About Me: Male, 58, Kenosha, WI, member since Jul 2012
I am a 55 y/o male with celiac disease and persistent ocular migraine who now is developing a swallowing problem. This occurs at night. It use to be only 3 to 4 hours after strenuous workouts at the gym on nights that I would have a drink or 2. Which of course means
[More] Friday nights because I never have any alcoholic beverage if I have to work the next day. The condition is worsening to the point that I'm experiencing the problem, though to a lesser extent, on nights when I'd had no workouts earlier or had any alcoholic beverages. The Ocular migraines come in the form of bouts of double vision and dizziness or in a giant scotoma that cover the lower 3 quarters of vision like a curtain being drawn. usually in the left eye but has occurred infrequently on the Right. Other times it will occur as smaller multiple roaming scotomas and last for a half an hour or more. The first type with the double vision and dizziness is the scariest, while it is very short in duration like the second type, it sometimes hits like a volcanic eruption and feel very devastating especially while driving. I wont drive long distances anymore. It never occurs in short distance driving for some reason.
