Today, I experienced a weird, shiny, sparkly thing in my vision for a good half-hour or more. Upon describing it to people and Googling (I know, I know), it seems to match the description of an aura that people get before a headache. Thing is, I never got the headache part, just the annoying sparkly bit in my vision.
I read that some people have just the aura and never get the headache, and that this is technically a migraine of some kind. I’ve never heard of this, but apparently it’s possible. Now, assuming this is what I had (and I don’t know, I don’t trust Dr. Google that much)…
1) I’m worried because I started a new BC a few weeks ago, and if it’s connected, wouldn’t that be a bad thing?
2) I’m worried because I know that migraines (traditional, painful ones, anyway) are a blood clot risk with HBC. Does anyone know if this applies to the painless kind?
I’m the type to panic a bit and go convincing myself I have a brain tumor (did that today, for about 2 hours), so I am pretty anxious about this. Any insights would be super-helpful to my mental health.
