Hello all! This is the first time I have been on this forum. I am usually on Ulcerative colitis forum. But I have a new issue with Migraines. It started in late May or early June. I took my son to school an then came home. I was feeling great the sun was out it was warm and a great morning. But as soon as I unlocked my door to the house I fell to my knees in the worst pain I have ever felt. (. I have UC and had a gall bladder rupture and a hysterectomy so I do know pain). I was in bed for 3 day unable to move or be in light or noise. Had NO pain meds at all. It was the weekend so I had no doctor either. Anyway on Monday I went to the doctor and told him what happened he sent me for ex rays and ct scans. All came back clear. He put me on Axert and 90 mg of codeine when needed.
I have had a med. strength head ache everyday since. I go to the dr every month for pain meds. They do help some what depending on the severity of my pain. I have done the food triggers and so far cheese is the only trigger besides cheap perfumes and scents. Light does bother me a little.
So here are a few questions to those of you who have had migraines for a while.
1). When you get auras do you get a head ache right away? It takes me anywhere from 1 second to 48 hours for me. Or does it take a while to start?
2). Has an aura made you loose your vision for any length of time? I lost vision in both eyes at the same time and only after 30 sec my vision cam back in my right eye but it took 45 mins to get it back in my left eye. And then had the second worst pain migraine.
How long do auras last? Do the hurt?
3). What kind of auras do people have. I have had 3 different kinds and just wondering if I am having others I don't know about.
And my last question.
4). Does the pain go in one spot or different areas? My pain almost always on the left. But if it starts on the right I am down for the count for 2 or 3 days.
Thank you so much for reading this. I just wanted to talk to people that deal with this on a daily/ weekly basis. None of family or friends have migraines on an ongoing basis. Thanks again and I hope you all have a great day!

My auras can last hours. Sometimes the migraine comes on right away but usually there is a bit of time between the aura and the migraine. I wouldn't say I feel okay when I have the aura, I feel like my head is cloudy and almost vibrating, if a turn my eyes quickly, it's uncomfortable. I've never had issues with my vision. It's so hard to describe what it's like... I don't think the aura hurts, it's just a downer to get it because you know you don't feel right, and every single time, I think "is this an aura?" and than I convince myself it's not but the migraine always follows. Mine are never left or right, it's always the full area.
