migraine sufferers…reassurance?

i suffer 3-4 aura migraines a year, ive just read they are mini stokes and could cause long term brain damage, can someone calm me down very upset


  1. I have migraines daily?? No, never heard of them being called that. You can get a prescription called imitrex for pain it really helps.

  2. Where did you read that? I’ve never heard it before and it doesn’t sound likely to me. I know aura symptoms can be very similar to symptoms of other conditions, is it possible you read wrong?
    Migraine’s usually don’t pose any significant risk to your health. Don’t worry about it.

  3. I have this exact thing. I usually get them 5 to 7 times a year, practically once a month and then I have a break. Then they come back! So annoying!
    So the first time it happened to me, I had no idea what was going on, people were fading, and it seemed as if I was going blind. I had a huge migraine afterward. Later on I had them more often and told everyone about it. No one seemed to understand. NOT EVEN THE DOCTOR! I thought something was terribly wrong with me. One day I found out that what I have are ocular migraines, and that actually a lot of people get them. My teacher, half of my relatives, and a bunch of people at school all get them.
    So many people I know have them. They DO NOT have brain damage because of them (In fact my second cousin, who gets them is SUPER smart). I haven’t ever gotten a stroke because of them, and they don’t cause strokes. I have done research on ocular migraines at school, etc.
    So all in all, even though ocular migraines are exhausting, they are not harmful. Whatever you read was a false article, (people put whatever on the internet). They are either trying to purposely scare you or have no idea what they are actually writing. So let me clear this up, ocular migraines are not mini strokes and do not cause long term brain damage. I don’t want you worrying or getting upset about a false article you read that is not true.

  4. please dont say that my 6year old daughter has just been diagnosted with child migranes she has then every other day shes sick when she has them to its horrible feel so sorry for her waiting to go see a head clinic to the try control them
