This disease is also known as classical migraine, which consists of a headache that appears with sensory disturbances. That is together or after the aura. The symptoms that a person with migraine aura presents, can be changes in vision, itchy hands or face. As well as flashes of light or blind spots. With aura can be treated with the same medications and personal care measures.
Headache with AURA has symptoms that can cause temporary vision or sensory discomfort. They usually occur before all migraine signals. For example sensitivity to clarity and echo, nausea and severe headache.
Migraine aura usually originates 1 hour before you suffer from a headache. In addition its duration can be less than 1 hour. Migraine aura, presents with little presence of headache especially in people over 50 years.
Visual signs and symptoms

Scotchomas or black spots. Sometimes they are presented as if they were geometric designs
You can see zigzag-shaped lines that emerge progressively along your visual field
Stars or bright dots
Vision loss or changes
Flashes of light
These visual discomforts tend to start in the center of your visual field and spread outward from it.
Other sensory discomforts
Some temporary discomforts, sometimes linked to the migraine aura, include the following:
Hallucination of numbness, usually in the form of sensitivity in one hand or face
Problem with speech or language
When to consult with the doctor
You can visit an expert immediately if you show the signs and symptoms of migraine with aura. As well as temporary loss of sight or hazy spots or wavy lines in your field of vision. Your doctor should rule out more serious conditions. For example a stroke (stroke) or a tear of the retina.
When the doctor rules out the conditions, you don’t need to go to a doctor about possible future migraines. But if you have symptoms that are not related to migraine, you should go.
