Hi! I have had some questions on my mind for a while and can't really afford a doctor visit. my migraines started at 8 years old, they used to be very painful without an aura and only moms vicadin and throwing up would help, they were fairly frequent. frequency lowered at a slow rate over the years until 17 years old, had my first visual aura that began to precede every painful migraine. now I am nearing 30, and I have noticed I that most of the time now I do not get painful migraines after the aura, I just get the aura alone that really screws my vision up for 5 minutes up to an hour. did anyone else experience this change in migraine patterns over their life? or something similar?

      @Tightrope it’s called Idiopathic Intercranial Hypertension it’s where you get to much spinal fluid built up and it puts pressure on your brain and you get migraines… And the thing is studies show that they don’t have any clue why the body does this, they gave me Diamox and LASIKs to help it and it helped

      I had same symptoms and had to have spinal fluid drained to take the pressure off my head and my migraines subsided and also with medication they diagnosed me with IIH
