I am 39, and have had migraines since I was 18. About 8 years ago, after a particularly bad migraine, it seemed that my peripheral vision wasn't as it should be. Since that time, my peripheral vision seems to get worse every 6 months or so. I've been to many different doctors, and all tell me my eyes are good. I also have a slight tremor in my arms, for which I had been taking propanolol (beta blocker). Because I was tired all the time, my doctor took me off the propanolol and tried me on primadone, which is another med used for tremors. I woke up the next day in another world, but worst of all, my vision was way off - I could see, but only tunnel vision-like. It has been that way ever since (about 3 months). I'm told I have 20/15 vision in my left eye, and 20/20 in my right. But when I look at things, I don't see them as I should - it's hard to describe, but it's like I'm very unaware of my surroundings. I'm extremely depressed about this, especially since no one is able to give me an answer. My eyes seem to be slowly closing in from the outside. I also have an extreme amount of flashers and floaters. This all just makes me want to stay asleep so I don't "see" any of it. Has anybody else ever experienced this?
