I do have high blood pressure in which I take meds for. I know that can cause an illusion of light. I also have experienced alot of paranormal in my life. Between dreams that come true, shadow figures, hearing people that I can't see, having things touch me that I can't see, knowing things before they happen...and so forth.
Well I occassionally see a bright white streak out of the side of my eye. Once it was right in front of my eyes and had very sharp defined edges where they looked like 2 narrow tall rectangles. It's only been the last 7yrs that I've lived here and it's only in my bedroom. I've looked a little up online and I've found various explanations.
My mom has heard voices call her name and briefly when she was in therapy she was asked if she heard voices or was spiritual. She said she told them no to both. I don't have the psychological issues that she does but...once a psychic told her that her third eye was closed and if she'd open it she would see amazing things.
I'm terrified to mention it to my doctor. What if it's paranormal ( in which case can't quite be proven anyway ) but their theory will stay on my permanent chart if they think I'm crazy.
Please tell me what you think...whether I get offended or not.

Hate to burst your psychic bubble but you probably have the beginning of a retinal tear & floaters. Google it then make an appt. with a Ophthalmologist ASAP. Time is of the essence here!

Migraines my hav the streaks of blinding white light sometimes. Have you had your eyes checked recently? It seems to me that I read something about one of the regenerative eye diseases that had symptoms in the early stages similar to what you describe.
I do know that some brain tumors can press on various parts and cause us to experience things that are not there but those require a scan.
I don't discount the possibility of the paranormal but I agree that many people would think that you are nuts, especially if you have a family history which includes metal illness.
