If you or a loved one are affected by Hemiplegic Migraine, please take a moment to complete this survey: Hemiplegic Migraine Foundation: Feasibility Study. The topic of the survey is how and where you get information about Hemiplegic Migraine.

According to the Hemiplegic Migraine Foundation, Hemiplegic Migraine is migraine with aura accompanied by motor weakness. "Symptoms can include visual disturbances, sensory loss, weakness to paralysis on one-side of the body, confusion, speech difficulty, impaired consciousness, coma, memory loss, as well as several other symptoms."

The results of the study will help The Hemiplegic Migraine Foundation determine whether a website and nonprofit for Hemiplegic Migraine are needed and, if so, what services and programs are needed. Thanks for helping this worthwhile cause!

Thanks to Tonya Mork at My Life Behind Walls for the heads up about this survey!
