I am now in my sixties, but, when I was was younger I can remember having one-sided headaches which completely debilitated me. I could only recover from them by sleeping. I never saw a doctor about them, although now I wonder if they were, in fact, migraine headaches. Thankfully, I haven't had a headache of this type for years, but I do occasionally get aura - flashing, sparkling lights and blind spots in my vision so that I can't read anything. It usually lasts for about 30 minutes and then I get what I would call a thick head, but no headache. I'll be seeing my GP in a week and wondered whether to mention this. I suppose I want to be be sure that I'm not mistaking these symptoms for the start of a stroke or a mini stroke. Is this type of aura common? And is it worth discussing with the doctor?
