am talking bout mid sentence or even rem where I am driving too. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?? Any siggestions would be greatly appreciated :)
