Migraines With Numbness And Tingling
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.

Upper neck/back pain for 5yrs & migraines 10+ yrs. Back is hurting worse daily causing severe migraines + numbness/tingling on left side of face.
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)
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
