ok, i  know your not drs..... im not asking 'whats wrong with me'.... cause i have a drs apt on the 15th... im wrighting this more or less just to kinda get a hold on things, and make sure i have things written down for the dr...... my hubs says i down play things to much.... so, i think hes right, and i want to find out whats wrong... so yeah...

anywho, in o2 i started having issues with my vision... i had had migrains for a few years.... i started having grainy vision(kinda like tiny pencile dots).... i got used to it over the years, learned to see past it, went to an eye dr in o3,  and they said that 'it will go away some day'... but really, saw nothing..... so, as i said, i got used to it... well, i had our son in o6, and about 4 weeks after he was born, i fell and hit my head..... my migrains started getting worse, and so did my vision... i had a blury/dark spot in my right eye, and a few of the grainy spots got worse. still, i learned to get past it... saw an eye dr in 07, said they could not see any issues... lately, i have had issues with my whole eyesight going blury randomly.. you know, like when you wake up, before you rub your eyes..... and within the last week, in my right eye, i have had off and on blury issues.. my migrains are getting even worse, and happining dailyu...

so, this is what i need to tell my dr... i think i have it all right..

again... i am NOT looking for a diagnosis.. i hope to get the from my dr..... i just kinda wanted to get it out and look at it... wrighting helps me organize things better in my head and remember things more....

as of may

sounds like youre pretty organized, got things down pat, I hope your doctor is able to help you this time, I personally wouldnt accept 'it will go away eventually' as much of an answer but I understand some doctors suck, and insurance limits so many things, best of luck :-)

I don't want to scare you but have they given you an MRI? I started having migraines in '02 while pregnant with my 2nd child then in '05 I had my son and had a few. In '08 they kept getting worse and my vision in my right eye was horrible and i kept seeing black. My right arm went numb and my hand wouldn't work.  I went for my MRI and I had a brain tumor.  I had it removed and found out it was stage 3 brain cancer.  This past year has been a rocky one but I never gave up.  I hope it's nothing like this but make sure you are presistant with your Dr. they kept telling me all sorts of things it could be but never once did they think it was a brain tumor. I was only 29 so I was shocked and so were they.

 Write it down!! I have a bad habit of going to the drs and forgetting some questions I wanted to ask or something I felt they should know. Go in with a list, trust me. Start it now, and every time you think of something, add it to the list. I do that even when I'm taking my DS to the drs, so I don't forget something important. It's good you're going in to get checked out, and I hope everything goes well!!

Google "optical migraine"  I used to get them & it sounds a lot like what you have.  Good luck at the Dr.
