I’m in full support of migraine research. Check out the questionnaire at the bottom.
I’m currently concentrating on auditory aura and how disturbing it can be as an experience. Inspired by my own experiences and the results from my migraine questionnaire I am creating a migraine soundtrack containing the most common auditory hallucinations and disturbances. My research shows that 75% of migraineurs suffer sound disturbance during a migraine. The most common form of auditory aura finds sufferers unable to understand someone when they are speaking to them. 34% of migraineurs questioned experienced this. Other experiences from next most common are;
A normal conversations sounds like the person is shouting
High pitched noise/tinnitus
My questionnaire is still open and if you haven’t taken it already I’d love to hear from you. It’s very short, quicker than making a cuppa! Click here to take it.
