Hi, I am 24 years old and have alway been a very active energetic girl in school and in life. I have suffered from extremely bad migraines since I was 11. But, have dealt with them through medication . Yet for the past month I have been experiencing a very heavy head feeling and numbness throughout diffrent parts of my body. My neck is very stiff and I am always tired and feeling unalert but I do not have a fever. I had an MRI last year that was normal and blood work recently that showed normal white blood cells f and normal bloodwork so there wasnt signs of infection. So doctors believe it is from migraines that I am feeling this way suddenly. I feel like I have a flu in my head and neck with some numbness and I have no appetite, also vomiting frequently but do not have a sore throat or cough. I am not sure if i need a spinal tap but I feel there is something wrong. My family is very concerned because the doctors are not doing much but keeping me on my migraine medication. If you have any insight please let me know. Thankyou
