FROM OUR EXPERTS
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.

You can make your own heating pack by either wetting a washcloth or towel and microwaving it, or putting rice in a tube sock and microwaving that....
