I am a 25 y/o female with history of depression, viral menningitis, gallbladder removal, then nothing until these symptoms started.
Ok, here goes symptoms:
Migraines started at 15 yo
Migraine, different pupil sizes, Numbness, tingly, "dead" arm, slurred speech, falling to the left while standing still, visual aura, having a vague short term memory, buzzing feeling/sound at bridge of nose and top of neck, "medicine head" detached feeling; all would come on suddenly at random times.
Went to see a neurologist October 2007, he put me on anti-seziure meds saying I was having seizures on the temporal lobes.
Got pregnant, went off the mess, I felt a little better, managable symptoms.
After pregnancy went back on anti-seizure meds for bi-polar 2 (lamictal) .
4 months after meds being regulated migraines came back with avengence, worse than labor pains.
Stroke-like symptoms came back stronger, and I've started doing things I completely do not remember (ie: making appropriate work phone calls).
Btw, ct scan came back clean in October of 2007
