Since I was 15 I have had migraines that produce visual aura, the zig zag lines for approx 30 minutes followed by an intense headache. However - Starting 3 months ago i have had a different type of ocular migraine - I will see a colored spot or blob (definitely not floaters, i already have those and know what they are) These blobs/spots occur in alternating eyes and sometimes in both eyes for about 5-10 min then go away, however these episodes can last throughout the day several times. And I've had them almost everyday for the past 2 months. There is no headache associated with seeing the colored spots however i do have a desk job where i am staring at the computer 7 hours straight, and this seems to have started and worsened the ocular migraines. I went to a headache specialist yesterday and he said this condition was not indicative of a migraine and that I need to have an MRI performed to rule out anything such as a tumor,etc..
Additionally I have had a retinal tear in one eye approximately 3 months ago, Went to see my retinal surgeon and he told me it had nothing to do with the actual eye itself and that it HAD to be nurological. I also have intense neck pain from sitting at my desk, not sure if this is related. This is driving me crazy and I'm slightly worried it is serious.
