I get these 'auras' before a migraine and from talking to other people they're pretty common. I know a migraine's coming as I get a blind spot in one eye, it comes on really suddenly, a bit like when you've looked at the sun by mistake or have had a photo taken with a flash, then I get zigzag lines and, for some reason, yawn a lot. about 20 minutes later I get the headache.
I can't really comment on your symptoms as I'm not a doctor, but it sounds like your symptoms are pretty common. It helps if you can identify triggers, like stress, certain food, tiredness.
I'm surprised your eye doctors have never heard of these symptoms though.
