It is all very well having a clear MRI, as I did, but today I have my third ever migraine. See what OSPF has driven me to!
Sadly, whilst at this stage I simply have visual distortion growing slowly, and making it impossible to read what I have typed, I know that soon I will feel like crap.
I want to file a bug report with my DNA please.
This was a visual effect starting small in centre of vision. Initially I realised I could not see the letter in the middle of the word I was looking at.
It gradually grew moved in to a sort of C shape with top of C in centre, so some above centre, but almost all of the effect left vision. This made reading anything hard. I could see letters off centre, but that is very difficult to read.
It gradually grew, like looking through broken glass and flickering at the edge of the shape.
Eventually it started to grow more and so the centre of my vision started to clear, the C shape spreading left and out, with top left and bottom left of vision affected.
It reached the edges of my vision and then vanished suddenly.
To be clear, this was not in my eye or eyes as such, but in my vision. i.e. the effect was not only visible via one eye. There are migraine effects people can get that are related to the eye, but this was different.
Apparently it is called a Scintillating Scotoma
My left eye seemed odd for a moment - sort of tunnel vision but no clear edges, and then was fine.
Now I am feeling "spaced out". The effect is clearly moving on from just my vision.
My expectation is feeling like crap for a few hours now.
I went to bed - fine next day.
