I suffer from Aura and Hemiplegic migraine...

It started when I was seven years old with an aura attack. I didn't know at the time what is was but, I remember as a Child,i saw this zigsag line, floating in front of my vision and it grow bigger all the time.
Then I became very ill, womiting and had bad headache, when laying in my bed.
Now i am nearly 60 years old and have several aura attacks per month!
I also have hemiplegic migraine and the attacks come nearly every half year!
I take medication Verapamil 40mg and it seems to have some improvment, thow the hemiplegic attacks are not so strong but, I know, the attacks my come strong again and one day it will become a stroke.
I did a migraine app calledAura Migraine on google play to show the World of my living hell.

I must tell you this:
My aura attacks last at least 35 minutes every time i got it and i really hate it.
I didnt find i way to shorten the aura but, once i was at my mother in law's home and get an aura attack.
I was Walking around in her livingroom,talking with a friend,
I told him,shit i have an aura attack.
After ten minutes, the aura had growed in to a middle aura.
I was talking to my friend and walked in to a ceiling lamp,with a hard dot, hurting myself in the head and,The aura dissapperad!!!
Strange as hell!!
For the first time in my Life, I breaked the aura attack in ten minutes!!!
Well,I can't knock myself in my head when I got new auras, for sure.
but what happened!!
Best regards
