Anyone see small, squiggly light type things b4 their eyes? Like little lights or bright tiny objects are snaking their way around.
I just saw a bunch and it's really scaring me.

I don't think it's retinal detachment as I have none of the other symptoms.
All I can figure is aural migraine.
Which I thought I had b4, for a few years actually, bc I'd see pin prick lights in white and purple.

But this was different. And unlike the purple specks, these were many at once vs a few here and there randomly over time.

Years ago I did see what you are describing. After ABX treatment started, I didn't see it again.

It looked exactly like what is seen under a microscope, the way the shapes moved.

I know the infective agents are microscopic. The only way I can explain it is that maybe I was seeing the reflection, somehow enlarged.

I know if someone looks up outside into the clear blue sky, something similar can be seen, but this happened inside. It did freak me out, but treatment was the cure.

I have aural migraines. That is pulsing lights going between bright and dark. That starts out right in my focal point area and expands into a circle around my line of vision.

This needs to be addressed. It can lead to a stroke if the squeezing of the veins (along with the optic nerves) continue. When blood slows down, it tends to clot.

For me, avoiding eggs, especially egg whites, has prevented migraines for years. I've heard that others also avoid eggs to control migraines.

I hope you find out what works for you.

I have aural migraines. It's a zig zaggy silver sparkly circle or lie. If I don't take migraine meds though I get a headache and know it's a migraine.

The thing outside with clear blue sky is normal.

If you look carefully you can sometimes see this effect inside as well.
But not sure if this is what you mean.

I might see that blue sky thing u mentioned. I also have visual snow.

I had a 3 hr eye exam about a tear ago and nothing serious was found. I have severe astigmatism and my conjuntiva is like doubled, as my eyes water daily.

But nothing other than that. I've seen neurologist in the past and they didn't find anything.

I'm not sure what to do or who to see

I have had this to the point my vision is basically obstructed and I have to lie down until it passes.

My doc told me it is in fact the active lyme and comes and goes with treatment.

I feel for you! It is very, very scary and disorienting.

Sending hugs!
