Hi for the last year i have been suffering with migraine aura, every colour of the spectrum zig zagging on both eyes, my speech goes funny, like im slurring and my face goes numb. My heart also races. It leaves me feeling spaced out for about three days, and i can barely string a sentance together. I have had four in the last month and two in two days. My doctor put me on beta blockers but they dont help. I had an mri last april, but rezults came back normal. Do i need to see a neurologist

yes you do

we need to see a neurologist to make sure this isn't a form of seizure
