Migraine with Aura – New changes

I have been experiencing Migraines with Auras as long as I can remember. I believe I was about 5 years old but I didn’t know how to explain what was going on. My mother also has migraines but without auras.

I usually get my migraines with aura once every month, or 2 month or sometimes as long as 3 months. Occasionally I will get them 2 days in a row. But for the last 4 weeks, I have gotten at least one migraine with aura every day. Some days I will have 2 or 3 in one day. Sometimes the aura will come from the right side and cross over to left. and back again. I get them during the day, or in the morning that wake me up or during the night.

I can not pinpoint a trigger since the change in frequency. I am not overly stressed, they come whether or not the weather changes, I am not taking new medications, and I am not eating certain foods that seem to be a trigger.

I’m confused, concerned and frustrated as I believe my doctor is not taking it seriously enough. Please help with any information you may have. Thank you.
