Seriously. This article is somewhat uninformative. Migraines with aura can be just that - a normal migraine with aura. Or, they can fit into a classification of subtype of Migraine with Aura. Hemiplegic Migraines (FM and SM), Basilar MIgraines, etc. which are more serious. It may have been worthwhile including this in the article with some advice about what to do if any of these symptoms present. I've seen lots of people asking what they should do here.
Basically if you get anything where you think you may be at risk of a stroke do not hesitate to go to ER. I wound up in hospital last month suffering a Sporadic Hemiplegic Migraine and needed treatment to help it resolve and seeing a Neurologist tomorrow. If you're unsure of the facts do more research..dont rely on this article alone. It's a good basis for introduction to tell you that Migraines can have aura's other than visual variety - but if you do develop other auras such as aphasia and motor weakness you MUST get this checked out.
