What causes complete numbness in the arm,headache and weakness?

I was diagnosed with SVT in may 2010 after I had my 2nd child. I have since had tests done and they say the heart is ok. Recently I have had chest tightness, headaches, tingling numbing in the arm, hand, leg & feet. I had a MRI o brain and blood work and everything is commin out normal. I was released from hospital yesterday with a diagnosis of Mirgraine aura. Today i wake up my arm is completly numb and i have a very bad headace, weak and not hungary. What could this be?

Hi,

First of all, you should know the oral contraceptive pills have some effects such as: thrombosis and hypertension. So, you should stop them and ask a gynecologist for help.

Second you should do more investigations on your heart such as:an ECG with effort and an ECHO on your heart to assess your heart condition. Third,you should change your lifestyle choice, for example, you should stop eating fat-rich diet, decrease salt intake and avoid drinking and smoking. If you were overweight, you should decrease your weight by going on diet.

Finally, you should take Aspirin 160 mg twice per day after meals to avoid thrombosis, Vitamin B complex once per day after lunch and Benfotiamine 40 mg twice per day after meals. Sometimes, the symptoms of migraine could be mistaken with the symptoms of Transient Ischemic Attack.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Mustafa, Neurologist
