I get a precursor to a migraine if it is going to be a severe one. The weather has made a dramatic change today, and I have started with what might be an aura, visual, only this one behaves by frequent trips to the bathroom. It is like I have taken a Lasix, there is copious amount of urine and I go every 15-30 times 2-4 hours, then stops.
Any where between 6-12 hours the headache arrives.
Have any of you heard of this, when I bring it up, I'm told that it is not an aura they recognize.

God Bless, Charla.
