I'm wondering whether this is just another way in which I'm unusual!
My first and, just yesterday, my latest experience of silent migraine auras, along with a number in between, have happened while in bed when the classic zigzag near circle of yellow-green light with a partly greyed out centre appears as a dot and slowly expands until it's out of sight and the greyness dissipates after some 15 minutes. I'm sure very many of you have seen this but how normal is it that I experience the start of the event in a dream and it continues after I wake? It was rather alarming the first time; in the dream I was mystified by the light which I took to be a real object floating in the huge cathedral-like building I was in, but to find it in my bedroom once I awoke...! Yesterday I was apologising to the people in the dream that I couldn't do whatever I was supposed to be doing as I couldn't see properly so it must have progressed some way before I woke. Friends say I dream the whole experience and a doctor I mentioned it too while seeing him about something entirely unrelated thought it unusual as he thought such episodes were triggered by activity and unlikely to happen while asleep. I'm lucky that they don't happen often - there was a spell of a few months when they were quite regular, mostly during the day though only once under 'stressful' circumstances that could be taken as a trigger, but this was the first for some months [coincidentally, I'm sure, the morning after I had my first covid jab...] - and I've never had any symptoms alongside the aura, not even the slightest headache. So may I ask, how many of you have experienced this while dreaming, and then continuing after waking?
This morning when I woke I was seeing a dazzlingly bright blue triangle of light, but only when I moved my eyes quickly so I guess it was purely physical. I've often seen circles of light in the same circumstances, and more recently a large arc of light at the left edge of my vision which I think was connected to some unknown 'event' which has left me with huge floaters in one eye, but never blue and angular, nor nearly so bright. Normally they are a similar colour to the migraine aura, which is interesting - one originating in the eye and the other in the mind [?] Fortunately it didn't last long.
