Just recovering from my second migraine this week and feeling a bit sorry for myself! I have had migraine with aura since I was about 16 (I am now 59). Sometimes I get the pain sometimes just the aura. Mine starts with a blind spot in the centre then changes to a jagged arc that gradually moves to the edge of my vision and disappears. I always feel totally washed out after an attack. Its hard to convince non sufferers how bad you feel. They think "it's only a headache"!!!! So glad I found this site, feeling better already.
