Prop migraines: Well both migraines and tia's (mini-strokes) can cause your weakness. If it's associated with migraines and given your age, i would guess it's likely from migraines but hard to be sure unless you have an MRI to rule out the mini-stroke. If this comes and goes with the migraine and you have a documented history of migraine, your neurologist may not need an mri.
