I have been getting frequent ocular migraines, and numbness and tingling in my left arm. Any idea what this could be?

Migraines: The numbness in the left arm is concerning. If you are correct that your symptoms are ocular migraines, then the numbness is most likely a variant form of the migraine. If the same visual symptoms happen in the same sequence with numbness in the arm, then it is most likely ocular migraine with variant, if severe headache then classic migraine. See my response on triggers for migraines.

Amitriptyline safe and effective for preventing hemiplegic migraines? I get slight numbness and tingling left side and headaches. Past 2yrs on and off

Amitriptyline safe and effective for preventing hemiplegic migraines? I get slight numbness and tingling left side and headaches. Past 2yrs on and off

Comments: Truthfully, due to bad anticholinergic side effects, I no longer use amitryptyline in any of my patients. Would prefer OTC items, such as riboflavin, butterbur, CoQ-10 magnesium or feverfew. Most neurologists can help with this. If it must be prescription, choose Depakote or Topamax (topiramate). Botox, maybe?

Severe upper back/neck pain causing migraines & face numbness/tingling - slight movement dysfunction. Getting MRI n 2 days. What could be causing this?

Multiple etiologies: It is possible that you have a problem at the junction of your brainstem and cervical spinal cord--a tumor, infection, etc. You could also be having two separate problems--one in the spine and one in the brain. Or you could be having a multifocal problem, such as ms. These are all possibilities--see what the MRI shows.

My PFO was closed 10/15/14.I now have more migraines, tingling/numbness in my hand and heart flutters when on my back. Is this normal? I take plavix (clopidogrel)

Not related: The symptoms you mention are not the result of your heart surgery!! They are also not related to the Plavix (clopidogrel) you are taking to keep clots away from the surgical site! Speak with your general medicine health care provider about your increased headaches and other symptoms! Hope this helps Dr Z

Many things: While these symptoms are usually self limited and inconsequential, if these persist more than a week or so, with your young age, see your family md for evaluation. It would be best to figure it out early rather than late. Whether these are symptoms from the brain, spinal cord, or peripheral nerves, you will need some workup if they don't go away.

What to do if I have numbness and tingling after epidural?

What to do: An epidural should cause numbness but this should wear off as the medicine is metabolized. If the symptoms last longer than 24 hours, inform your anesthesiologist, they may want for you to undergo studies or a consultation with another medical provider.
