Has anyone experienced tingling on their head before getting a migraine?

Aimovig

dayI'm stuggling my lovely group. I know a lot of this message won't be worded right or text correctly. So i have a question, my doc decided today to take me of the injections aimovig, also nadadlol.

Does anything take away the Auroras?

I am 32 now and it seems like the older I am getting the more frequent my migraines are coming and my Auroras are getting worse and now coming in both eyes.

My auras are auditory but I never had them before this year. I've had migraines for a long time, but was only officially diagnosed in 2015.
