Hello Ladies,

I know I have been on here before about Visual Snow....I am just wondering if any women out there is suffering from Static in their whole vision.It looks like an out of tune tv...that you are looking through..not sure if it has anything to do with peri/meno.....I am scared that this is a Neurological Condition been to so many drs. and Specialist as well....please let me know if you experience this...not to be confused with blurry or double vision...

    Hi Shana,

    We have spoke before. I started having static after my first migraine aura 8 months ago. I just had a brain MRA. Previously, I had a CT and MRI. I go to see the neurologist again in the beginning of June. I will let you know if he tells me anything interesting. Recently, I have also been dizzy. It never ends!

      Yes, it is all the time. I find my vision is worse right after my period. I believe it it caused by the rise in estrogen. I have spoken to my neuro about the static and he just tells me it it unusual and related to migraines. He also told me that he sees lots of women my age (44) for the first time.

    Yes I do Shana. My senses are extremely heightened- Smell, awful taste in mouth, vision is staticy fuzzy but bright at the same time if tgat makes sense and i get those floaters. You also posted about the internal shaking- I asked if you compared it to like having the chills which i feel all the time but i think i understand what your describing and i have actually felt that in my head a bunch of times while asleep it feels like im having a seizure in my sleep if i had to describe it, along with very vivid dreams/ nightmares. Went for brain mri months ago but i was afraid to get the contrast so i did it wthout and report said it was normal. Couldnt feel anymore opposite of normal:(

    DI experienced the out of tunetv vision and it scared me to DEATH! I was at the PC and well at first I thought it was the light behind me because at first I seen wavy lines lots of them and it kept going across both eyes well then the wavy lines kept up mixed with the snowy and mixed of other lines, snow and just flat out full blown static of all sorts well I JUMPED up from my PC in the worst panic ever I ran to my bed room and set on bed and it was still there I could only see the snow , wavy lines and distortions I thought I had a brain tumor /stroke or something I ran to kitchen to drink water and help on to the kitchen chair and grabbed peanutbutter just in case I was going into a low sugar coma (no I am not on diabetic meds or anything) Anyways this lasted like a couple of mins or so I'm thinking at least 5 mins. ANd then one time I experienced this weird thing I woke up that morning and started to walk down my hallway and my vision was like very narrow and the hall looked much smaller like very bad narrowing and really long looking like I was in a long small narrow tunnel and that lasted awhile as well! Don't know if any one can related to my two scary eye issues.

    Have this all the time. It was one of my 1st symptoms. Lately, I see stars when I turn my head. That would happen as I was getting out of the shower, and I would have to sit on the toilet until it stopped. It's not SO bad since no period for almost 2 years, but still get dizzy and off balance. My feet are very sore every day, and I sometimes throw up from the dizziness. This is SO awful!!!
