    So I literaly went blind lastnight.

    I was at work and started reading a coupon that a coustomer handed me. My left eye just started going blured. Kinda like when you get a picture taken, only it kept getting worse. For about 3 hours I could not see anything out my left eye. I was like Then it started clearing up but it felt like I had a needle through my eye into my brain.

    After talking to my mother I was informed that migrains run in our family. so now I have this to look forward to. YAY.

    It was scarry. I was freaking out.


    Anyone have this happen?

    I get migraines fairly regularly and my vision is very poor, I expect to be completely blind someday. I have never had this specifically happen, but I can feel your pain

    Yes, I suffer from migraines, but they have been fairly under control the past couple of years. I went through a period when I would have migraines a dozen times or more each month.

    Went to Kaiser, saw a neurologist, did preventative medication, prescription pain killers, then I could not tell one migraine from the next. The preventative medication was awful. I would feel doped up even on 20 milligrams of the medication. After that experience, I tried to manage the pain with OTC pain relievers and natural methods. I know of some people who use marijuana to help relieve the pain.

    There are many types of migraines. I get the ones with the head pain, but also the eye thingys, aka auras, which are their own type of migraine. They happen rarely now, but I have noticed that they come in cycles. I am in the middle of a dormant cycle.

    Migraines run in my family. My mom gets them as did her father. I am really hoping that my kids didn't inherit the migraine gene from me.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    I know how scary it must've been and can really relate to what happened to you.

    As a teen and in my early 20s I suffered from "classic" migraines. It runs in my family as well. Mine always began with a disoriented feeling and then my peripheral vision would begin to go and there would be auras, or swirling colors in place of vision. By the time my vision was down to just what was directly in front of me the pounding headache would come on and I became very sensitive to light. Had to get in a dark room and lie down with the head and nausea. Luckily, mine would run for only a few hours. My partner has them also and they can last for days. Like mamabot, he can't tolerate the medication either so suffers through them with Extra Strength Excedrin.

    I sought treatment and found that many foods can trigger them so I changed my diet and haven't suffered with one in years. There are some very good websites that list foods that can kick off a migraine. You might want to check them out. All the best!

    Tunnel vision, yuck, i am so sorry, I know exactly what you mean. I have gotten it so bad that I can only see out of a pinhole line of site.

    best tip I've got, laydown in a dark room (as soon as you notice it coming on) with an icepack on the back of your neck (where your head and neck meet)

    asprin and a cup of strong coffee ironicly is the best "medicine" for me (something about thining the blood and constricting the vains)...not really sure why it works but the combination of all these things works really well

    I've suffered from the same thing for years. I know when mine is about to start as I start feeling like I'm hung over.

    I call it an aura, it is usually in my left eye. If I can't get some meds fast enough it will progress and my left hand/arm will go numb. Within 1/2 hour the pain hits. Luckily I know the onset and can prevent a full blown mirgaine 95% of the time.

    My left arm goes numb all the time. Well. not really numb, but more of it looses feeling. Like I can flick it, or poke it with a needle or whatever and not feel anything. Then about 15 mins later it comes back and its fine for a month or two.

    I had it checked out a few years ago and the Dr. said they didnt find anthing wrong, that it could just be a blood flow problem.




    Blood flow problem :confused: Shouldn't that be something to throw up a red flag????
