In twenty years i've spoken to more than my share of migraine suferers,and to this day never anyone who shares this strange symptom.I am a 32 yr. old male and had my first migraine at age 12.My migrains are sometimes refered to as "classic" migrains or "migrains with aura".Heres the wierd part...lets say I get a migraine today,the aura will start and be mostly in one eye,lets say the left eye.when my vision returns and the pain starts,it will be in my right eye or right side of my head/face.Then the next time I get a migraine,whether it's 2 weeks or two months later it will reverse.Aura in the right eye and pain in the left.This has been the case for twenty years and when I tell my doctors about it they look at me like i'm bannanas.If anyone shares these symtoms or has any info on this I would love to hear from you!

Dear herbertine and Hillbilly, Migraines frequently switch side, mine do not. Good luck, Bongo

Everyone's auras can be so different.  When I have a really bad one coming on, I smell oatmeal with brown sugar and maple.  So, no, I do not think you are weird.
