Hello everyone and thank you in advance for any replies, I'm a 56 yr old male and this is my first post, so apologies for it being rather long. I have experienced Migraines with and without Aura's since my first one at around 20. I usually only have the Aura variety which last's about 30 mins and involves a variety of symptoms including partial sight loss, slurred or delayed speech, feeling like i'm wrapped in cotton wool and sensory deprivation especially taste. I would fortunately put myself in the "occasional sufferer" category only having sporadic events and sometimes with many months in between attacks. My GP's have never considered my migraines as worthy of note although one did prescribe Migraleave once which was very effective but since then I have found taking a paracetamol as being enough. Although my migraine's are infrequent and I have come to see them as more of a nuisance because they rarely lay me up for more than a few hours. I do occasionally get nasty headaches that attack the right hand side of my head and neck and these can be brutes that last for several day's. As I have said my migraine's have been more of a inconvenience than anything but about 2 weeks ago I experienced 3 Aura attacks over 5 days and since the last one I have been experiencing some very strange feelings and sensations including memory loss, dizziness akin to (for those who know the feeling) having a few to many wines, vision problems especially when reading (almost as if letters/words disappear), with my right eye feeling like it is stiff or playing catchup and a general feeling of anxiety or dissociation. I have read a number of accounts here and I noted that some of what I'm describing is associated with their own attacks and I'm wondering if anyone has a recommended course of action, any advice, or words of wisdom because this current attack is very unsettling to say the least. I have made an appointment to see my GP and wonder if I should ask her to look for, or test for anything in particular.
