I only experience visual snow when looking at busy patterns & darker objects. Also not all the time. Is that normal? Sep 13, 2017

        Well I don't refer to the fact that you only experience VS when looking at these patterns/objects, but studies have shown that more than 60% of people with VS also have tinnitus. I know many people on this forum with VS, most of them have had this as long as they remember. I also have VS but only since the beginning of this year due to an infection, do you have VS as long as you know?

        No, I've started to notice it just after I learnt what exactly is VS. I am not quite sure if it is VS. I don't see little black/white dots, it looks like a jumping/bouncing vision or maybe VS with reaaaally large dots. Sky looks clear, also when I close my eyes, it is absolute darkness. I don't know. @Rubenslash

        @Rubenslash It disappears when I look at objects from a closer distance. Maybe something to do with a focusing problem. My mother and BF also say they see it too, but I am not sure we see the same thing.

        @Michael Leigh Oh, that would be very lovely and I could also send you a sample of mixed pickle as a bonus :). They make me drool already now. But I have to wait until November to open the bottles :/

        Although I like hot sauces, I think I need my head to taste those delicious pickles. Lol.

        For the last and final time the term is a saying a (euphemism) it does not mean to "skin a cat". I'm sorry if you don't understand I'm sure other people would. I have a pet cat and would never dream of skinning her I assure you. lol

        I did suspect Paul was making fun of me Foncky and I even telephoned Glynis as she's a brit and we had a really good laugh about it. I explained that it has nothing to do with skinning a cat, yet Paul was convinced otherwise which led me to believe he knew all along what I really meant. I just played along....Hope you are keeping well.

        Maybe it seems like that because you focus on your T. too much. Sometimes im in a silent room and think: the T. doesn't sound so loud today, than i focus on it and it sounds louder again
