Yesterday I experienced my first migraine. Had auras, then the pain for a few hours, and have been wiped out since. Now the flashing lights/squiggly lines are back and the pain is returning.
My question: is this normal to have episodes over multiple days?
Also, since I've never had migraines before I am trying to understand what brought them on. I am 39. I was in a car accident a week ago - no serious injuries but it was jarring. Is it possible that the accident prompted them?
Thank you for your help.
