Hey there. I'm hoping someone has had something similar happen. A few weeks ago, I noticed a flicker in my left eye peripheral vision. I thought something external was blinking then realized it was my eye! It's semi-circle in shape and somewhat blurry and blinks fast. And happens only in peripheral.
For the last few weeks it's been happening more and more, although I'm noticing it more and more so my awareness is high. Sometimes when I'm busy or my mind is pre-occupied with something else, I've gone three days without it happening. Then when I think about it or am stressed it begins again. The eye doctor saw nothing but a healthy eye and the brain doctor did all the tests and came to the same conclusion. They both seem to think ocular migraine with aura without headache. But once mine starts, it hard to stop it. It pretty much continues sporadically throughout the day.
I am getting an MRI and EEG this week so we'll see. It's very scary and I notice it generally begins in moments of stress. Important note is I am an extremely high stress/high anxiety person, very very. But I kept myself very low stress yesterday (meditated, walked, napped) and nothing happened until about 6:30pm so I feel like I have some level of control in a way. But because I am who I am, I immediately think: brain tumor, blood clot, MS, epilepsy, strokes, etc.
Anyways, anyone out there have something similar?
