For the past few days my eyes (my vision really) has been flickering as if someone was dimming lights real fast (or as if I was blinking without blinking)? What could this be? I have a history of migraine with aura but haven't had one in a few months. There's no pain associated (though some anxiety),but I have been photosensitive since the migraines (purple blinking "star pinpoints)...vision static/snow). There are cats in the house...could it be toxoplasmosis? I'm afraid to even find out. Maybe I'm just going crazy? Anybody had a similar experience? At first I thought it was the light bulb (and in fact my roommate and I both saw the flicker at the same time and he assured me his lights do that). But I saw it today in daylight in my room (no light on)...and when I woke up even in the dark, the darkness blinked at me (eyes closed). Help!
