Q: do migraines cause hand tremors and tingling in the face?

I am so exhausted all of the time and feel unbalanced. I also have excrutiating pain in my head after an orgasm?  I have swelling in my legs and ankles and chest pressure when I have a migraine. Also my BP shoots up. Is all of this normal for migraines? Thank you.

Hi misunderstood,


Hand tremors and tingling in the face, and an increase of blood pressure may occur with a Migraine attack. Orgasm, Migraines, and Headaches will hopefully explain what you need to know about orgasm and Migraine, if not, please ask again.


Swelling in your legs, ankles and chest pressure are not normal symptoms of a Migraine. A call to your doctor is in order for an exam to rule out any other conditions and to make sure you check out ok. Please give him a call and let us know how you make out, ok?


Good luck

Yes, I've had these symptoms preceding migraine attaacks. Sometimes one side of my body will experience a tingling/rush feeling. Sometimes I shake. These happen with our without aura. Sometimes I'll have a panic attack type feeling.

Pamelor and Toprol have helped. Most of my migraines are tirggered by my menstrual cycles, sometimes even during ovulation.

Or, pulsating lights for a long time, barametric changes....etc.

good luck!
