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.

Try not to call it a cane. Instead, calling this assistive device a "walking stick" or even a "trekking stick" evokes more positive images of youth, vigor, and an active lifestyle. This handy object can assist you in easing many types of pain. All the way down the chain, from the low back to the feet, a walking stick can reduce the stress and strain that comes with everyday activities or a walk in the woods.
Researchers in Australia recently showed that the use of a cane reduced the load on the knee by 10%. By reducing knee joint stress, the pain, swelling, and stiffness is less likely to become debilitating. Knee arthritis plagues many people who line up for knee replacement surgery. That surgery can be postponed and activities can continue with a little help from a walking stick or two. That's right, two. Some of the most avid hikers in the world use two trekking sticks to help support their bodies over the uneven terrain. Not only does this technique reduce the load on ...
New evidence shows that special hands-on treatment given by trained physical therapists helps ease pain and stiffness in patients with knee osteoarthritis. The manual treatments used by the physical therapists in this study included hands-on tissue work, graded joint movements, and stretching. These treatments have been shown to calm pain and inflammation, help joints move better, and relax muscles. Eighty-three patients were randomly placed in either a treatment group or a control group. Both groups were given a survey about their pain. They were also tested to see how far they could walk in a six-minute period. Then the patients went to therapy two times each week for a total of four weeks. Along with manual therapies, the patients in the treatment group also did standard knee exercises in the clinic and at home. Participants in the control group were only given mock ultrasound treatments set at the lowest possible level, too low to really help their knee problem. This group was also...
