Shaky Vision/Spinning Feeling

Last night my 10 yr old son was lying in bed and started have "shaky vision" (in both eyes) and asked me if the bed was shaking, when he closed his eyes, he felt like he was spinning. This lasted for about 2 minutes. Before it stopped he became very anxious and was breathing heavy because it scared him. He does suffer from migraines (about 2-3 a month) The migraines usually begin with pain around one or both eyes. If we don't get him some Motrin ASAP it goes into a full blow headache and nausea. Usually the Motrin will knock it out quickly if we got it to him in time. He's been having these migraines since he was 5 yrs old. Drs have done several scans over the years and can't find anything "wrong". He is under the care of a children's neurologist for the last 5 yrs.

I am wondering if this "eye shaking" is related to his migraines or something new. Should I worry about this or wait to see if it happens again? This is the first time this eye shaking has happened.

Thank you,

Hi!
I am sorry to hear about your son’s medical problems. If the shaky vision was followed by a headache then yes, it can be an aura of migraine. Other causes could be poor eye sight, low or high blood pressure, severe anemia, low blood sugar, temporal arteritis, hyperthyroidism, ear problems, cervical nerve compression, anxiety and panic attack or benign intracranial hypertension.  This needs a comprehensive investigation. Please discuss with his doctor as soon as you can. Take care!
