I read about the symptoms of auras on here but I was wondering if there are other types of auras.  Yesterday, from the time I woke up (which was very early for me and I did have just a slight headache), I was so exhausted feeling and lethargic.  I swear my legs felt like they weighed 300 pounds each.  Every time I walked up stairs, it was like I was climbing Mt. Everest.  As the day progressed, the exhaustion and letheragy persisted and my head got worse.  By last night, headache was severe.  I had absolutely no reason to be tired yesterday (hadn't worked the previous few nights, etc.).  I also heard on the weather last night that the barometric pressure was rising and that we had a huge high pressure system sitting over the state of Georgia.  Has anyone ever experienced an aura that was just in how you feel instead of the lights, etc.?  I just think that this feeling has happened on several occassions prior to full blown migraines but can't say for sure.  I will pay more attention now.
Thanks for any help.

I suffer from silent migraines, tension migraines and Ocular migrarines. I get this exact same thing you described right after my visual auras and horrible migraine pain. I feel so much better that it nots just me that is experiencing this.

Migraine aura can indeed come in more forms than the visual. Aura can be experienced as numbness or tingling, lethargy and/or dizziness, speech or cognitive impairment, etc. The aura is mostly characterized by the fact that you're experiencing symptoms leading up to the onset of a migraine.
