Experienced a different kind of migraine and it's worrying me. About a week ago I was just buying something at the local shop when I looked up to take my change to see half my view in my left eye was distorted, flashing bright lights etc. Now normally when I get migraine the aura will start small, get bigger, then smaller before headache sets in.
It took me aback and I made my way home to sleep it off. However this time the lights (aura) didn't go. Thumping headache which carried on and on.
The next day no difference so I went to local A & E. Had bloods taken and CAT scan. Results came back normal. Went to Urgent Eye Care, had drops in eyes and was told I didn't have detached retina.
Felt a little better and sight was much better but still flashing lights at side of vision. Day 2 (evening) a lot of flashing lights but head pain subsided.
Day 3 / 4 still flashing lights but no headache. Went for walk and was very tired quickly.
Day5 felt better in self but still lights at side of vision.
Went back to Dr's today who have refered me back to the eye clinic.
A migraine and it's effects have never gone on this long before.
Very worrying. Vision still not back to the level it was.
