I had a Migraine this morning, when i went to stand up i lost all control of my right side including my face, it was like my right side had died! it only laster a few seconds but it worried me, i thought i had had a stroke! Migraines have never done that before, could there be some other problem i don't know about? please advise me, i am scared of it happening again. Thank you

You should report this to your doctor as soon as possible. This could be several things. One possibility is that this is a migraine variant (hemiplegic migraine) which is characterized by transient hemiplegia. Another possibility is this is a transient ischemic attack and requires investigation to make sure you are not at risk of stroke.
