I was hospitalized a month or so ago do to "stroke like symptoms". I had all signs of a stroke, just no signs of a stroke in all the test they ran. They diagnosed me with Hemiplegic Migraine Headaches. My question is, has anyone here been diagnosed with this, and if so how do you help with the headaches when they are intense and you've had it for a week now?
I have migraines all the time and I don't think they have ever given it a name besides migraine. But I can't stand light, and sometimes I'm so "Off" you would think I was drunk, and I can have memory prob and something like fibro fog but 10 times as bad
I get Botox shots every three months for my migraines. It has been the only thing that helps. I react to most medications so Botox has been a life saver! When I do get a headache, I often have to take phenergan along with some type of pain med, non-narcotic. The best thing I have found over the 14 years I've had migraines, is finding my triggers and not doing what is causing them. I'm not familiar with your specific type of diagnosis so I'm not sure if it would work the same but it's worth a try! Having the symptoms of a stroke are crazy scary! I hope you find relief and a great treatment regimen.
The only medication I take is low dose Amitryptaline for my migraine. It I'd a wonder drug for me.
I was diagnosed with chronic migraines, never heard that other name before. I was prescribed Rizatriptan and they have helped me so much with my migraines. Lavender oil is good also i rub it across my forhead and near my nose. I found it to relax me. Hope this helps.
