First Time in Over 30 Years

I’ve lived with migraines for well over 30 years, but for the first time the other day I experienced the aura that other people talk about.

How weird that was! It was very disorienting and unsettling. I had no idea it could be like that.

Thankfully the pain wasn’t so bad – but it sure was hard to concentrate on anything.

How do you deal with it?
What can you do to stop it?

I know almost nothing about the phenomenon.

    Hi Ruth, aura can be very frightening. We have a couple of articles that you might want to browse, which discuss aura, each of us experience it a little differently. Hopefully, that will help until members of the community join the conversation. -All Best, Donna (Migraine.com team)
