Yesterday something really strange happend to my vision... it's happend before but not for nearly two years now; and this time I didn't freak out but tested it and tried to analyse the experience logically but I still don't know what is happening and I am beginning to think I may have something wrong with me.
I've had migraines off and on for years, but this experience is much different than I remember. In a real migraine I experience extreme light sensitivity, nausea and sound sensitivity, those who've had it know what I am talking about, a migraine is so painful and almost untreatable. Sleep is the only I've had that works, but I digress.
This newer experience is much different. I was just working normally, feeling alright; when suddenly my vision fractured, it was like looking through a kaleidoscope, and there was extreme light as well around the edges of my vision. I could see well enough through "tunnel" vision forward, but through each eye and mostly to the right side, there was a bright pixel like light streaking across my sight, like a light filled veil fell across my vision. When I closed my eyes it was still there, and each eye saw the same thing when I closed them one at a time... so I don't think it was an outside influence.
It only lasted an hour this time, and other than feeling disoriented it didn't hurt until after it was over and then it just hurt like crazy in the center of my forehead, but it was treateable with tylenol. I was at work this time and tried to hide what was happening so people didn't think I was nuts- but what if I had been driving? I am afraid that some head injuries I had as a child may be affecting me, I've gone blind during migraines and that is terrifying to experience.... so I thought it may have something to do with that. But I've seen specialists and had the usual tests and they just give me pills to make the pain go away- but we've never discovered what is happening with my eyes and brain.
Has this happend to anyone else? Does anyone know of this occuring? It's scary but I am trying to have faith that all happens for a reason. Any help would be wonderful, thanks so much, all. Have a wonderful day!
