I was wondering if it’s possible to go from a common migraine (no aura) to a classic migraine (with aura).
I’ve had migraines for almost 4 years now. They used to be episodic common migraines that would only come during and after my period. But ever since July or so my migraines are a lot more frequent, having from 4 to 7 migraines per month to the point that I can’t even identify the triggers anymore. And I’ve also had new symptoms like dificulty concentrating and speaking, mood swings (sometimes I feel like I’m drunk) and even numbness and the feeling of “needles” in my arms, fingers and face. I’ve done a little research and I’ve seen that this needle sensation is frequent in auras. But as I said, I never had any visual disturbances or anything like an aura before.
Is it possible that my episodic common migraine have turned into chronic classic migraines? I’ve been going to the same neurologist for years and I follow a preventive and an abortive treatment.
