Hi everyone. I haven't posted in a while because my grandson was born on April 7th and have been busy with them. Everything went fine until we found out he had ABO Jaundice. Everything is almost normal now, thank God.

Anyway, this morning I woke up with what seemed to cover a small area in my vision in my left eye. It was like I had a spot of blindness, no pain. Then it was like I couldn't focus with either eye. Plus I had like a flashing of light in my lower left field of vision. Again no pain. It was like a migraine was coming on, but didn't make it to the headache. Now it's cleared up. I have been in a flare-stress with the new g-baby, temperature & weather changes, allergies, my period, etc. My BP was normal. I didn't feel any pain anywhere at the time all this was going on...just freaky scary. I've had no changes in my meds, foods etc.

Thanks in advance,
Cathie

Cathie,
I was going to say migraine, but then I read you said it was like that without the pain, so I guess you know all about that. My mom used to get the aura phase without the headache. A neuro I went to years ago said that migraine isn't an isolated event, it's a syndrome....so I'd guess that could be it, but then again, who knows? I hope it's gone away, never to return.

Congratulations on the blessed event!

Thank you Debbie. It's gone now, thank God! I feel good, but with some pain in my body so I'm just taking it easy today. If it happens again I'm calling my doc. The weather, my cycle and everything in between affects what hurts, feels off, etc. It may just be something I'm going through, but I will be making phone calls if it happens again.

Take care,
Cathie

I've actually gotten the aura without the migraine - it sounds exactly like the auras I get. It's a pretty scary feeling. Congrats on your new Grandbaby!

There is something called an Opthalmic Migraine or an Ocular Migraine. It sounds like you may have had something similar happen. They are more common in people who have regular migraines.

I don't have regular migraines, but I have had Opthalmic ones. The first time I had one it really freaked me out, but it went away quickly. I've only had 2-3 in the past few years.

I've gotten that before as well.  My Neuro said it was a "Silent Migraine".  It's scary but it certainly beats the headache of a migraine.
