Hello everyone! First timer here! I started to experience ocular migraines as a young adult and I am still having them today. I start to notice my vision is blurry in a certain area, then comes the black spot and eventually the zig zag lines. I’ve just kinda let them pass and continue with my day. It seemed as though they increased during pregnancy (assuming it has to do with hormones).
since last December I have experienced three instances of memory loss. I’ve had a CT scan done on my brain, because I was afraid I had some kind of tumor.. (I’ve also had my eyes checked) but I’ve been searching on the internet and came across migraines and memory loss being linked for some.
The most recent incident was two days ago. I had a moment of extreme deja vu (but of a dream I’ve had before) and within 20 minutes I felt confused while looking at photos in my phone. I felt like they were all totally foreign and I had never seen them before (I was editing them for nearly 10 minutes and suddenly they all looked new).
I became very afraid, then my anxiety kicked in and I was severely hot. I had tingling in my fingers on my right hand, so I laid down in hopes I could relax.. I never have extremely painful headaches that accompany my episodes but sometime I have a dull headache that lasts for a day or so..Since then I have had lingering dizziness (nothing too crazy – I’m not falling or anything) and I feel a little off..
Does this sound like migraine symptoms? Apparently it’s hard to diagnose migraines because every Dr I have seen doesn’t really say much about it.
