Harmless migraine auras?

Have you ever experienced a migraine aura? I didn’t until my mid-40’s. It scared me enough to run to my eye doctor with this new symptom. He explained the moving, flashy squiggles in my peripheral vision as harmless. He had them himself sometimes. Ok. Whew!

Then I recently read that there is a link to these and heart disease. Wow! Thinking back on my own flashy “worms”, I realized that I haven’t had one since heart bypass surgery in 2007. This blew my mind! It seems in my case that there was a connection.

Here is a link to the article: http://www.news.harvard.edu/gazette/2006/11.02/13-migraine.html
