Yesterday, while out with the family, I started feeling dizzy and like my body was trembling on the inside. My wife asked if I was okay because she'd noticed that my hands had drained of all colour.

A few hours later, as we were returning home, I felt the familiar signs of an oncoming migraine. On arrival I took some pills and went to bed, sleeping through for 12 hours which only ever happens when I'm ill.

I was reminded of this post from December when I had similar symptoms so wonder if this is how my migraines will now choose to manifest - like some kind of early warning system.

    @colinwalker Sorry to hear about the migraines, but I’m glad you’re noticing your aura. My migraine aura involves hightened sensitivity to light and sound—when that starts happening, I know I need to start taking my meds and getting to bed. Very important to recognize yours so you can prepare.

      This is only a relatively recent development. I always used to get twitching around the eyes and a throbbing above my left eye. Interesting that this new development has appeared.

    @colinwalker Oh, a change in aura is unusual. Sending good thoughts that the migraines subside and are fewer and far between.
