 have been having serious migraines for 4 months and now I am losing my vision when I have an attack. I asked my Neuro if there were other sufferers with the same issue and he told me that I am the only one (an exception to the rule)!! :( I have had migraine on and off for 8 yrs but they went away for about 2 yrs with no issues. All of a sudden they came back with a vengence I pass out and loose complete vision in my right eye and tunnel vision in my left. I saw my Dr. yesterday and he told me that my right eye is pulling to the left and that my vision has declined in 4 months. He says it is nothing to be concerned about but I am freaked out.... Does anyone have this issue and if so what have you done to cope? I have tried so many meds (I wrote all of them down which came out to 2 1/2 pages) and as of right now they have me on Depakote & Verapimill.. They make me so sick and they keep increasing it??? I am at the end of my rope and now they are saying I will be on disablity longer if not forever. cry

You are by far not the only 1 going through this. There are others who when they get migraines their vision lessons, maybe your doctor just don't know of such cases. But if you have gone with this pain for so many yrs, you need a relief and now.

I'm no doctor to be sure, but, I've dealt with my own migraines for over twenty years (mine are related to Crohn's disease though). I have only recently --like the past 5 years -- had Ocular Migraines which are extraordinary in the visual effects they bring on. I would wonder though if your right eye is pulling out of alignment and your vision has decreased significantly in just 4 mnths time (you didnt say if these happen only during an attack or are persistent even apart from migraines--an important distinction), perhaps it would be time to consult a respected ophthalmologist. Good luck. I'll remember you in my prayer. And above all, try not to freak out. the shear anxiety of doing that alone will complicate your situation making it worse and more diffficult to treat than it might otherwise be. Steady and calm. Try some relaxation meditations and techniques it helps with both the high anxiety and the migraines!
