Can migraine headaches make someone permanently blind?
I suffer regularly from migraine headaches with aura (I go blind for about twenty minutes and then my vision returns when the headache starts..) I’ve just been googling migraine on the intenret and have read that it can make someone permenantly blind, and can increase the risk of strokes and coma. Is this true? I’m panicking now because I suffer from migraines at least twice a week.

Well,you should have went to the emergency room when this occurred.I’m speaking about going blind for a total of 20 minutes.
I know that if I had a migraine(which I have),and went totally blind for any amount of time…I would clearly go directly to the emergency room…every time that would happen.
And,seeing how you have this happen 2 times a week,and go blind 2 times a week….surly you see your doctor,or go right to the emergency room when this occurs.
This is my advice to you.When this happens…go directly to the emergency room to be evaluated as soon as possible.And,also….see your doctor in reference to going blind every time you have a migraine…2 times a week.
