Happy to assist:
Most auras are visual and are described as bright shimmering lights around objects or at the edges of the field of vision (called scintillating scotomas) or zigzag lines, wavy images, or hallucinations. Others experience temporary vision loss.
Nonvisual auras include motor weakness, speech or language abnormalities, dizziness, vertigo, and tingling or numbness (parasthesia) of the face, tongue, or extremities.
Thank you so much for clearing that up for me. I have been having migraines for over 14 years now and in the past few weeks they have been VERY bad. I DO experience some of the symptoms you mentioned such as the vision loss or seeing the lights. I have never experienced the weakness though. I am just so sick and tired of having a headache almost every day of my life ya know?
Thank you so much for the information !!!
You're welcome, Tami. I've been suffering with them for over 20 years myself -- and they've changed over time... and no two are exactly alike either! There's always a new twist!!
I hope that you've been evaluated by a neurologist. Folks who suffer from migraines with aura are more prone to stroke and TIAs!
