In brief: The migraine aura

The visual, sensory, and motor phenomena vary in complexity.
Common symptoms include visual disturbances during which the patient may describe homonymous visual changes. These changes may include geometric patterns obscuring the visual field, bright spots or flashing lights floating in the visual field. Rec.: orofacial pain or headache specialist for evaluation.
