    Acute Confusional Migraines

    I was admitted to the hospital in October with stroke like symptoms, was diagnosed with ACM. I have had migraines with aura's for at least 18 years. I had episodes where I just blanked out and couldn't think, became very confused. Since then I am having flashbacks of things that happened in the past, not traumatic, just thing such as I will see houses on a street that I used to travel down to go to a girlfriends grandmothers house. Things I couldn't remember if I tried. I probably have 10-15 of these per day. It is really freaking me out. I am so afraid there is something serious wrong with my mind. I have had the episodes of confusion probably 6 or 7 times in my life, dating back to about 16 years ago. The only constants I can think of are the migraines, diet soda's and hormone imbalance. Any ideas what could be causing the flashbacks?
