I was diagnosed with migraines at 14, so 12 years now, but today was my first time I've ever experienced aura (that I know of). I was shopping and all of a sudden my left eye became very blurry. It wa like I was wearing bifocals. There was a distinct line in the middle of my field of vision only in my left eye. Under the line everything was blurry. I became very dizzy right awa, but I was able to close my left eye for a couple minutes until the dizziness passed.. I was only 5 min from home so luckily I was able to get home before the pain set in. 30 min after the visual disturbance began, the full migraine pain set in and by that point I always have to keep my eyes closed since I'm so sensitive to light.

I have to say that was extremely unnerving since I've never experienced that before. Usually my migraines jut hit me without warning. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this before?

Diagnosis so far: unknown bacterial infection (doc thinks at least 5 years, as long as I've been in pain), daily fevers, night sweats, constant joint and muscle pain, migraines, herniated disc C4-5

Right now I'm just trying to find a better way to deal with the everyday struggle, trying to stay positive :)
