I’m not feeling well today. I’ve had a headache all day and it’s getting worse. Even more troubling is that along with the headache I can barely see from my right eye!
Yep .. I’m having those nasty aural migraine symptoms again. I’ve had migraines since I was about 12 years old .. thankfully though they seemed to stop when I was 25, but they’ve come back in the last few years and now, since July, I’ve been having these optical or aural migraines.
Usually when I have eye symptoms I don’t have an actual headache …. not pain wise anyway … the migraine sometimes comes later. The vision problems in the last few months have usually only lasted for fifteen to thirty minutes – but today the vision problems have lasted all day and there’s no sign of them going away.
It’s almost like I have a translucent object in the center of my right eyes vision. I can see through it but it makes all my vision blurry. Kind of like those pop up ads that say “click here” on some websites that come up just as you’re trying to read something. LOL
I’m seeing a doctor on Friday at the hospital about the numbness and odd occasional burning sensations in my lower left thigh (started in December) to see if it’s coming from a nerve in my back or my hip. I think the doctors a neurologist and if he is I think I might try to talk to him about these aural migraines while I’m there.
Hopefully these vision problems really are just aural headaches but it’s troubling when you start getting new symptoms. I’d certainly be happy if the doctor I see on Friday suggests I get a CatScan or MRI.
