Difference between migraine symptoms and TIA or stroke symptoms

Migraine FAQs: How do symptoms of migraine differ from those of a TIA (mini stroke) or stroke?

The symptoms of migraine, a mini stroke and a stroke are very similar.

They all can cause changes in vision, however, in migraine with aura, the visual disturbances are dynamic and keep moving.

Whereas with TIA or stroke, the vision problems tend to stay still, or remain static. Also, the migraine with aura symptoms typically come on gradually.

With a stroke or TIA, the keyword is “sudden,” because the symptoms feel like they appear quickly.
