I"m very concerned about a friend who just wrote to me about a phenomenon she experienced. I was hoping you might shed some light on it.
She has had breast cancer for five years...not getting better...and is on several chemo drugs, etc....
She just told me that last night she experienced what appeared to be HUGE floaters , almost like chevrons and lace, and a partial blindness in PART of her left eye. It came and went and the whole thing lasted about 20 minutes, causing her great anxiety. She was so drained she had to lie down each time. At the end, her head got really 'hot', things got 'black' momentarily and she was exhausted. Her eye doctor found nothing wrong, but suggested it was 'non painful migraine'. Never heard of it.
Might it be medication related? Also, I would not share this with her, but I'm more concerned that it might be the cancer spreading to the brain..and it's scaring me to death. Do you have any ideas?
