The Types of Auras You May Experience During a Migraine


Migraine is a neurological disorder, not merely a headache. Although migraine attacks are primarily characterized by severe headaches, several additional symptoms can also appear. Aura is one of these signs.

A collection of symptoms known as an aura can appear either before or during a migraine attack. Often lasting 20 to 60 minutes, it can impair speech, feeling, or vision.

Aura [1] is thought to be experienced by 25 to 30 percent of people that experience migraines, according to the American Migraine Foundation [2]. It may occur before a migraine episode or as the attack is already underway. Not every bout of a migraine results in it.

Understanding migraine auras can aid you in spotting one as soon as possible, taking any necessary drugs, and being ready for the migraine attack.
