I’ve been diagnosed by two different doctors…one says migraines with auras, one said migraines without auras. Do auras *always* happen BEFORE the pain of the migraine? I have significant vision changes during a migraine (blurred/double vision, flashing squiggles in my peripheral vision that cause pain). I don’t typically have these before the pain sets in. I awake every day with what I call “pressure” on the right side of my head. By pressure, I mean the rubber band tightening throughout the day feeling I’ve read described here. Usually it increases to pain by 2pm, my typical onset time. So are my vision changes during a migraine considered an aura? PS – I am really appreciating the wealth of information here!
Looking for clarification on auras.
