I have migraines that cause my face to go numb, both my legs to go weak and get pins and needles and burning sensations. I can have altered sensation in both my feet and legs at the same time, this usually only lasts for short periods of time but happens on and off with twitching in the numb areas. Sometimes this can make it difficult to walk. I can also get a tingling tongue. I also sometimes get stabbing eye pain. I never feel sick or light sensitive but I have stabbing like pains in my head, like an electrical bolt. I have had repeat brain MRI on a T3 machine which have been normal. I never usually get severe headache just more weird sensations in my head.
Can migraine cause both legs to go numb at the same time? Or both arms at the same time? I was told migraine is only one sided? I have had spinal MRI and this is normal too.
Thank you for any info. Cheers, Eleanor.

When all the weight in the world rests on your shoulders, it is very common to experience neck pain. Instead of trying to power through your day with handfuls of pills and a whole lot of misery, a few simple remedies can help you solve your own neck pain.
Chin Tucks : One of the most common reasons to experience neck pain is from the small joints (facet joints) in the back of the neck become inflamed and painful. The reason these joints are under so much stress is the fact that your chin tends to drift up and away from your chest. As it does so, the back of the neck gets pinched in a vise grip. Look in the mirror and notice what happens to your neck with certain chin positions. Now, tuck your chin towards your chest without flexing the entire neck. That chin tuck maneuver helps to stretch out the back of your neck and relieve pressure off the sensitive joints. This can be done while standing, sitting or even lying in bed. If you feel a “pop,” that’s okay becaus...
Definition Volkmann's contracture is a deformity of the hand, fingers, and wrist caused by injury to the muscles of the forearm. See also: Compartment syndrome Alternative Names Ischemic contracture Causes, incidence, and risk factors Volkmann's contracture occurs when there is a lack of blood flow (ischemia) to the forearm. This usually occurs when there is increased pressure due to swelling, a condition called compartment syndrome. Trauma to the arm, including a crush injury or fracture, can lead to swelling that presses on blood vessels and can decrease blood flow to the arm. A prolonged decrease in blood flow will injure the nerves and muscles, causing them to become stiff (scarred) and shortened. When the muscle shortens, it pulls on the joint at the end of the muscle just as it would if it were normally contracted. But because it is stiff, the joint remains bent and cannot straighten. This condition is called a contracture. In Volkmann's contracture, the muscles of the forearm are severe...
