In brief: Aura or none

An aura can occur prior to the migraine.
Most of the time this is flashing lights in a "zig-zag" pattern. Sometimes it can be difficult to see through the lights. Many times patients just know. They get a "difficult to describe feeling". They just feel worse. Many patients have no warning. The headache just begins with the pain.
