Numbness in arm and mouth when I have a migraine. Also loss of vision in right eye before the migraine starts. Should I see a neurologist?

In brief: Yes

While these symptoms may happen with some migraines, these are not normal symptoms.
A neurologist can help to identify possible causes and the most appropriate treatments to help relieve your migraine and associated symptoms. Please follow up on this.

In brief: Depends

If you have never had a workup for this, the first place to start is with your primary care doc.
He/she can do a thorough evaluation and preliminary tests, inc.MRI scan of the head if needed. Based on those results, he/she may initiate treatment or refer to a neurologist. If you have not seen a doc about this and this just started you need to get seen urgently! No caffeine, drugs, alcohol!
