I am a 22 year old female, I've been experiencing aura migraines with vomiting since I was 8 years old. Since the years have passed, I still get aura migraines but not the vomiting, however, I get other more severe symptoms. It ALWAYS starts with the aura (like I'm looking through a kalediscope) in one eye, then comes the headache which is usually tolerable, then tingling and numbness moving from my hand up to my fave and mouth on one side only which is also occompanied with aphasia. I definitely have to say the aphasia and the tingling is the worst part of it all. Very scary and I always think "this is it, this is the time I'm gonna have a stroke" but of course like most things, it passes . The aphasia is terrible, I will be slurring my speech, I can't speak because I'm not even sure how to comprehend words... I'll be thinking "water.. Wait is that the right word? Water doesn't sound right" its very scary! Worst feeling. Does anyone else get it this intenesly ? Its almost like I'm having a stroke. I'm only 22.. I am so fed up with them, I just wanna make sure I'm okay. I called today and I made an appointment to see a neurologist tlnext week.
