How to prevent migraine, cloudy spots and flashes of light at corners of eyes?

I m having migraine since twenty years. I experience cloudy spots and after that flashes of light in zigzag shape at the corners of eyes it lasts for about 20 to 30 mints then it goes away and I feel throbbing pain at one side of my head . I take pons ton forte or Brufen 400 mg but it is not so effective. Please recommend some medication. I have migraine once or twice a month.

Hello
It seems from the history that you are having migraine. Cloudy spots, flashes of light are the common prodromal symptoms of the migraine.
The treatment of the migraine in acute phase is by use of analgesics and by use of ergot alkaloids.
Since you are having recurrent attacks of migraine you need to take prophylactic drugs like flunarizine or beta blockers like propranolol.
Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for prescription of drugs.

Thank you

my daughter is only 24 years old, however she has experienced flashing spots and zig zag lines in the vision of her left eye. This is new to her but I have had these same symptoms for years off and on and I was told they were called Eye Migraines . I am concerned because the other day after the spots occurred she experienced cloudy vision in her left eye and lost feeling in her left fingers. This was temporary and it did not last long. I was wondering if these were still symptoms of an Eye Migraine or if there is possibly something else going on. My daughter does get severe headaches at least twice a week and has for years. I believe this runs in my husbands side of the family with the severe headaches.
