We all are very confused, even my docs says I am a puzzle.



Hi Pam,

Yes you sound like complex or complicated migraine. But more information is needed..how old are you? Any history of smoking? Any visual symptoms before/during/after a migraine?

Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome comes to mind, but without more information, it could be something different. If you could reply with a little more info, maybe I could answer.
