Two Optical Auras In One Day?

Sunday afternoon I was driving when I experienced a scintillating scotoma. Fortunately my partner was with me, so she could take over the driving. I sprayed with Zomig immediately, but the pain came anyway. When we got home, I went to bed. After a few hours, I felt better, so I got up, did a few things. Suddenly, I experienced ANOTHER scotoma! I have NEVER had 2 in the same day! In fact, over the last several months, I hadn't had any optical auras at all, after many years of them. So, you can understand, the first one surprised me....the second one AMAZED me. I sprayed Zomig a second time, and went back to bed.

Answer

Carol,

It's not very common to have two Migraine attacks in one day, but it can happen. That said, we cannot give medical advice here. Whenever you experience a change in your Migraine pattern, you need to report it to your doctor to be sure it IS Migraine and that all is well. So, please do check in with your doctor?

Keep us posted!
