my granddad told my uncle to walk off a fractured ankle because he wanted to finish his skiing holiday...he was an orthopeadic surgeon(Original post by abbii)
with NHS direct, whatever they tell you see a doctor as well
they told someone who had a heart attack that it was indigestion
they told someone to walk off a fractured ankle
its very hard to diagnose someone without actually seeing them
****, do I need to get this investigated? Watch

I have migraines - have had them for a while. Today, I had what I was dismissing as another migraine, but now I'm in a clearer state of mind, it was really very odd and I'm not sure it was a migraine at all.
- it happened at an unusual time - I usually get them in the evening (although not always), but this was at midday;
- I usually have very visual auras, but there was none of that. In fact, my only neurological disturbance was double vision in my left eye and word confusion;
- my head actually hurts. This may sound strange for a headache disorder, but I very rarely get an actual headache with it;
- I had moments where I think I was out of it. I was in the middle of watching TV, then next thing I know it's much darker outside and the plot's moved on;
- the left side of my body (same side that had the double vision) feels very weak - my grip in my left hand isn't as good, can't hold my left arm as steady and my left leg feels numb;
- my hands and feet keep on shaking ... and I'm not cold.
Do I need to get this checked out as something that isn't a migraine, or could I just be experiencing a different form of it?
