When you normally think of a migraine, you often imagine someone in a dark room with a throbbing headache, perhaps feeling nauseous and/or vomiting. However with a silent migraine there is no head pain. The most common sign of a silent migraine is a visual aura and they typically last for 30-60 minutes. They most commonly affect women who are under the age of 40. Even without the head pain, silent migraines can be very disorienting. Although it is more common for a silent migraine to only last a short time, some people can have a silent migraine lasting hours to days to weeks, leaving them feeling symptoms such as nausea and vision impairment that is ongoing.
