numbness in left cheek and lips

been seizure free since my 2nd ones 15 years ago
but i have been getting a tinglying and numbness with pain in the side of my head and face left side.
everyone assured me it was not a seizure but i convinved myself for 4 months that one was coming and never did.. so bad that i gave myself full on panic attacks
so my DR told me today that its actually migraines heres the discription
my dr actually wants me to stop taking dilantin but to scared to stop

Migraine sufferers may experience:

Numb fingers
Numb face
Arm numbness
Head numbness
Numbness in the lips, tongue or legs
Weakness in limbs
Numbness on one side of the body


would you all argree?
so i can stop my worrying and you all think its true im pretty safe after 15 years that im not having a grand maul when my face is numb

also had blood work and catscan all turned out good...
have always suffered from migraines but never the numbness and tinglying

AND PLEASE NOBODY REPLY ITS A STROKE...
HAD CATSCANS AND MRIS
NO STROKE OR TUMORS OR BLEEDING
AND BLOOD PRESSURE FINE

BEEN TO DR 4 TIMES AND ER 8 TIMES
