Hello, I am new to the forum. I am a 22 year old female who has been suffering from migraines for about 10 years. I recently found that my migraines are hormonal, but will occasionally occur sporadically. I will typically have 2-3 per year. I consistently get my aura 30 minutes before my migraine starts, and I get the whole nausea/diarrhea/vomiting every time too.
Well yesterday, while I was at work (I'm a waitress) I started experience a very slight aura. At first my eyes couldn't focus and my right hand felt slightly weak. I thought it may be my typical aura and expected it to get worse, but it stayed the same for about 7 hours! I could see, but not well. Honestly, I felt very drunk - unable to focus my eyes, shaky, I dropped things left and right. After 7 hours or so, the feeling went away and I was extremely exhausted. Thank goodness I got to go home and rest, but this was the first time I have experienced such a feeling. Was this a silent migraine?
Any feedback would be great :) Thanks
