photophobic

  • By barbie86

    Hello to everyone!

    Is it normal that if you are having migrains with aura you are photophobic? But not only when you get aura,I mean every day … and that you sometimes see little shiny spots for a secund and than it goes away?

    Hi barbie86,

    Being photophobic can occur during a migraine attack – I experience this during most of my attacks. A small number of people do experience persistent visual aura, but that should definitely discuss this with your doctor. Have you had a through eye exam recently? That may be another thing to discuss with your doctor.

    In the meantime let me give you information on persistent aura; https://migraine.com/blog/what-is-a-migraine-aura/.

    Yes, I’m photophobic during my attacs, I don’t know but sometimes I have headache after aura, sometimes not. I also found out that if I’m doing some physical work and don’t eat a lot, I see a light spot for some seconds. I don’t know if this is aura or something else? Has anyone such experience?
