Aura Won’t Go Away - 8 Days Now.

Hi, I am new to this forum. I am 38 years old and for the last 8 days, I have had an aura in my lower right eye. It comes and goes, light affects it, making it worse. I’ve had a headache everyday and bad neck ache. Pain killers take the headache away but the aura stays. The aura has not affected my vision, I can still see but when the aura is there I see it swirling and zigzagging in the lower portion of my vision. I’ve had my eyes checked, all was fine apart from a small pale scar patch in my right eye. I am short-sighted and wear glasses, and I’ve noticed a few more floaters in my ear than normal. Has anyone had any experience of ongoing aura? I am so worried that something bad is going on. I am booked to see a neurologist on Monday.

  1. Hi Salz, thank you for reaching out! I hear how scary and disconcerting your persistent aura symptoms are feeling for you. You are not alone experiencing an ongoing aura. I thought this other discussion on the forum from a couple years ago might resonate with you:

    We also have several articles and other forum discussions that mention persistent aura that you may want to peruse:

    I'm glad you are seeing a neurologist today! What was her/his evaluation? Please keep us posted on how you are managing. Wishing you a gentle day. ~Allyson (Migraine.com team)
