I have a similar problem..aura with no headaches. I haven't been experiencing them in that quantity. Only about 10 times in my whole life...(starting about 5 years ago). They always seem to occur right after times of stress. I get dizzy, and can't really tell what's going on.

I'm going to a neurologist in a couple weeks. I'll let you know what he says.

I hope you've been able to pinpoint the cause of your problems. I read somewhere that allergies can trigger these types of things. Also that sometimes people with migraines start getting what you have....do either of your parents/aunts/uncles/bro/sis get migraines?

There is so much info on the web...just google "auras without headache", that's how I came to your post!

Please check out those links...the second one is to a forum where someone experienced something similar to you!

Good luck

I've had the same aura headaches.  No one can give me a straight answer why they happen (my physician, neurologist, cardiologist).  The doctor suggested that maybe it had something to do with low blood sugar.  They seemed to always occur just before lunchtime.  I would feel spacey and dizzy, and then I would see flashes of light out of my left eye.  Slowly my vision would be greatly affected--seeing everything double.  There episodes would last only 20 minutes from start to finish and then just disappear.  Within the last 8 years, I've had a total of perhaps 10 episodes.  Twice I've been able to "talk" myself out of it.  I'll have you know I'm not on any medication.  The doctor once suggested that I take one ibuprofin/day.  Tried it and still got them.  My auras, I believe, are brought on by stress, over-exercising, and low blood sugar.   
 
It's comforting to see from this forum that there are other people, like me that are experiencing these same freaky aura migraines.

Hi! Ive had the same. Now I do suffer both sorts, with pain, and without.
This might interest you. The last time that I had a migrane, no pain, with aura (for me it is like a prism, in a crescent shape, starting with one eye, then the other. I have to take 2 paracetamol and cool down, was when I came out of recovery from an emergency c-section in september. Iwas fine after the procedure for 1hour, then when I was being wheeled to my room, it started when I got too hot. It could have been stress induced???
Wierd though. What I was told, is that it is like a mini-stroke. The blood is constricted and migrane drugs usually relieve this....what do you think?
Good luck to you all!
 
Concerning low blood sugar.....this is a possibility...I hadnt eaten for two days, being in labour...also was anaemic...ah well! beginning to feel like a hypocondriac, so many things wrong with me!!!!LOL
