Headache & Pain
Hemiplegic migraine is characterized by migraine with aura including motor weakness. Recurrent coma, encephalitis, or cerebellar ataxia in a patient with a family history of migraine and cerebellar ataxia could be the presenting symptoms of familial hemiplegic migraine. Attacks may be provoked by emotional stress, mild head trauma, angiography, or exertion. Most hemiplegic patients recover completely between attacks, but permanent sequelae have been reported.
