Does Anyone Just Get The Aura With No Headache?

Does Anyone Just Get The Aura With No Headache?

I had my first Aura 20yrs ago at the age of 42 and it scared the life out of me, luckily for years I didn't have anymore, now 25yrs later I am getting them almost everyday, i have had my eyes examined and all ok there, so apart from a lot of stress I am at a loss to know what has started to cause them to come back with such frequency. Please let me know if any of you migraine sufferers have silent migraine, and is there anything I can do to lessen the attacks.

Dehydration

Dehydration

The other day, I had a migraine after not drinking enough water. Can this be because I was slightly dehydrated?

A MyMigraineTeam Member said:

I have a hard time completely giving up caffeine. One caffeine beverage is usually fine. Gave up sodas in 2010. My coach told me too.

Has anyone use the dual cefaly device for when you have a migraine and to prevent migraines? So far I tried it with migraines and it didn’t work, it actually made it worse. I’m willing to try it without migraine as a preventative.
