ok- so i am almost 3 months off all abx and antimalarials and on limited cowden herbs only-samento and cumanda.
yesterday morning i had flashing lights for at least 10 minutes, maybe 15. at first i thought i was imagining my vision pulsing lighter and darker but it was not my imagination. i walked from my car into an appointment and the whole time, from car to walking to sitting in a waiting room, light was pulsing from darker/shadowy to light. it finally went away when i went into a dark room(i had a sonogram).
very wierd! anyone else have this? is this lyme? something else? it has never happened before, but it was very strange and scary.

Lili I have had stuff like this happen before. Often when I am on my laptop it looks like my screen goes black or shuts off for a split second now and then. I don't know if I am imagining it or if it really happens. lol

It is one of the many symptoms of lyme and coinfections. I think it is caused by the negative effects of the germs on the blood vessels and tissues of the eye/retina. I have read here on HW that it goes away with successful disease treatment. I have had this symptom for at least 3 yrs, so I do not have the experience to say when and if it goes away. I will be glad when it is gone! Best wishes. bablymers mom
