12/3/07 #5 - Headache and tingling one week after ER?

Ask the Clinician Health Pro
  • Full Question:
    Had a bad attack about one week ago and went to ER for meds. Since then I still have tingling in right arm and left sided headache but not as bad as a migraine. When will these symptoms let up and is there anything I can take for them? Is this called postdrome? Mike.





    Dear Mike;


    The headache of a Migraine doesn't have to be severe. If you're still in pain, you're probably still in the headache phase, not the postdrome, and need to be calling your doctor. For more information on the phases of a Migraine, see Anatomy of a Migraine. Please do call your doctor?


    Good luck,
