:confused: I experienced a strange episode where suddenly I saw coke ring shapes with flashing lights in the right upper corner of my vision. A few minutes later there were blurred shapes like worms that moved across my field of vision and where they were I could see color but no definition. It lasted over an hour and 30 minutes into it I got a sharp pain at the site of a bump this is still left from a bad car accident in 1990. It went gradually behind my right eye and down the bridge of my nose and cheek bone. I had migraines from age 4 until 37 and I have experienced lights before an event but not like this. They were blurred twinkle lights that made it hard to read but were not bright or flashing and no blurred worm like shapes. Also those migraines were always on the left and side and brought nausea. Anyone have an ideas - it would be most appreciated.

  • Yes, go to a neuro and get brain scan done, to besure nothing is getting blocked.. It could be your bump/scar has thickened and is pushing on some nerves. They sound like aura migraines. My aura migraines do not make me have nausia all the time. Good luck.

  • I had a similar experience with what appeared to be lightning in the corner of my eye and a black cobweb which kept appearing in the same eye. I contacted my eye doctor. After examining my eye he said he thought it was a condition in which the retina is trying to tear away from the back of my eye. This can lead to a detached retina and is very serious. He told me if I saw the cobweb again or a gray curtain or veil, to call immediately any time of the day. If you look up "detached retina" on your search engine you will find more information on this.
