A quick history of myself: I have always suffered from migraines with aura since I was about 14/15. This comes in the form of a gradual visual disturbance that disappears after 30 minutes and then head pain, nausea, etc. It is very familiar to me now and comes a few times a year.
However, last Tuesday I had an episode which someone suggested could be migraine, but its nothing like anything I ever experienced. Basically I was sat at work and suddenly the vision in my left eye became disturbed, as if I had been staring at lights for too long. It took up a lot of my visual field. I thought I was passing out at first (similar kind of visual symptom) but I managed to get up and go for a glass of water whilst this visual event was happening. It lasted 2 minutes. I've been told this can be an 'ocular' migraine, but I thought thats what my normal migraines are.. I was very worried that something bad might be happening, but have tried to tell myself it was probably a migraine. I'm just looking for someone with similar experience. It was not like scintillating scotoma. I've had migraine-like headaches since and typical migraine feeling that I get (feeling spacey, tired, etc)
