Had an eye issue and I'm panicking...
« on: March 09, 2014, 03:43:22 PM »
Hello there,

This afternoon I had a strange occurrence.  I was driving home and had to stop at a red light.  When I stopped, I noticed that the road in front of me and the objects in front of me seemed to be getting further away, even though I was in the same position.  The road seemed to be stretching further in front of me.  It was very worrisome, and so of course I had a full fledged panic attack afterwards.  Also, once I got home I had an ocular headache as well (my vision turned to zig-zags and I had to take a nap).

My main questions is this: Has anyone had this happen to them before?  Is this a new symptom of anxiety or something that I should get checked out?

I THINK I know what you mean - is it like you were at a stop, but the road and everything seemed to be ALL moving?  That maybe unconsciously you stepped on the brake a little harder because you thought your car may have been drifting slowly backwards?   ANXIETY!  And if that's what you mean?  Yep, been there, done that   :dazed:
I've always gotten ocular migraines, not sure if the 2 are related - I know I got real dizzy when I got home the time it happened real bad.

Most likely this was just a precursor to the migraine aura. I get them all the time before the actual aura of the zig zag lines. Mine are a slight missing spot in my vision that will last a few minutes before the aura starts. I've been getting them for 35 years.
