Aura is the sensation or warning experienced by a patient before the onset of an attack. In this stage, consciousness is not altered and the patient may experience it in many forms, without losing consciousness.

Aura can be in the form of feeling numbness in any part of the body and headache lasting for days. Patients feel a sensation of pain in epigastrium(the upper central region of the abdomen) with vomiting and vertigo. This is one of the major symptoms of Epilepsy.

Sometimes the patient feels a sensation of uncertain smell and flashing of lights and sounds in the ear. An aura is a form of simple partial seizure and it is not necessary that every patient will have an aura.
