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 the pain and disability from arthritis get too much to bear, a person may decide to look for solutions. My husband is one such person who has just decided to do something about the pain which began eight years ago. His right wrist is severely afflicted with a "bone on bone" case of osteoarthritis. Being a right handed man, the pain started to interfere with daily activities like writing, eating and dressing years ago. But he is a very accepting man who decided to just live with it.

As long as he was careful, he got by just fine.
In the past year, another problem with the wrist started to compound the problem. Numbness started to creep into his thumb and half of the fingers. One day while hunting for pheasants, h...
Is Pseudotumor Cerebri ever associated with facial numbness and facial twitching? Also, how does a physician differentiate between Pseudotumor Cerebri and Malignant Hypertension since one of the major things that they both have in common is increase in blood pressure and increased cranial pressure?
I have recently been diagnosed with PTC and have been unable to find out if maybe this is why my face is numb and twitchy all the time. Recently, I have gone from it being only on the right side of my face to both sides and my eyes twitch at the same time and make it impossible to read, concentrate and at times even to stand up because it throws me off balance. It seems to twitch and go numb more right before and during my headaches. My doctor seemed to think that it might be stress but its freaking me out as it is getting more and more regular. I am currently taking Diamox 500mg 2x per day with an extra 250mg dosage...
