The kaleidoscopic flashing eye.

The kaleidoscopic flashing eye.

Four year ago now I woke up one day with a migraine, later on that day I started stammering every word and my right side went numb. Little did I know then that it would be the start of at least 15 migraine days a month. I suffer with hemiplegic migraines which means I have severe difficulty using the right side of my body during an attack, I also have speech problems with it, vision problems and get very confused, I sometimes pass out.
I also two years ago developed cluster headaches but luckier than some only get a handful most months.
My picture is of my eye during a migraine.
