Yes. I am not on any medications. My doctor has just started me on a
medicine that will widen my blood vessels. This is supposed to treat
the migraine aura.

My neurologist states that it in fact is a migraine w/out headache.
The advice I was given is to avoid eating butter, cheese, betal leaf
(an herb used as breath-freshener), coffee, or chocolate. The doctor
calls these "bad" foods. He also suggested to avoid looking at 3-D
designs and abstain from playing Virtual Reality games.
