FROM OUR EXPERTS
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.

Anyone who experiences numbness/tingling on one side, then blurred vision, lasting a few minutes? My migraines returned at age 58 after a 15-year welcome respite (I am now 60). I experience the aura (zig-zag patterns), then the headache, sometimes with temporary tingling in hands and face, sometimes without, before the headache begins. Recently, I had two instances with numbness in my right hand that begins with the little finger and moves to the thumb, then to the face. This progression lasts about 10 minutes. Recently, I also experienced what felt like my eyes crossing (they weren't crossed, my husband said), which lasted a few seconds, but was pretty frightening. These migraines are so different from the ones I had from age 6-35 that I am concerned they might be some else, like MS. Any thoughts about this pattern would be appreciated. Thank you, Ice-Dancer.

Most Americans do not get enough sleep each night. Medical experts say that you should get between 7 and 8 hours of sleep, but recent statistics revealed that many people are getting less than 5 to 6 hours. If you are not getting enough sleep, it can have adverse affects on your overall health. For example, it may cause unwanted weight gain, or a constant feeling of sluggishness throughout the day. People use many excuses for not getting to bed at a decent time. “I have to clean the house, and nighttime is the only time I can get everything done;” or “I love watching late night television.” No matter what excuse you are using, your lack of a good night’s sleep can be a problem. Some people, however, bring their stress problems into the bedroom, and that can have disastrous results. Not only will stress affect your sex life, it will also affect your ability to get the rest you need. No matter what has cau...
