Ive had two aura episodes in the past month or so and prior to the first one I never had auras before. The symptoms make me think they're focal seizures because they're only effecting one side of my body. My right eye will have obscured vision that's almost like vibrating and my left is completely normal. my doctor's are saying migraine but the auras only last 30-60 second or so and then after I'm so exhausted I can't stay awake and sleep for 2-3 hours after the episode. the first episode presented with confusion, high hr, extreme anxiety, and extreme exhaustion plus some mild memory loss following the episode. The second episode was only the aura, the extreme exhaustion after, and some mild memory loss. My doctor's are trying to say migraine but I really feel it's not and I'm curious if anyone has focal seizures that present similarly. every migraine aura description/picture looks nothing like the visual disturbances I've had. thanks 🙂

For those that are familiar with spoon theory: I definitely live by it. It has helped me commit to pacing myself on my bad days AND good days. It's become a point of pride for me to be able to say I feel like I have spoons over at the end of the day. It's also helped me explain how I manage my energy consumption to my partner. She got be a keychain with little spoons on them for Christmas two years ago so that I always have extra spoons on me, and now looks for spoonie merch everywhere we go. I'm trying to focus on the positive today, and spoon theory has definitely been a positive in my chronic illness journey. Since it's working well for me, I'm curious. oes anyone else finds comfort in having a metaphor to describe how chronic illness impacts energy? Have you found that it helps others understand? Or has it changed the way you understand yourself?

are any of you on emgality for migraines? my Dr wants me to switch to it from nurtec ODT. the nurtec hasn't been helping like it should, I'm down to fewer migraines, but still having several a month.
Anybody have any experience (positive or negative) with topiramate for migraines? My neurologist wants me to give it a try before we take the plunge and push for insurance to cover botox injections.
I've basically maxed out on Topamax to help prevent migraines and they aren't helping anymore. my doctor just suggested injections. has anyone done the beta blocker injection or botox injection? I'm curious about both but unsure about them

I've been having an increase in migraines lately. I live in the Midwest and our weather has been crazy! It's 90, then 60, then 47, then 89, then 50...ugh. Not to mention rain, then sunny, humid, then not. The migraines have been unbearable (almost went to the ER yesterday). Is anyone else having an uptake in their migraines? If so, what have you done that has helped? I'm taking my medication, but it doesn't always work.
Does anyone experience chronic dizziness? Is this due to your migraines or something else? Did it go away with migraine treatment?
Hi, new to the app but not to migranes unfortunately. I am very excited to have found a community that know what it's like. I've had migranes with aura for almost a decade and regular ones for even longer, I wanted to ask what are some things you do to remain calm during migrane episodes?
