Is it normal to all of a sudden have a visual aura before a migraine...

When you never experienced one before? Yesterday I got colorful zig zags in my vision it lasted a few minutes and it scare me because it warped my vision. When I closed my eyes I could see it more and it was colorful and then after it was gone I had a small headache.

The thing is a week before my dog hit my jaw while playing and I felt pain in my head and neck. And i even had small headaches for a day or two after that could this be related to that? Or its just new symptoms for the migraines I been getting? Because i only usually just get tongue tied before a migraine hits where I stutter no visual changes like this...

It sounds like a new presentation of your migraine. Mine can make me blind, I also have auras sometimes. I also identify with the stuttering. I would discuss this with your doctor but I would not be too worried. Hang in there and let us know what comes of this. Your story can help others suffering the same types of symptoms.

I get these as well. I lose vision in my right eye and have a left sided migraine. When it first happened I thought I was having a stroke. The doctor confirmed it was a migraine. My trigger seems to be any processed meats - not sure if its the nitrates in them or what. But since I've been watching that I get these alot less.
