I have a problem with complex migraines. Last year, I had some sort of migraine like episode that put me in the hospital for two days. Its been over a year since I had one until this last weekend. When I get them my right arm goes numb, then my tongue, then I become completely incoherent. Once my coherency comes back, I feel excruciating pain, I start breathing very heavily, and my heart rate goes through the ruff. This usually lasts for a period of 3-5 hours. I typically feel an aftermath of headache, soar muscles, and sometimes dizziness the next day. I've been trying to find out what triggers them. I used to think that sodium based nitrates (food preservatives) and artificial sugars (nerve toxins) used to be the root cause but I've been staying away from everything bad lately and nothing in my recent diet has changed. Does anyone else get migraines and know what triggers them? Maybe we can develop a pattern.
