Dear fellow sufferers,
Thank you for letting me join your forum, this is my first time here.
I am 30 at the moment and a few months ago my long-forgotten teenage migraine attacks with visual and sensory aura came back with an unprecedented frequency. This really started messing with my brain. Nowadays every time I look at words to read on the computer or in a book I can't help testing myself whether I can see all the letters. If any of them "go missing" from my visual field that can mean the start of a visual aura - hours of visual and cognitive impairment, anxiety and pain.
The issue is made worse by the fact that the partial blindness usually starts off-center (usually on the right side), making it harder to tell whether I am growing a blind spot or it's just a floater or the fact I'm trying to use my peripheric vision to read.
I find I can no longer trust my own eyes anymore. For me this is more annoying and anxiety provoking than the headache itself!
Can anyobody relate?
