These startling, sometimes frightening head pains have been described in various ways: In the beginning, when I began having migraines, I suffered a sudden slash of pain, very intense and quick on the right side of my head. It started at one point and webbed out to what it felt like a inch in length. I had never felt this type of pain and it scared me. They are intense, sharp, stabbing pain about your skull, as if you were being stabbed with an ice pick. I was just wondering if anyone gets sudden pains in their heads. It can be in the front sometimes, or sometimes it's in my temple. It really varies. I was awakened at 3 a.m. by excruciating, stabbing pains on the top right front of my head, kind of behind the eye. lasted about 30 seconds. I get those types of stabbing pains too, I have no clue as to what is causing it. I get them all over my head. They can last for a few seconds to a few minutes. I started noticing them after my migraines started to get to ...
Imagine that after years of painful knee symptoms, you have a total knee replacement (TKR). Ahhh, relief at last! But within a couple of months, the knee starts making a loud "clunk" every time you straighten it from a fully bent position. The problem could be the patellar clunk syndrome. This syndrome occurs when a fibrous nodule develops on the back of the kneecap (patella). When the knee bends, this fibrous bump gets trapped within a notch in the surface of the thighbone (femur). (The bottom of the femur meets the top of the tibia in the lower leg to form the knee joint.) As the knee straightens, the bump moves out of the notch. Knee pain and a "crunching" sound occur as the patella moves against the femur. At the same time, a "clunk" is usually heard. Doctors think that two factors cause the patellar clunk syndrome: the design of the joint implant (on the femoral side) and the patient's knee-flexion angle. Generally, only patients with more than average knee flexion get this proble...
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.
Although the headache and many of the other sy...
