Today I had my 2nd ocular migraine. The first time I had it five years ago, I was quite certain that I was either having a stroke or an aneurysm. A anxiety-ridden trip to my hospital's emergency ward, dispelled my worst fears as the ER doc diagnosed it as an Ocular Migraine.
Today's episode hit me in a very crowded shopping mall. I was actually able to identify it immediately and NOT freak out. Being the die-hard shopper that I am, I continued shopping in spite of the fireworks in front of my eyes.
We made it home, just in time for the regular migraine and the "sweats" to set in. Damn!
