At least once I year (Starting at age 13) I've gotten these weird migraines I've come to find out are called ocular migraines (Caused by stress or whatever can trigger a migraine. For me it's extreme stress and lack of sleep) where it starts with a blind spot appearing in your field of vision (You might notice you have trouble focusing your vision on anything) or you start to see this shiny zigzag shape that blinds you either in the middle of your vision or on the outer edges and it lasts for about thirty to forty minutes and then that's when the migraine sets it. It starts off as an ache on one side of your head and then grows to become the worst migraine you've ever had that lasts for the rest of the day and the only escape is sleep, if you can get yourself to sleep that is. And then when you wake up, it feels like your head was ran over by a truck as some point. Strangely enough I had one of those today and class and warned the professor that I may not be able to pay attention to the presentations being given because I couldn't see anything properly and that I might have to leave the class to get to bed. Luckily he was understanding. As soon as the vision distortions stopped I felt the achy feeling start on the right side of my head and was expecting it to increase and thus prepared myself for if I would have to leave... Strangely enough, the pain didn't increase. It just stayed achy, much to my relief. I was able to stay the rest of the class and walk back to my apartment with no trouble and took some light painkiller and was fine an hour later. So that was unexpected. But still, the vision distortions really suck. Anyone else get these or have gotten them? Any ideas besides relieving my stress to combat them or ways to simply get through them?
