Anyone who has a migraine knows how intense the pain is. Migraine headaches are usually caused by pain on one side of the head. The throbbing pain is enough to ruin all the work of the day.
Symptoms of ocular migraine may include light flashes and dark spots.
However, not all migraines cause headaches. Although there is often no pain, the symptoms occur through vision problems.
‘Ocular migraine’ is quite a rare physical problem. Because of this, the patient sees a flash of light in the eyes, the straight line seems to be curved, the colored spots in front of the eyes. Many people lose one eye temporarily or completely for some time. There are problems with reading, writing, and other tasks. Many people misunderstand ‘retinal migraine’ as ‘ocular migraine’.
Details are based on a report published on a health website in the light of medical science.
People with migraine headaches start to get predicted 20 to 30 minutes before the onset of the headache. Symptoms include numbness of the hands or face, dizziness, tingling sensations of touch, taste and smell, dark spots in front of the eyes, and zigzag lines.
These problems can last from 10 to 60 minutes and cover about half of the field of vision. This is called ‘ophthalmic migraines’.
‘Ocular migraine’ is an energy wave created from the back of the brain and it slowly moves forward. When this intense energy wave comes in front of it, its energy level is much higher, which causes colorful spots to appear in front of the eyes. Again for the same reason after some time, there is a lack of energy, resulting in dark spots.
The disease can be inherited.
Migraines are related to the levels of the hormone estrogen. This hormone regulates the levels of chemicals in the brain and the intensity of pain. Therefore, such ‘migraine’ can also occur due to hormonal differences.
This problem can also occur if there is a spasm or convulsion in the blood vessels behind the retina.
The description of ‘ocular migraine’ sounds scary but it is not very serious, it is treatable. Seek medical advice immediately if you notice symptoms.
