Migraine Soundscape – Auditory Aura
I’m currently concentrating on auditory aura and how disturbing it can be as an experience. Inspired by my own experiences and the results from my migraine questionnaire I am creating a migraine soundtrack containing the most common auditory hallucinations and disturbances. My research shows that 75% of migraineurs suffer sound disturbance during a migraine. The most common form of auditory aura finds sufferers unable to understand someone when they are speaking to them. 34% of migraineurs questioned experienced this. Other experiences from next most common are;
A normal conversations sounds like the person is shouting
High pitched noise/tinnitus
My questionnaire is still open and if you haven’t taken it already I’d love to hear from you. It’s very short, quicker than making a cuppa! Click here to take it.
