I am interested in your experience with auras in Vestibular Migraine. I started to have auras about 10 years ago, with the onset of menopause. I usually had one or two auras per year. They slowly increased to monthly and currently, I have between two and four auras a month. The auras manifest themselves by zigzag lines (usually in my right eye) which start very slowly and then become big so that they dominate my vision. They last between five and 45 minutes. I then get a stiff neck, nausea and feel a little dizzy sometimes. These symptoms last for 1-3 days. I have been living with these symptoms, even though they are not comfortable. But they did not impact my life in a big way.
In May this year I had a major vestibular migraine attack which lead to a 4-day hospital stay. Interestingly however, I did not have an aura before this attack. The last aura before the attack was seven days ago. So I am now wondering are auras and vestibular migraine attacks connected with each other? It seems that I get auras, but no major attack. Or I get a major attack, but no auras. I am very interested to hear your experiences about this.
