Hello, I’m new to this site and ocular migraines. I’m a 50 year old male, and in the last year started getting ocular migraines, pretty scary until I saw an eye specialist who diagnosed it. I get them every 3 to 6 weeks and normally they last about 30 mins, with the usual visual symptoms, no pain, and then feel slightly weak afterwards for a few hours.
Twice I’ve had them and the weakness continues the next day, and last time it turned into a bug (weak, draggy, sore throat), and this time I’ve just felt draggy for about a week and a half.
I’m guessing that if my body was fighting something when the ocular migraine happened, whatever effects the migraine had on the body could not continue fighting off the bug.
Does anyone else experience this? I’m thinking about returning to my doctor to get it checked out.
