Hemiplegic Migraines

November 7, 2013

A man from Wales has spoken out about his rare medical condition which causes him to collapse if he smells Chanel No 5 perfume.

Glynn Parry suffers from hemiplegic migraines – a genetic condition which causes one hemisphere of his brain to temporarily shut down leading to paralysis.

The father of three told BBC Radio 5 live’s Drive: “A burning pain occurs in the right side of my brain followed by gradual paralysis… and I have to be rolled into the recovery position.”

“I have two to three attacks a week… It’s a difficult thing to live with and it impacts on every aspect of my life.”
