I have suffered migraines since a young child, I am now 30 and I suffer mostly from Silent/Acephalgic migraines.
Last night for the first time in my life I had an aura during sleep.
I was aware of it within my dream, the dream was stressful/odd and I remember vividly recognising that it was there within the dream itself. I then woke up to find that I was actually in the middle of experiencing a full blown aura. I then got up and had my usual depressive/irritable mood. Not a pleasant way to wake up!
Has anyone had this? I don’t know why, but I am finding the fact that my migraine aura invaded my sleep extremely unsettling. I have no idea what my triggers are but I always assumed they were day time stimulus, now I am thinking not?
Just reaching out to see if anyone has had this experience.
