Yes, I have had that--with my last ON attack. You probably should see an opthamologist.
I wanted to say that its good to see you! So, is your computer back, or are you using someone else's? Hope you'll be around more.
I haven't had the flickering light; just a kind of jittery vision, especially when I'm first waking up or really tired.
I think that seeing an opthalmologist is a really good idea. I would report such a thing to my neurologist, too, if I had one. Hopefully I'll have one in a few months. Luckily, I haven't had any new symptoms.
Take good care of yourself,
Welcome back. Will you be calling the Dr.?
I have the flickering light-just as you described. I had a biopsy done this week, ordered by my rheumatologist, for Giant Cell Arteritis. It a condition of inflammed arteries in the brain. If it doesn't turn out that I have that, I'm calling my neurologist to see if he will recommend a neuro opthomologist. Did I get that right? My opthomologist told me there was nothing wrong with the optic nerve, but my neurologist did say that there was a problem. Please get it checked out, Charley.
I remember telling the nurse when I made the appointmentonthe first of June,but i can't remember if i specifically told the dor. I know that is bad....when I am "on a trip" (as we say) I don't remembertings too well. My neuro is an opthoneuro. I see my regular neurologist next month. I will be sure to tell her. It went away with the steroids in June, and it has only been back when I was extreamlytired last week.
OUr computer is back; they had to wipe the hard drive clean. They said that the mother board is on its final legs. I am backing up anything important. We are trying to sell the house and don't really have enough time to look for another one. I really don't want to let go of the mony too......
That's exactly the first sx that I ever had. Last July after a hot day and run. Followed by hand numbness. LIke you said, doesn't last long. NO pain, neuroopth said no optic neuritis. Still occasionally have it or a flashing light in left eye. Always in left never right.
I am happy th hear that someone else has had this. Sorry, for you though! If I read for a long while this happens too.
