Roughly 10 months ago I had a migraine whilst in my final

Resolved Question:

Roughly 10 months ago I had a migraine whilst in my final stages of pregnancy. They admitted me on precaution but when testing me found left sided weakness, and also over exadurated reflexes.They ruled a stroke out at the time.Two weeks ago the same thing happened and again a stroke was ruled out.I saw my gp who said possible hemiplegic migraine and I've had a referral I'm waiting on now to neurology.My symptoms are: weakness, dizziness some times passing out, headache (not always) limbs loosing sensation, pins and needles in my arm and face, nausea, memory loss and also jumbling my words.This last attack the head aches come and gone but the other things have lasted. Since seeing my dr two days ago when my side is weak I'm struggling also with urinating like my bladder also stops working so to speak and I'm lethargic with bad memory.When I sit and think of my history, I've always had headaches on and off aswell as bouts of muscle weakness and tiredness constantly.Would this fit with their possible diagnosis? And also, seems as sumatriptan hasn't worked is their anything else they could be doing to make these current symptoms ease off as currently they aren't.
