thanks all

Why do you need to decide? I would just tell your doctor you’ve been having headaches, and it’s up to them to find out/work out whether it’s migraine, or some other cause.

With migraines, people often, but not necessarily have other symptoms, such as nausea, or visual changes.

It’s also possible to have a migraine that involves no headache at all - just the visual changes. I had one of those, and it was very beautiful and psychedelic. As it didn’t hurt at all, I actually tried to induce another one, for the amazing “trippy” experience - but never succeeded.

Yep, I get twinkly little dots around my peripheral vision. Quite pretty and no pain but I know when this happens my ms plays up :s like Anitra says, let them figure it out. Tell them all about it. Xxx
