I have old fluid in my brain from a previous wreck. I am also pregnant but the fluid gives me horrible migraines and sometimes makes me go blind and numb in my arms and mouth. Should i see about getting it drained after I have my child?

In brief: Neurology consult

I am not sure regarding the theory of "old fluid inside your brain".
You should definitely have a neurology consult as you seem to have atypical symptoms which warrant quick attention.

In brief: Not the fluid

If you continue to have fluid either within the ventricular system or around the brain, it should not give you symptoms you describe.
What you are experiencing is called trauma Triggered migrain. You should consult a neurologist specializing in headaches for treatment.
