So I had a weird experience last night, and I'm wondering if anyone has any insight.
It started with blurry vision at the bottom of my line of sight in my right (good) eye. When looking straight at anything, my vision was clear, it was just blurry along the bottom edge of my vision. It lasted about 5 minutes, then migrated to the top of my line of vision. At that point, there were also some spots and a wavy white light pattern for maybe a minute, also in the top portion of my vision. Then my vision cleared up and everything was normal. At the time, I thought it was just the one eye having the problem, but thinking about it later, my vision in my other eye is so bad normally that I'm not sure I'd have noticed if it was affected, too.
About 10-15 minutes later, I got a headache. Not a particularly bad headache, just a headache. I took some Tylenol, and it really wasn't bad at all.
Later in the evening, my eyes became extra sensitive to light. Like all the lights in my apartment seemed brighter than usual, and my eyes felt a little sore. Actually, my legs felt a little sore for no obvious reason, too. And my stomach felt a little "off". Not quite nauseous, but like it was heading in that direction. But that was about the time I went to bed, and I felt normal again in the morning.
Today, I was fine most of the day, but in the evening, I started getting minor headaches again, and my eyes felt a little sore again. But no blurriness or light sensitivity like yesterday.
From what I've read on the internet, it sounds like this might be migraines. The blurred vision sounds similar to descriptions of what some people experience before a migraine headache, and it did clear up for me before the headache came, like those descriptions. And light sensitivity and nausea are possible migraine side effects. I've never had migraines before, so this is new territory for me. I'm really hoping that's all it is, and that it's not something worse.
I've made an appointment for tomorrow with my eye doctor, just to be safe, and I already had an appointment with my primary doctor for next week for other reasons. I was just wondering if anyone here had any experience with this sort of thing.
