I get them maybe once a year. I don't know what happens to you by I can't stand light, feels like a vice inside my head, vomit and can't function
Just had the lady at my work go home twice this week with a migraine half way through her shift and drove home. That's a migraine I want.
Seriously, you've had aura and a migraine for two days? Is that normal?
I get aura for 45 minutes then it goes away and I get a migraine. If my aura lasted two days I think I'd go to the doctor to make sure something more serious isn't going on.
I used to get an ocular migraine a couple times a year.
When I finally asked my optometrist about the shimmering that started in the center of my vision, then slowly moved to the edge before disappearing over five minutes or so, I was surprised at his diagnosis of "migraine" because there was never any accompanying pain.
There must've been something magical about that doctor visit several years ago though because, although I received no treatment for it, I don't recall having another migraine since.
I started to get migraines at 39 yo-- 2 to 3 per week. Now I get maybe 4 per YEAR. Learn your triggers. They are different for everyone. It's not only the trigger but, the cumulative effect of multiple triggers. A piece of chocolate OK? A glass of red wine OK? Peanuts OK? Have all three together=migraine! Some triggers affect you with in 3 hours and some for up to 3 days. That makes identifying triggers VERY DIFFICULT. A blood test for food "sensitivities" was extremely helpful for me. One of my biggest triggers is dehydration. There are prescription drugs for prevention and ones to take during a migraine. If left untreated, a migraine usually lasts 3 days for me. Treated, pain etc. is knocked back by 90% in about an hour.
Luck to all of my fellow sufferers.
I feel ya. Been there, done that.
