Back in 1994 the migraines were about 2 a week every other week, I was taking Imitrex . Then later years I was getting them 3 to 4 times a day, I couldn't stand it. My primary doctor gave me Topamax, starting with 50 mg, 100, 200 - 2 times a day. Well, I'm taking 200 mg 2 times a day and I'm still getting migraines.
Then I started getting these flashing lights in my right eye every 3 minutes, really big, I thought someone was flashing a light from my backyard behind me while I was on my computer and I turned around and no one was there. Then I started getting them in my left eye. I asked my husband do you see any flashing lights? So, I went and l in bedroom and turned off the lights and I could still see the flashing light coming out of my eyes. I told my husband I think I need to go to emergency.
They said they couldn't find anything wrong and to see my doctor, my doctor sent me to eye doctor, he couldn't find anything. He sent me to a eye retina specialist and he couldn't find anything wrong. He said he had one patient that had the same problem and his went anyway after one year, well I've topped that, I'm going on more than 4 years! Now the flashing lights are small and they only come every now and then. I don't drive at night!
