|i've had migraines with auras ever since I was about 19 years old (so for 8 years now), and most of the time the actual aura is worse than the migraine pain aspect. Often I won't even get the pain part, but the aura is just so terrifying it's much worse to me.
What can you do to get rid of this? My migraines are occasional (like once or twice a year) and I used to think they were caused by neck strain and eye strain but the last one seemed to have no cause at all, which I find scary.
I read about people saying they take various things and it stops the pain, but how can you stop the initial phase of the migraine that causes the aura in the first place?
I go basically blind in one or both eyes, my hands go numb, the side of my face and tongue goes numb and I start violently shaking and hyperventilating. Sometimes I can't think or read or write either, and when I speak it sounds like i'm not in my own head. Like my voice is coming from an external source. Very disturbing.
