While auras can be motor or other sensory in nature, most are visual, the presence of which can be assessed by the visual aura rating scale (VARS). In most patients, the headaches are unilateral, pulsating and of moderate to severe intensity; the aura may not occur on the same side as the migraine. Patients are asymptomatic between episodes. There may be a family history of migraines and of travel sickness.
