Clinical information Familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM) is a form of migraine headache that runs in the family. Recurrent headaches typically begin in childhood or adolescence and may last from a few hours to even a few days. People with familial hemiplegic migraine often have so-called aura that comes directly before the headache. The most common symptoms associated with an aura involve temporary visual changes such as blind spots (scotomas), flashing lights, and double vision. In hemiplegic migraine, aura may also be characterized by a temporary weakness, often affecting one side of the body (hemiparesis). Typically, aura is developing gradually over a few minutes and is lasting for about an hour.
