I usually drop off into a deep sleep sitting up and then wake up feeling bad. I get visual aura (scintillating scotoma) as well. Running to the bathroom - not fun. I can't stand light or noise and get irritable or depressed because I can't think straight and sometimes get very clumsy and tend to drop things. The headache pain usually hits about 20 minutes later. I am in the middle of this right now and am feeling despondent because I only had one decent day between this and the last one. :'(

I can get 1 of 2 kinds of auras, one of them I usually get the day before a migraine and that is verbal auras where I can't find the word for some (i.e. I look at a hat and say something you wear on your head or something that covers your hair) and the other one I get on the day of the migraine is visual it's kind of looking at a page of a book and having big blank places in your vision (kind of like big grey spots)....good luck my fellow migraine peeps
