Migraine And Memory Loss
Reflexes don't work,tingling,migraines,severe memory loss&pain,nightly low fevers,dark bruises etc!MRI&EEG neg!will neuro not help me after follow-up?
Sure neuro will help: Your neuro provider should be especially helpful with the migraines and and the tingling. Perhaps a treatment like amitriptyline would help. It is good at suppressing tingling, it is a class A migraine preventer, and sometimes. Perhaps your memory is connected. The night time fevers and bruising are not always related to neurology, and they may need to ask for some assistance regarding those. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I've started getting migraines, speech problems, and memory loss. I haven't slept well in months. Could it be sleep deprivation? How do I fix it?
Possibly: Sleep deprivation as a possible migraine trigger is a realistic concern. The broader and probably more impotant question is why aren't you sleeping well. That may be the cause of not just sleep deficit, but also the migraine and other issues you describe. See your physician. Maybe also a psychologist/psychiatrist. If you know why you aren't sleeping well, address that with them. Good luck. ...Read more
Topamax (topiramate) substitute for weekly migraines w/no weight gain&memory loss side effects?tylenol,NSAIDs&neurontin dont work.on trileptal,klon,&wellbutrin now

Migraine is an event triggered by activation of the trigeminal vascular system. There may or may not be a component of cephalgia. Now that I've given you some tasty tidbits of information we can talk about the overlap between migraine and seizures. Its a lengthy discussion. ...Read more
