Does a migraine cause joint pain and problems with limbs on one side of your body? Example, I seem to have extreme joint pain in my knee, elbow and shoulder and also lack of hand eye coordination with just one side. Thanks, Sandy.
Migraines can cause joint pain, though it's usually not severe. Lack of hand and eye coordination during a Migraine isn't unusual, but it should resolve when the Migraine ends. Best to check these issues with your doctor.
