I get the wierdest migraines… it starts out as a whitish half circle that is in my vision, like a really bad blind spot.. as soon as this goes away (usually within a half an hour) i get a pounding dense headache. Sometimes it is accompanied by a really weird smell, that really isnt there. I have had these for about for about 8 years. I have been told they are called migraines with auras, and i have heard it called something else but i forgot the name. If any one else has these please let me know about it! If anyone can tell me what exactly is going on, please help?! I have tried to research it on the internet but i dont really get anywhere. HELP!
