In brief: Yes, very often
Visual distortions are often part of the aura that precedes the onset of headache in patient with classical migraines.
Use this! often, if you take your abortive medication as soon as the aura starts, you will be able to stop the headache before it becomes debilitating. Remember- earlier is better!
