I've never had a migraine before. But I think I am having one now. Yesterday afternoon I had an episode of sudden dizziness, visual impairment, intense nausea, upset stomach, and hot flashes. Then the left side of my head started hurting. The pain hasn't been that bad. But the dizziness and visual impairment has continued. I woke up this morning, and my right eye still isn't functioning correctly. Are the visual symptoms supposed to last that long? It's quite annoying and somewhat scary. It's like the focus in my right eye is off. Things are a little blurry. It's hard to explain. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
I suffered horribly from migraines as a ****. Yes, there was dizziness, blurry eyes, extreme nausea, and extreme pain for me; everyday. It very well could be a migraine, but your continued visual impairment leads me to believe that your Lyme disease is pretty active right now. I’ve gone through this recently, and researched visual impairments and Lyme disease. What I found was an article that linked MS to NMO (Neuromyelitis optica). If you believe as I do that nearly every neurological disease IS Lyme disease, this is most likely what’s happening, IMO. There is a simple blood test that can test for this disorder. My LLMD opted not to do it, and instead agreed that It’s Lyme related. I didn’t have pain with it, but everyone is different, and Lyme disease reacts differently in each one of us. Blurriness was the most problematic symptom for me. There are parts of my eyes that I can’t see out of, and glasses don’t help. I hope I’ve been of some help. You’re not alone, and frankly I’m scared of it too.
