I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone. I am a member of another message board/forum and there are several people who deal with the same thing. I'm not sure what they take as far as meds are concerned...
Hang in there
I have read some 30+ books on migraine and headaches. There was one that went into pretty good detail on migraine with aura and no pain. I am going to dig through the books and see if I can find it for you. I know I have seen it in at least a few of the books I reviewed.
give me some time...but I will post it here as soon as I find it.
Hang in there...
Yep, they're called ocular migraines. My complicated migraines turned to ocular for about 5 or 6 years, but now they're back to their old tricks again. I was on aspirin therapy and it helped. If I took an extra dose of aspirin when I saw the first signs of distortion, it would decrease the length of the attack.
Hope this is helpful.
I get dancing diamonds too... only they appear after a grey blob obscures one entire field of vision. Then they dance up and out of sight in the upper right quadrant. My neuro says that's classic. Isn't it interesting how one doc gets it and one doc doesn't? I HATE the whole psychosomatic dx... BTDT, but finally found a neuro who takes me seriously.
