I am hoping someone is experiencing the same or similar symptoms to myself. I am 45 years old and female, back in January I had an incident where I lost the sight in my left eye for a matter of minuites. This was followed by large squiggly lines (again only breifly) which then turned into what I would descrive as a swarm of bees. The bees lasted for about 10 days.
I was first taken to A&E where they did tests and refered me to an eye specialist who tested my retina, optic nerve etc and found no problems. A few weeks later I went for an MRI scan and the consultant there said he thought it was a migraine but was surprised it lasted so long.
Since this 1st occasion I have had a few other occasions of what I would call light swarms of bees or floaters but nothing too server, until my brothers wedding about 10 days ago, where I had a few glasses of wine, stayed up slightly later than normal and went to the disco with flashing lights. During the night staying at the hotel I had a terrible headache ( I put that down to the alcohol). when I woke up in the morning opened the curtain and went into the bright white bathroom. My vision was like having a bowl of water and dropping drops of food colouring into the bowl and then the colouring vanished and it would do it again continuously for about an hour. Since this I have had One dark floater continuously, it moves with my eye but if I stare really hard it will vanish, I also have on the right side of the floater a squiggly line. On several occassions I have also had tingling in my face. It is beginning to get me down simply because I have no idea if it will go, or what caused it in the first place, I am not 100% convinced it is a migraine either. I have a telephone appointment with my GP but thats not until Thursday PM.
