I have had migraines since I was pregnant with my second child. They are usually triggered by aged cheese , chocolate, certain spices and cashews in particular. They are also triggered by extreme emotional distress. I have an aura that is particular to me approximately five minutes before they begin. It is like a bright flash then all color disappears from whatever I am viewing at the time - like a black and white color book page. This happens 2-3 time prior to the headache.

Hand tremors and loss of fine motor skills
My neurologist put me on meds. I felt shocked, and just sat there as the doctor talked to my daughter-in-law.
This on top of my physical handicaps, nodules found in my lungs and the tremors ...
