  • I am curious how accurate hemiplegic migraine testing is. Standardly they test for 3 genes. Familial Hemiplegic Migraine and Sporadic. If I'm correct it is CACNA1A, ATP1A2 and SCN1A. Does everyone with hemiplegic migraine test positive for these mutations and if not, do you know the percentage? Click here for answer

  • I experienced a headache followed by left sided numbness. I believe my doctor said I had hemiplegic migraine. During these episodes the left side of my body will feel like tiny pinpricks and go completely numb. When it gets really bad it spreads over to my right side and i cannot operate my car. When this happens I do not always get headaches. Is there any information you can give me? Click here for answer
