Wavy lines auras and persistence after episode
Hi, I am a 23 year old female. I exercise 6 times a week vigourously. Middle of June I came from from long day at work, and had about 5 heavy grocery bags in my hand and was carrying them inside. I suddenly felt light headed, dizzy, heart beating, sweating, felt like I was going to pass out. I stood in front of the ac and drank gatorade and felt better. However, within about 5 minutes or so in my right eye out of peripheral I started noticing wavy lines, like looking through cracked glass or water. I freaked, called the eye doctor who said it sounded like an occular migraine and took advil. It went away after about an hour, but then I had a terrible headache and felt dizzy.  A week later in the morning about an hour after exercising I noticed the wavy line again in my right eye peripheral vision.  I took advil and it went away after about a half hour, slight headache/dizziness followed.  I was fine for all of July. Then this past weekend, August 9th, in the morning about a half hour after working out I noticed the wavy lines again i my right eye peripheral vision. I took advil, went away after about 20 minutes and very slight headache followed. However, since then my right eye feels wierd. i can't really describe it, except it doesn't seem as clear as my left and kind of feels like perihperal vision in right eye is foggy. At times I also think I see the "visual snow" that people make reference to. Been to opthmalogist who said eyes look fine. I do have contacts and astigmatism in right eye.  Does this sound like a typical occular migraine with aura? If so, why would I all of a sudden be getting them? Could they be triggered by exercise? Why do you think my right eye still feels "off?" Thanks
