Background: I am a male, fit, athletic, never smoked, healthy (no family
history of strokes, diabetes, heart problems, MS). about 5 years ago I
experienced a total temporary blindness in my Left eye that lasted about 5
minutes. I got scared, but since it went away I did not do anything about
it. During these past 5 years I had many more occurrences of the temporary
blindness (always in the left eye). I went an optometrist, Neuro
Ophthalmologist and Neurologist . They did not find anything, suggested
a possible migraines, however I never even experienced a real headache.
After that, in most cases the temporary blindness came anytime A week
ago I got blind in my right eye again, and it happened 3 times in Month.
I went to see a Cardiologist he had me tasted for PFO and i have one .

1. Should i get the PFO Closed?
2. Should i go on Coumadin?
3. Asprin is not working
