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.

It's a well-known fact that women athletes injure the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) of their knees more often than men. Many explanations have been suggested. Perhaps the training of men and women is different enough to increase risk for ACL injury in women. There are gender differences in hormone levels, knee structure, hip width, and the angles at which muscles attach around the knee. However, no single cause or combination of factors has been proven. One of the functions of the ACL is to keep the larger bone in the lower leg (tibia) from sliding forward of the upper leg bone (femur). This movement of the tibia at the knee is called tibial translation . The ACL keeps forward tibial translation in check. Contracting the muscles around the knee increases the stiffness of the knee. This also reduces forward tibial motion and offers additional protection to the ACL. Since scientists haven't been able to pin gender differences on anything within the joint, they decided to test the muscle...
There are many reasons why knee stiffness occurs after joint replacement. In this article, ways to predict and manage such a problem are reported. Computerized records of almost 10,000 patients were reviewed to provide this information. Stiffness was defined for this study as less than 90-degrees of knee flexion. Two groups of patients were compared. The first group had a total knee replacement (TKR) with stiffness afterwards. The second (control) group had a TKR without stiffness. Everything about these patients was compared. For example, age, race, sex, and body mass index were compared. Range of motion before the surgery was reported. Details of the operation such as length of time and blood loss were included. The authors report that more patients with stiff knees after TKR were younger than the control group patients. Women were affected more often than men. They had shorter patellar (kneecap) length and longer patellar tendon. These changes lead to a slightly different position of...
