May not be migraine: Migraines can sometimes cause neurologic symptoms in other parts of the body that can mimic a mini-stroke (TIA). But it's important to rule out more dangerous causes like aneurysm or tumor. CT or MRI of the brain, and possibly a CTA or MRA to look for aneurysms, is probably needed. See a doctor as soon as possible.

See MD: Complex migraines can cause the head and numbness in your arm/legs. The bulging disc can cause the "tugging feeling in your heel" and burning leg pain. Sounds like you need to discuss this with your physician for management.

Age? meds? Need a lot more info to properly answer but you will need a CT or MRI of your brain to rule out a more significant problem than migraine headache. Get to your family doc and then if no answers, to Neurologist asap.

Complicated issue: Need a lot more info and proper Neuro exam to fully answer but you will need a CT or MRI of your brain to rule out a more significant problem than migraine headache. Get to your family doc 1st and then if no answers after testing, to Neurologist asap.
