    Hi there Susan no i don't recall that. But i am a migraine sufferer. Since i was a child. I must admit since i have stopped eating all types of chocolate, avocados which i love, and walnuts. I have not had those zigzags. But if i get stressed i have a migraine pain on my right temple, or the other side of my head, around the top of my forehead. I have not had the zig zags in a long while now. I am 55 years old now. But i also have Horner Syndrome in my left eye. The left pupil goes bigger than my right pupil. More noticeable when i am tired. That came about, after the death of my youngest sister last year. It made me very ill.

    Hi Susan,

    I get something similar to what you are describing. It doesn't just happen at night, sometimes during the day. I think it happens more during vasodilations aka hot flashes (I don't actually get hot). My vision has gone completely haywire since entering perimenopause.
