Dr. Bernstein of The Women's Headache Center explains how a woman can tell if she is having a migraine and not a stroke.

Dr. Bernstein:
Well, that is the thing, if you ever have a question, the best thing to do: call your doctor and go to the emergency room. Do not ever wait. Things that would make me very concerned would be if you develop numbness and tingling on half of your body, if you got weak on half of your body, if you lost your vision and it did not come back. Sometimes people have visual symptoms as part of their migraine, but the first time that happens, you want a doctor to check you out.
