Since last semester I've had constant daily migraines but the thing that seems to bother me the most, besides all the tension and pain, is my vision. My eyes seem so tense and dont really get red at all but there is so much pressure in the back of my head that, the only way I can describe, is it appears almost like a film of pressure in my field of vision. And gives me blind spots. But the tension doesn't go away even when the worst part of the migraine seems to have ceased. This means that my vision is still affected. It's been like this for a really long time now and there has only been a few minutes within months that my vision returns to normal for a few seconds. I normally have bad vision for far away but this is different.. Its shaky and almost like there's so much pressure behind my eyes. Is this common? I am also suffering from depression and anxiety but this all started with the migraines.. I've been in and out of the doctor's office and neurologist and he claims its a serotonin imbalance.. But this visual thing is really bothering me. On a bad day, with the anxiety, depression, and the worst possible migraine.. I feel so overwhelmed that I think I could seriously pass for clinically insane.. Its almost like I'm watching a movie of my life going by my eyes. I know this sounds a little too drastic.. but can anyone relate at all? lol. please?
I just need some kind of assistance, I don't really get the vision thing as a visual aura, its almost like a constant thing. I might sound completely nuts, but.. I WAS ONCE NORMAL! mad   This might be the wrong forumn to post about the other things but I just want to know about the visual disturbance in relation to the migraine and tension.. if anyone gets that?
I have a friend that went through the same exact thing.. this is the only hope I have that I am not going insane.
Any comment will suffice.

hey- you are not crazy! visual disturbances are part of it for many.

i get an aura- it's like little sparkles everywhere. also am screwed if it comes when i am away from home at night and have to drive. oncoming headlights kill me. i am super sensitive to light. my eye will water on the effected side. i wish there was a definitive answer for you but everyone's migraine seems to be different in their own way. my eyes get so sensitive that i cannot wear mascara!

hang in there as you are so not alone in your pain and frustration!
