I have posted recently about migraine auras. I used to have regular migraines as a youngster, but these reduced in frequency and intensity over the years. After my catheter ablation, I experienced a migraine aura, but without the headache; I knew to expect this, so wasn’t worried.
I had a migraine Aura again in early July, which did not lead to headache. I also experienced one on holiday a couple of weeks ago and again yesterday. Looking back over the last few years, it has been rare for a migraine to progress to headache; I had decided the cause was low blood sugar/dehydration and at the start of an aura, I would drink fluids, eat something sugary and take a paracetamol. Since my ablation, I have done none of this and have still not had a headache. I am now wondering whether the current migraines are not related to my youthful ones, and perhaps are related to AF.
I have posted this on the AFA discussion forum to see if anyone else has experienced anything similar.
