I am 5 months post partum. I have had migraines since I was 12. (I am 29) I take 100mg of amitriptlyn and 50mg topamax. I obviously couldn't take it while pregnant so I had to suffer for 9 months. I gave birth in May and started on a new birth control Sprintec.(started end of July.) (prior to pregnancy I took TRI-sprintec) In the begining of August I started to have episodes where I would get numb on my right side of my face, arm, fingers, get really weak, feel as if things are going in slow motion, and I can't talk. I have had 5 episodes since August. This past episode I went to the ER. They did a CT scan and did some blood work. Everything came back normal. I know something is wrong and am very scared for it to happen again. Could it be hormones, birth control, something else?? PLEASE HELP!!
