The strange thing is that after succeeding in making this animation of the way I see the aura, as it happens before the actual migraine headache starts, I just now am starting to see an aura. This is probably because the problem I had set for myself is finally solved.
The only thing which I see differently from the crystallized effect above is sharp triangles, sort of like a Paul Klee painting rotated forty-five degrees. I searched how to achieve this, but I have not found it yet.
The scrambled and flickering spots differ in size and location with each attack - sometimes centered and at others around the edges of my field of view. The subject behind the aura section is visible but moves around within the scrambling of it. Trying to concentrate on what I am doing only aggravates the following migraine headache. So the thing to do is lie down for fifteen minutes to half an hour. Sometimes no headache follows or a little one. Sporadically a very heave migraine headache will result. One or two times, like above, I got it while driving; in Holland once stopped. The time or two I saw this here in Finland it was possible to carefully drive on and hope for no moose trying to coincide with my aura.
