Eye problems with zig zag lines?
My eye sight has got a little blurry from time to time, it gets worse if i get hot. Today it went blurry but I also got lots of blue zig zag lines all floating to the right in my line of vision. What could be causing this? It is not a migraine as I've suffered from them for years and never had this before. I am only 26 and have just been diagnosed with MS x
Hi, I know you say it's not migraine but you can start suffering different symptoms with migraine even if you haven't before. There's migraine without aura and migraine with aura. You might have had migraines without aura for years but have suddenly started to get aura. It could also be to do with the MS or could simply be something like low blood pressure. You say it gets worse when you get hot so it could be that not enough oxygen is getting to your brain - like what happens if someone is going to faint. This could be due to low blood pressure, anaemia, mild intolerance to heat ... there are a lot of things really!!
The zig-zag lines really do sound like migraine though (sorry, I know you don't think it is but it can change).
If you're worried about it, you should get it checked out, especially due to your MS diagnosis.
I was getting something similar. I'm not a headache/migraine sufferer, so I was pretty scared. I saw a eye consultant and apparently it was an ocular migraine, which sounds like what you described. They are painless and don't mean anything. Look it up and see if the symptoms are the what you are experiencing. The link i've provided does talk about seeing zig zag lines.
Hope you are well. x
