I have had a migraine for 8 days now, with one half day break in the middle. just a few minutes ago, the right side of my face went numb, especially my eyelid. I have not taken anything but one single baby Asprin, so it's not due to medication. Should I be worried?View Thread
My grandmother and I have followed the same migraine symptom pattern. When we are young the pattern goes like this; first we get stupid, then haloing, then pain. The older you get, the less pain, until you no longer get pain at all, just phases of stupid, that seem exactly like dementia. When you reach the age of about 90 the phases of stupid just never end, and you get diagnosed with dementia. While I'm in the stupid phase, I get clumsy, dizzy, grasp for words, forget names, have longer reaction time, zone out, and forget what I have just walked into a room for. The longer my migraine lasts, the worse these become. I wish they would do a study regarding the relation of migraines and dementia.View Thread
