No experience of this, to be honest (my migraines aren't hemiplegic).

I'm sorry to hear things are so bad. xxx

sorry that doesn't make a lot of sense above, apologies. I have sporadic hemiplegic migraine which has caused long periods where I have had no use of one side of my body and sometimes it affects both sides of my body and renders me bedbound, when I wrote that I was in predrome and hadn't realised it and am currently in a nursing home while they sort things out for me better.

the question above has actually been answered in real life as the occupational therapist has given me a leg lifter, kitchen trolley for moving food around and next week will be delivering a hoist and a hospital bed to my home, I have a commode in my bedroom as cant always make it to bathroom is there anything else anyone can suggest that has been helpful to them when they are affected with hemiplegic migraine
