I had what doctors said was a complex migraine while i was a patient at my local hospital. This headache caused me to have complete stroke symptoms. I was completely paralyzed on my right side for two days. I noticed what happened after waking up from a nap.
My question is, does this happen very often and what are chances it will happen again? I had not had a migraine for at least 2 years. I would appreciate any information you can provide. Thank you for your time. I used to be an abused wife, could this have anything to do with these headaches?
Migraines can return at any time in your lifetime depending on levels of stress, hormones or other factors. If you were abused for some time I will assume you suffered some head injuries which would also increase your risk for headache.
Whether a complex migraine will return again or not is unknown. Chances are it won't but regular migraines could.
