One of the good thing about auras, is that if you’re aware of them, they’re effective (if unpleasant) warning signals of an oncoming seizure.
I didn’t learn to identify mine (mouth filling up with saliva and disgusting metallic taste) until I was well into my 20’s.
Then I added dark spots to my repertoire and I was having all three when I met my husband!
The good news is that once I recognized them, I would instinctively know to hit the floor (before the floor hit me) or find a safe place to weather out the storm.
The fact is: There are probably as many or more types of auras as there are types of epilepsy…
In short, an aura is a simple partial seizure, often followed by a larger event.
The feelings of the aura are often vague and many patients are unable to describe their features.
