Bad headache, disturbed sleep followed by mini seizures with episode of face twitching, leg tremors, diagnosed as migraine. Is it right?

Hello My name is Zak Born, I am 16 years old and i suffer from bad headaches , but these headaches do not feel normal. they either keep me from falling asleep at night or wake me up after a few short hours of being asleep i keep having mini seizures and i like to call them, and my limbs move on there own sometimes as well as my face like to twitch a lot and i say words that i did not even know i was going to say. Normally i would go to my GP but i have been to her before and she did not listen to me and just told me is was migraines and i was not satisfied with her diagnosis because i thinks there is more to this condition of mine then meets the eye so i have had these headaches for three years nearly since i was 14 years old so my question is this. I have told you everything i know so can leave it up to you, What is wrong with me do you think? Thank You For Your Time Zak Born

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms and appreciate the details provided.

I agree that you have migraine, as severe headaches are part of that.

However, in addition, we need to exclude seizures such as myoclonic epilepsy, which can cause jerks of arms or leg.

You need to be seen by a neurologist. In addition, MRI of brain and EEG may be required to make a final diagnosis.

I hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
Best wishes,
