New Migraine Symptom

  • By MrsBourne75

    I have had migraines since I was 14 years old, and have been in active treatment for the last 4 years. I have experienced severely painful migraines, as well as completely painless ones that only included auras, sparkles and floaters. Today, I experienced a completely new symptom. I woke up with a severely painful migraine. I treated with my normal ibuprofen, strong coffee and dark chocolate. As I was driving to work, I noticed that I could see the colors green and red VERY vividly with all other colors appearing muted almost as if they were in grey scale. Has anyone else ever had this happen??

    Hi MrsBourn75,

    Thank you for your questions. I’ve not experiecend that but can tell you when we have new and/or different symptoms it’s always a good idea to report them to the doctor so he can rule out anything more serious.

    I have spoken with many patients who described their visual aura in a similar manner. When you get a chance take a look at this article about different visual arua;
