    It started in 2006. I had my first TIA. They also found lesions on my brain. 2 months later, again another TIA. I've since then had 3 more, all showing more lesions with each scan done. I've lived with daily migraines the last 4 years now, with no relief except while I sleep. I've begun to notice swelling in my lower legs and feet when im on my feet just to cook a simple dinner or a drive somewhere. The lesions seem to develop after a really bad stay in bed all day type migraine. I've had multiple blood tests, MRIs, and recently a lumbar puncture to rule out MS. They have all come back normal. I live in pain daily, I've gotten no answer to what is causing this. Is there anybody that may have a clue?? Something I can take to the dr to check into??
