Afraid to Drive

I have been dealing with headaches for most of my 57 years. I have been shuffled from doctor to doctor who haven't been able to help and I'm just about over it. Anyway, the past couple of weeks I have had an ocular migraine every day. A couple of them seem like hemiplegic migraines and when then hit, I can't even come close to seeing clearly. I have sat in my car in parking lots for up to an hour until I can see well enough to drive home. I am now afraid to go anywhere.

Has anyone been hit with an aura while driving and what did you do about it? Does anyone have any suggestions regarding dealing with this problem? Thanks.
