Migraine Aura Club-What Do You See?



This is a set of twinchies that I made. I doodled the backgrounds, cut the girls from vintage mags and labeled them. This isn't an aura club just for black lines aura. I know a lot of people see colors and stars, etc...but I was trying to incorporate my doodling into a collage.

So what kind of aura do you see? I tend to be a squiggles kind of girl.

I just found your blog, and I'm following you at Twitter. I've had migraines and other chronic headaches for many years. I find it interesting, how you are turning this nasty thing into some interesting works of art. Bless you.

My auras are usually jagged, sharp, coruscating patterns, but sometimes I just get a big blank spot in the middle of my vision. If you simply took the head off the ladies in your collage, that's what people look like when I have that kind of aura. Am I sure I'm not just crazy?

Love your blog. I suffer from migraines every few months - I think they're hormonal. Just had one last night.

The aura I get normally begins with a blank spot in my vision that grows. Then bright, sparkling kaleidoscope hallucinations appear - usually in a line formation or in a C-shape along my peripheral vision line (I had the c-shape last night). The severity of my vision loss is normally an indicator of how bad the migraine pain will be.

Sometimes, the kaleidoscope starts first and grows adding blank spots, but it always feels the same. :(

Here's hoping you find an answer to migraine pain management soon. :)

I've had amazing results with a ketogenic, high fat, very low carb diet for my migraines (unless I cheat, of course!) good luck.
