Learning The Symptoms of FHM and SHM -
FHM and SHM have been found to have common symptoms, which will differ among different Migraineurs. The difference between these two is that FHM can be traced back in the family history and has been linked to mutations of specific genes on 1 and 19 chromosomes whereas SHM is FHM without the familial connection and without that particular genetic mutation.
Some symptoms of Hemiplegic Migraine are episodes of prolonged aura that continue for several days or weeks, hemiplegia that is paralysis on one side of the body and fever. Meningismus that is symptoms of meningitis without the actual illness and accompanying inflammation is also one of the observed symptoms. Impaired consciousness ranging from confusion to profound coma, headache, which may or may not begin before the hemiplegia, Ataxia (defective muscle coordination are some other very serious symptoms. One may also suffer from Nausea and/or vomiting, Phonophobia and/or photophobia.

It is absolutely necessary for those who suffer from Hemiplegic Migraines absolutely educate themselves about their disease and treatment.
