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.

“Sciatica” is an old world term that refers to leg pain felt down the back of the thigh into the calf and foot. What about thigh pain? What about buttock pain?

With these newer terms, the antiquated word, “sciatica”, has no place in the modern world. Sally has been waking up with right ...
I was applying pressure this morning to something an had the sharpest pain shoot from the back to side side of the right side of my head. I stopped for a minute then continued what I was doing and it happened again. All I could think about was an Aneurysm. Could this be and what should I do I am scared? Joanne.
Statistically, it's unlikely to be an aneurysm, but you certainly don't want to find yourself on the wrong end of those statistics. Any unexplained head pain should be investigated. Please see your doctor as soon as possible.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
