So.... last Friday was extremely stressful for me. I lost all the vision across the right and bottom of my right eye. With my daughter injured and me unable to drive, I wasn't able to get into the doctor until today. The blur had receded to just along the bottom of my eye by Saturday night. Well, I was diagnosed with complex migraines a good two decades ago. Now they're saying this may be a complication of the complex migraines. That it may or may not ever get any better or worse. So I get another brain mri. Can't say I'm very hopeful that it'll ever get better. So, learning to live with a big blur on my lower right eye. Scared, so scared of the thought of being unable to drive. We tried that. It didn't work. So... I will just keeping squinting and stop thinking, eh?

That's terrifying! I certainly hope this is just temporary, how scary!

We all need an exorcist! Our luck has gone from bad to worse!

@Tak , that sounds so scary! My sister and I both get chronic migraines, and when she was a teenager there was a time when the migraine made her "lose" vision in her left eye.

Luckily, she still has vision; it's just that the migraine made her feel like she couldn't see out of it (hooray for migraines stimulating different areas in your brain and causing a ruckus in there). She got switched to a different migraine medication and hasn't had auras that bad since.

I've still got the blind spot on the bottom of my right eye, so chances are high that it's here to stay. :confused: with the complex migraines I don't even feel extra pain, just pressure. I've had too many concussions, so it's all messed up inside my head.
