As I have said many times before the best thing about this blog is all the wonderful comments that I receive. The first hand experiences that folks write about is so incredibly important because it shows a side of Meniere’s disease that you hardly ever (never) hear from a doctor. And what is even more important is that on so much of this brings an understanding of what may work to ease or relieve the problems of this disorder.
This week I received a comment from Peggy on ocular migraines...
Saw my ophthalmologist today, and he confirmed that I do have ocular migraines. We talked about going for another MRI, but since I had ocular migraine symptoms before my first MRI, he doesn't think another one would be revealing, and it's been only three years.
Otherwise, he says my eyes are healthy, and since the migraines are pretty rare, I can just treat them by lying down with a cool cloth over my eyes and taking aspirin when I get the symptoms. Medication for the migraines would only make me more dizzy, he thinks. THAT I don't need, LOL!
We have talked about migraines before and how there is a connection it and Meniere’s disease. Vision is another piece of the puzzle with this disorder as well. So it is understandable that ocular migraines could bring about Meniere’s.
I read in Mayoclinic.com that with ocular migraines you might see something like…
- Flashes of Light
- Zigzagging patterns
- Blind spots
- Shimmering spots or stars
