I began suffering from migraine with aura a few years ago when I reached 50. It seemed associated both with flying and bright lights. I have sorted out glasses and sun glasses so have now reduced incidences just to the flying situation.
The strange thing is it comes on the minute the flight is called and I stand up to board. No matter how careful I am to be relaxed and wear the right glasses and avoid bright or flickering lights which might trigger an incident, it still happens.
The flight is called, I stand up to board, and my vision goes. This means I am walking towards and boarding the craft with very disturbed vision. I then get a mild headache and nausea, and the whole thing is over around 15 mins. But it gets the flight off to a very poor start.
I don't particularly like flying, but I am not nervous or worried about it. I know flying and migraines are associated, but have not heard of this pattern of sudden onset when the flight is called.
Does any one else suffer in this way or could shed any light?
