It seems odd to call a silent migraine a "headache." What makes this neurological disorder different from the migraine headaches most people think of is that you don't get the usual pain. Even without it though, the other symptoms can be unsettling and can disrupt your normal day.
Your doctor can prescribe medications and devices to prevent silent migraines and treat their symptoms. Taking good care of yourself and avoiding your triggers will help, too.
Sensitivity to light, sounds, smells, touch, or motion
Afterward, many people are wiped out and have the blahs for as long as a day.
Not all migraine headaches follow the same pattern. Even for the same person, these headaches can be unpredictable.
Pain and Aura Causes
Researchers are now looking at the aura and the pain as two distinct things.
In the past, experts thought migraine headaches were mainly a problem with blood flow in your brain: Blood vessels in the brain expand, and the swelling activates pain pathways in the nervous system. Now they believe the headaches involve the way nerve cells are firing in your brain and how that activity relates to the blood flow.
