Hi There, i also get the Migraine with Aura, actually i am have one right now just slowly ending, i didn't get too bad of a headache this time though, i woke up to it this morning and it was just the Aura ( i get the zig zags and partial blindness and blur, i also sometimes get screwed up speech where i can't even get my words out properly, and i always get the numbness in my hands, face, mouth, tongue etc, the first time ever got one almost 10 years ago, i ran into the ER and freaked out, i thought i was going blind lol (not funny but ya know), one of the docs took me into a dark room and gave me i think it was imitrex ( i hardly use those meds, makes me feel like i'm gonna have a heart attack, i actually use tylenol or advil, i take like 3) but anyhow, the doctor took me in the dark room and gave me that stuff and then diagnosed me with Aura Migraine (couldn't believe i was one of the 15% that get them) ick anyhow, he told me he used to suffer from them too and almost lost his medical career over it, but he was lucky!!!
Anyways, i have had probably about12-15 Aura migraine attacks in the past 10 years and i am 31 now. Today it was mostly the Aura with a mild headache ( hopefully it won't come on stronger today, i have to go shopping with my youngest daughter) anyhow, i wish you all much success and we all are able to rid this, we shouldn't have to live with this!!
