Sudden Increase in Migraines with Aura: Causes and More

What Is a Migraine With Aura?

Migraines are a neurological condition that affects many people around the world. It leads to painful headaches that may disrupt daily lives and even lead to disability. A migraine with aura is relatively different from a typical migraine. People with this form typically see sensory or visual disturbances before the onset of headaches. Auras occur because of changes in brain activity. In addition, they would appear before or at the same time of a headache. A migraine with aura is typically linked to smoking, high blood pressure, or stroke. [1]
