    Literally felt like u were taking to me directly. I have over 30 illnessess that 8 have gained in the last 8yrs because the gp’s dont have the time to know u. Ive been given prescription after prescription for an illness I dont have diabetes because it also has said to work for a skin condition or an epileptic medication given to me to pain. I am researching and fighting for my own health now. I have a very complicated medical history due to missed diagnosis. I had my first episode of paralysis and no speech on the 17th sept 20. The day after my 36th birthday!

    One of these bad boys sent me to the ER, thought I was having a mild stroke. So now here I am doing a little research.

    You are so correct!! Here’s my issue: Smells trigger terrible migraines with auroas such as physical things…. Left eye gets quite larger, facial pulling, see brighter colors, numbness, lose control, can’t thing of right words to say, and of course severe pain ..ONE SIDED. Have had no strokes but have had brain bleeds during migraines which left lesions. The sensitivity to smells and migraines started 25 years ago after a terrible reaction to anesthesia. Immediate symptoms started. But u are right about vertebrate. Although this was not initial cause…. Due to me holding my head and neck a certain way for 25 yrs to relieve pain on nerves it has caused bulging disks in c1 thru c4 which made it worse over time. Tried to physically adapt to it yet body changes made it worse because no doctor wanted to treat causes but only symptoms. Pharmaceutical $$ rebates have driven treatment for symptoms versus source treatments.

    FHM – YUP mother’s family all had it. Yet the neurologist I went to asks me I’ve had a test…had it since I was 12. It’s very hard dealing with it ALL my life.

    I’ve had hemis for quite some time but just got my first lower occipital nerve block and it’s the first time I’ve been neck and shoulder pain-free in over a decade. What treatments are options for cervical involvement? Would it be physical therapy and nerve blocks/steroids/botox?
