Ophthalmic migraine is a form of migraine with aura that combines the traditional headache with visual neurological symptoms, otherwise called "visual aura".
The aura appears upstream, or in a contemporary way to migraine. And is manifested on the contralateral side to migraine, by various visual symptoms variable from one person to another.
The most common symptom is scintillating scotoma (a luminous point in a visual hemi-field that evolves towards a black hole in the visual field).
Other events are possible, such as:
- the loss of contralateral field of vision to migraine,
- a scotome (black hole in the visual field),
- phosphenes (lightning flashes in a visual field),
- visual hallucinations (such as the deformation of certain objects),
- kaleidoscopic visions, etc.
Ophthalmic migraine is partly explained by genetic factors. Thus, it is not uncommon to find a family history of migraine, and more specifically migraine with aura.
Like all migraines, seizures can be facilitated by internal factors (stress, hormones, lack or excess of sleep, etc.) and by external factors (diet, contraceptive pill, consumption of toxins, strong sensory stimulation, etc.). .
The management of an ophthalmic migraine is based on the rules of diet and diet, on the medical treatment of the crisis, and possibly on basic treatments.Want to share, share your experience or need advice? Appointment in our FORUMS Migraine and Headaches, General Health or A doctor answers you!
