I have decided to ask you guys what you think I may have experienced.

Today, I had a squiggly line in my right eye that started to distort my vision for about 25 minutes. The squiggly line....I can't explain it right. When it rains, you know how the windshield of a car is like? Almost like that but with colors. Anyways, it was like that for about 25 minutes. Then I would get a headache like someone shook my head with such force. This is the 3rd time it has happened to me since February this year. I thought the 1st 2 times was the drink Monster that did thAt to me so I stopped drinking that. When today happened, I knew it definitely wasn't Monster related. I haven't had that drink for a month now. What do you think I am experiencing????

You should get an eye appointment. Your retina may be detaching. That was the eye doctors concerns about me when I had the same symptoms. The final diagnosis turned out to be ocular migraines (the headaches came in full force about a year later), but a torn or detached retina was the first thing they checked me for.

I read about those.  Isn't it like taking psychedic drugs?  You see colors and prisms?

I would make an appointment ASAP. Your retina could be torn or detaching.

Thanks! I remember someone mentioning this before when there was discussion about migraines. Do I need to see a Dr for this?

It has only happened to me like 3 times in the past 3 months...would it have been a lot worse?

That's it!!! That's what I saw...prisms on the side of my eye. It made me dizzy.
