In brief: Aura Varies

Aura are commonly visual but can involve other senses.
Aura typically last 10-30 minutes and some patients never experience this stage of migraine. Migraines progress through four stages - prodrome, aura, attack & postdrome. Aura aren't the same for everyone and vary from bright flashing lights to partial vision loss. Aura typically occur before migraine but can occur concurrently with the pain.
