This light show—known as an aura—ends after 15 minutes. Then the pain hits. “It feels like someone is slowly pulling on a nerve inside my head,” says Schmucker, a graphic designer from Bellevue, Washington. “It’s not the worst pain in terms of intensity but I feel like I’m going to lose my mind if I can’t stop it.
