Four years ago this month I woke up with a migraine. This was the first migraine I had ever experienced. The next day I woke up and was very weak, I wasn't even able to ring out a wash rag. My hands felt numb and were tingling. The next day I had numbness and tingling in my feet and it eventually went up to my knees by the end of the day. I went to the doctor and throughout several months I recieved several tests. My main complaints were: numbness and tingling in my hands and legs (from my knees down), inability to read longer than 5 minutes (my eyes started to jump around the page), a taser-like sensation in my legs (random), and weakness. My hands and legs have pins and needles like feeling. The odd part about it is that I only experience these symptoms around the cold months, November to March. I have had several tests done including: lab work for MS and RA, spinal tap, MRI's of my brain and spine, and an emg. Everything has come back normal except my ANA titer being 1:40 and speckled. The first time I experienced these symptoms I had to use a cane (for 2 months) to keep my balance. I am 25 years old. Since this I still have migraines but now am on Imitrex to control them. These symptoms take over my body. Please help!
