It happened again!
My body seemed to be having a typical hemiplegic migraine. Lost left leg function,then left arm, then left side of face drooped but I took Ubrelvy and it clears this in about a half an hour. It didn’t. I took a second one. It didn’t work. My husband and I had an agreement to go to the hospital if this ever happened like this cuz it never had. We were concerned cuz my neuro had said it looks just like a stroke and you’re betting it’s not and usually you’re right but 1 in a 100 times? Maybe it is. When we go to the hospital, they saw me and called a stroke code immediately and this time I really wasn’t sure what was going on. But, thankfully, it wasn’t a stroke. They gave me fluids and migraine meds and a few hours later, I started getting strength back in my hand and my face started to come around. They wanted to keep me there but I was on the road to well and they didn’t have any other tests to run. They were just concerned about the fact that I couldn’t walk but that is not an uncommon issue for me with all the other conditions I deal with like myasthenia gravis and POTS. I go through all kinds of stuff ALL the time, so I went home. Crazy day…. #HemiplegicMigraine #ChronicMigraineSyndrome #ChronicIllness #Stroke
