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 more

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.

Substitutes for topamax (topiramate) could be propranolol, magnesium, or valproate perhaps. Normally wellbutrin and propranolol are not used together, in case the mood worsens. Why are you using trileptal? Your side effects may occur due to medicine interactions. ...Read more

How do doctors tell the difference between migraines and simple partial seizures (seizures without memory loss)?

How do doctors tell the difference between migraines and simple partial seizures (seizures without memory loss)?

Simple partial: seizures are defined by lack of alteration of consciousness not by the absence of memory loss and they run the gamut.

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
