Additional Info

The word migraine is associated with a vast array of neurological conditions relating to what most people use in reference to a really bad headache. An ocular migraine is often called a silent migraine, acephalgic migraine, sans-migraine, migraine equivalent, eye migraine, visual migraine, ocular migraine, painless migraine or simply migraine aura without headache. The best name is simply a migraine aura without headache.

Other migraines can be divided into two camps; with headache and without headache (acephalgic). Those two categories are then further divided into specific classes as listed below.

    • Migraine without aura
    • Migraine with aura
    • Abdominal Migraine
    • Basilar-type Migraine
    • Familial hemiplegic Migraine
    • Sporadic hemiplegic Migraine
    • Retinal Migraine
