  1. Dr. Andrew Charles said that the scans show migraine to be “quite a spectacular neurological event”. It is such a relief to know that they can “see” a migraine. I’d like to get a picture of one of mine.

    1. Just wish you could see it on the outside more so……….. but yes a visual aura is like an electrical or chemical wave that moves across the visual cortex of your brain. It is possible to see this via a MRI. I will try and find one – it would be nice to share 🙂 x

      1. Thanks! Is it only visual auras they can get on a scan? Or can they get images of other types of aura or other phases of migraine?
