I have these weird distubances where I see what I can only descibe as a prism or kalidiscope. Very colorful and squiggly shapes. I was told years ago that this could be visual migranes? I can actually tell when I will have an episode because my eyes feel funny, like crossed and I feel off balance. the episodes last from 1 minute to sometimes 5. I have also begun to have pain with them but not a severe headache just a dull ache. I should explain that I also have PV and I take hydrea to control my red cells. I have been tested for everything related to my eyes. To see if i had a blockage or a artery problem. Could this be migranes starting or maybe just because my blood is so thick at times?
