I get these every once in a while, where I get the aura, zigg zagg lines, and a blind spot. Last about 15-30 minutes long. Sometimes I'll get a headache afterwards, sometimes I don't. I brought it up to my eye doctor a few years ago, and he agreed that's all it was. Nothing to worry about, nothing they really can do about it.
So I get one this morning. This one scared me a little more then usual. I think partly because I haven't had one in so long. But I had some zig zag lines, but more of a blind spot off to the right in my right eye. It went away, and I actually do have a headache even. I think lack of sleep triggered it. But the blind spot this time upset me something terrible. I'm having watery D and pain. I keep trying to tell if I still have a blind spot. Driving myself batty. I don't see my eye doctor again until 8/29. That's the soonest I could get in, and I made that appointment a few weeks ago. He's going on a 3 week vacation I guess.
Just seeing if anyone else gets these. I don't think it's Crohn's related necessarily. I've been dealing with some eye redness and itchiness as well, but I attributed it to allergies.
