Hi, i'm Colleen and 14 years old
It started at the end of spring last year, with what looked like a single floater however it multiplied like a cell and by the summer i had periods of seeing nothing but bright circles, everywhere, which was obviously quite disturbing.
I saw my GP who referred me to an optamologist who confirmed my eyes were fine, no floaters, and she just sent me home saying my anaemia was causing me to see all of this.
After sorting out my anaemia everything was getting worse, i got visual snow, sometimes i see lights like fireflies dashing about and in the dark its like i am hallucinating kind of, patterns of light will spiral grow and dissapear like nothing happened. I went back (after waiting over 3 months for an appointment) who sent me home telling me it will just go away.
As this obviously wasnt going to happen, i pushed to get a head MRI and just weeks ago i did the scan of which the only thing that showed up was some kind of hormone gland that was way too big. The lady at the eye clinic said that this wouldn't effect my vision.
And so i don't know what is wrong with me, my eyes have no problem and that's been confirmed a lot yet i keep getting sent back, but ive come to the conclusion that if my eyes are fine the only other thing that could cause this is my brain.
Does anyone have any idea whats wrong/ experience it would be much appreciated?
