Now that's different. I'll have to try that (knock on wood) the next time I get a migraine.
You get auras. OMG, I feel for you. I only had one migraine with an aura. I thought I was having a stroke, scared the hell out of me. Once the pain hit, I was sicker than hell for two days.
I'm glad that works for you.

What were your symptoms?
NONE until one of the stones decided it was time to move from my Kidney and it 'passed'. I had no clue that I had kidney stones prior to that. Then at 1:30 am I woke up from sleep and ... BAM! ... The pain was unbearable. Hours and hours of it. Throwing up too. Pain where the kidney is .. all the way from the back to the front. I was in the car on the way to the hospital (husband driving) and I had so much pain I was on the edge of passing out. I've never felt anything like that before or since (and I even took a beach umbrella impalement through the leg, didn't use any pain killers, and it still hurt less than that kidney stone).
Three days later, after it passed, there was visible blood in the urine for a day or so. The test of the stone showed the typical calcium stone. (it looked like a kidney bean).
The xrays showed more stones in both kidneys.
I'd rather die then go through that again. I mean it.

Your thread has inspired me to see how long I can go without any soft drinks. So far, I have lasted almost 24 hours. Very early days, but I going to try be very disciplined about this and hope to get through at least 1 full week like you did.
