I can’t hardly say the word… for fear I will get one. I have apparently had “silent migraines” for many years before GBS with only the aura. But now I get the aura and the clamp on my head pain feeling. My neuro thought it might be hormone related, but that hasn’t changed anything. Light appears to be a trigger for me in some way and the only thing I can do is get in a dark and quiet room for about 12 hours.
I have been under some unusual stress lately and have experienced the visual arua so bad it would re-start every 30 minutes. Haven’t been to a doc in a while to tell them that. I take Imitrex but I don’t think it does any good.
Good luck on your investigation and what works for you!
