I get auras before a migraine. Starts with a vague pressure in the face then my vision is not as crisp as usual. It then proceeds blind spots and then the aura starts around the edges. I liken it to looking through cellophane.Maybe? I think I've had one of those.
My left eye is also way up on the pressure test the emergency doctor did - it measured at 38 thingybobs, and my right eye is within range, something like 18 thingybobs.
I've often wondered if I bring on my headaches. Or I'm not consciously focussed on trigger signs yet. But so many times, the day before I think to myself, I havent had one for a while. Boom next day.I get auras before a migraine. Starts with a vague pressure in the face then my vision is not as crisp as usual. It then proceeds blind spots and then the aura starts around the edges.

I don't believe in unscientific "complementary" medicine, but, ( ), Magnesium (chelated) does seem to be a useful for reducing the length of migraine events.So the ophthalmologist reckons it was an aura migraine, and I'm about the age for such things to occur.
He's I guess 5-7 years older than me, and had his first migraine/aura migraine in the past six months. I'm relieved it wasn't anything that Dr Google suggested.
It doesn't take much to upset the balance. My FIL had Parkinsons (quite late onset) and was a going ok until a change in medication. He then apparently mixed up the dosage and became catatonic for a short period but was never the same again.Pretty good outcomes today. I’ve have 2 operations for a torn retina and thought it had ‘gone’ again, after about 3 weeks. Surgeon had a look inside and all OK. I’d hate to go back to square one - recovery takes 5-6 weeks.
My 70 yo sister has controlled Parkinson’s. Her main issue is balance and a week ago had a bad fall and banged her head, hard. She went into dementia symptoms with hallucinations and got a bit violent with hospital people at first ( being confused). Visitors have been limited; I went a few days ago and she had improved. Today, pretty well back to normal . After lots of tests, current theory is that a change of Parkinson’s meds led to both the fall and exacerbated the condition afterwards. A close call.
Good news on the eye - detached retinas are a real worry so a good outcome for you.
Look up sphenopalatine blocks for migraines. Uses topical local anaesthetic.migraine events.

Excellent. so you have sulfur hexafluride gas bubble. it if was at the bottom of the eye (top of visual field ) it would be some type of silicone oil.Although its floating at the top of my eye, it appears at the bottom,
