Migraine Aura

Maybe this video will help you to understand what I am talking about.
After Friday performance he had another attack on Sunday night at 8 pm and carried on for just 24 hours.
It slowly went away over the day yesterday and I decided to make a little video to show Hans when he was out of it.
I would call this a light attack, on Friday I would not have been able to laugh.
He has no headache, just goes completely out of his head.

Poor old lad, must be frustrating for you too and tax your patience Gerty.

Frustration is only one of the emotions I have at these times Kev.
I also feel alone because nobody can help, it is not a common thing, not many people have these symptoms and one of the first things even doctors think of is a stroke which we know it is not, he's had these auras since he was 19, he used to have terrible vision problems to start with only see half a road for instance, then pins and needles in his fingers before the brain switched off. The last few years it's blurred vision and a few minutes later he's gone.
The only thing he can do is go to bed and try to sleep it off, the tablets didn't help at all this time.

No Jean, Hans speaks English and thinks English, this is one of the strange things about it because he believes at the time he is speaking English. By the way after the attack is over he has no recollection of what happened, like amnesia. You have seen a very mild and the first time ever we have laughed while it goes on, usually to laugh is impossible.

Good job he has a diagnosis (of sorts) Imagine it happening years ago when people did not understand these things.
How does Motley cope? Does he realise that his Hans is not his Hans for a while?

I wonder if a video (for private viewing) of when he is worse might help him in some way, he's obviously a very clever man, but of course, seeing how he is might make him feel bad mentally.

I don't see what good that would do Kev, he has no control over what happens.
The only people who might be interested in it would be those who study migraine auras, but where one can be found I have no idea.

I think I would be curious as to what I was like in these episodes, (what you describe to him may conjure up different images in his mind to what actually happens) maybe Hans would be too
